Per Schefter: Redskins Sign Another Nose Tackle

@Adam_Schefter: Redskins reached agreement with former Jets nose tackle Howard Green on a one-year contract.

ProFootballTalk.com further writes:

The signing of Green, who played in 12 games for the Jets last year, could turn out to be a bigger story than meets the eye if it makes the Redskins feel like they have more leverage in dealing with (and possibly trading) defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth.

Green is obviously nowhere near the impact player that Haynesworth is, but Green will be much less expensive than Haynesworth and much more willing to buy into the role of nose tackle in Haslett’s 3-4 defense than Haynesworth.
