Redskins sign ex-Bengal Jones

The Associated Press

        ASHBURN, Va. — Former Bengal Rod Jones, a backup tackle last season with the St. Louis Rams, signed a three-year contract with the Washington Redskins on Tuesday.

        The Redskins plan to start Jones at guard, a position he played earlier in his career with the Bengals. He played five seasons in Cincinnati before joining the Rams last year.

        The Redskins are trying to replace both starting guards from last season. Dave Szott signed as a free agent with the New York Jets. Ben Coleman is also a free agent, and the Redskins have made no effort to re-sign him. Jones, 28, has started 37 games in the NFL, mostly at tackle.
