ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - The Washington Redskins have made a modest start to the NFL's free agency period by bringing back punter Sav Rocca and backup defensive lineman Kedric Golston.
The Redskins on Tuesday agreed to a two-year deal with Rocca, the 39-year-old former Australian rules football player who has played two seasons in Washington.
Golston gets a three-year contract worth a maximum of $5.2 million, including a $360,000 signing bonus. He's one of the Redskins' longest tenured players and will return for an eighth season in Washington.
The Redskins are traditionally active in free agency, but they have little money to spend because of a $36 million salary cap penalty imposed by the NFL for the way they structured contracts during the 2010 uncapped season.
