Skins' Golston signs new contract

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.

The first minicamp of the Shanahan era begins today. There will be some media availability Sunday. And if you've ever wondered what Donovan McNabb would look like in a Redskins uniform, here ya go.
