Washington Redskins restricted free agent Kedric Golston has signed a new contract with the club. Golston, 26, has become a very dependable defensive tackle and he'll apparently play nose tackle in Jim Haslett's 3-4 scheme.
And if Mike Shanahan is able to trade Albert Haynesworth during the draft, Golston would likely be his replacement. Haslett has watched a ton of film on Golston and apparently liked what he saw. He's certainly not the earth-moving type nose tackle that you see in a lot of 3-4 schemes, but he'll be able to use his quickness and play-making ability. He'll be more along the lines of a Jay Ratliff, who uses his high motor and immense strength to take on massive blockers.
