The Washington Post’s oddly-named Redskins blog is reporting that the Redskins have signed Seahawks tackle Sean Locklear, which is nice. What I know about him after spending a few minutes on the Internet:
— He’s 30 years old, 6’4″ tall and 310 pounds.
— His “mother is full-blooded Lumbee” (via Wikipedia).
— He was arrested the night Seattle beat the Skins in the 2006 playoffs.
— He played guard in college, which gives the Skins some options.
— Sounds like he’s a pretty good pass-blocking tackle.
— Sounds like he’s a pretty poor run-blocking tackle.
So, yeah, seems like a good thing, even if we don’t know the dollars yet.
