Redskins re-sign offensive tackle Ty Nsekhe

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) The Washington Redskins have re-signed offensive tackle Ty Nsekhe.

The 31-year-old started four games at left tackle last season when Trent Williams was serving a suspension. The team announced Nsekhe's deal Monday.

Nsekhe was an exclusive rights free agent along with fellow offensive lineman Vinston Painter, who the Redskins re-signed last week.

The former Arena Football League player who broke into the NFL with the Rams in 2012 has started six games in the past two seasons with Washington. Former Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan had said Nsekhe could start for several NFL teams, but he's the team's top backup tackle behind Williams and Morgan Moses.
