The Redskins used a position of depth to acquire center depth. They traded corner Dashaun Phillips to Pittsburgh for center Lucas Crowley, an undrafted free agent who started the last two years at Carolina. It's likely a swap of players who would have been cut. The Redskins needed more centers with Spencer Long sidelined after knee surgery. The Redskins hope Long returns for the season opener.
