The Washington Redskins will host defensive lineman Andre Branch for a free agent visit, NFL Insider Ian Rapoport is reporting.

Branch, 26, was born in Richmond, Va., and was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the second round of the 2012 draft with the No. 38-overall pick.

In four seasons with the Jaguars, Branch has totaled 91 tackles with 14 sacks and five fumbles forced. Brach made his NFL debut on Oct. 4, 2012, against the Indianapolis Colts.

He got his first sack as a professional on Oct. 25, 2012, when he took down Buffalo Bills quarterback E.J. Manuel.

The Clemson product finished his rookie season with 12 tackles along with a sack, a pass defensed and a forced fumble.

While Branch would not start a game during the 2013 and 2014 seasons, he was a key player in the Jaguars’ defensive line rotation, as he collected 55 tackles along with nine sacks, six passes defensed and two fumbles forced during that time frame.

Branch ended the 2013 season particularly strong, as he tallied five sacks in Jacksonville’s last seven games.

The 6-foot-5, 265 pounder tallied two sacks in the 2014 regular season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Last December, Branch scored his first career touchdown when he strip sacked Colts quarterback Matthew Hasselbeck and returned it 49 yards for the score.

Branch is the third player that has reportedly visited the Redskins this week as veterans Chris Long and Vernon Davis have already -- or are planning to -- come to Washington.

The Redskins are looking to bolster their defensive line over the next few months.

Earlier this week, the team released Jason Hatcher after two seasons in Washington. Frank Kearse, a rotational player, is also an unrestricted free agent and Terrance Knighton said he’s not returning to the Redskins after completing his one-year deal for the 2015 season.
