Redskins Tender Exclusive Rights Free Agents Ty Nsekhe And Vinston Painter

Posted Feb 28, 2017

The Washington Redskins have tendered tackle Ty Nsekhe and offensive lineman Vinston Painter, both of whom are exclusive rights free agents.

The Washington Redskins have tendered tackle Ty Nsekhe and offensive lineman Vinston Painter, both of whom are exclusive rights free agents.

The Washington Redskins on Tuesday announced that they have tendered exclusive rights free agents Ty Nsekhe and Vinston Painter.

The pair of offensive lineman were on the Redskins’ active roster for the 2016 season, with Nsekhe appearing in all 16 regular season games along with a career-high four starts.

Nsekhe, 31, served as the team’s swing tackle but was called into the starting lineup at left tackle for the four games following the Redskins’ Week 9 bye as Trent Williams served a suspension. While Nsekhe had started just two games prior to the 2016 season, the Texas State product didn’t have any issues filling in for the five-time Pro Bowler.

"I had full confidence in Ty,” Williams said during his return. “I feel Ty had the best camp of all the offensive lineman, that Ty had the best camp, that he made the most improvement during camp. I knew we wouldn’t have a drop off at the position. It made it a lot easier.”

Nsekhe finished the year with 388 offensive snaps, sixth most among Redskins offensive linemen.

In his two seasons in Washington, the previously little-known Nsekhe has appeared in 29 regular season games with six starts.

Painter, meanwhile, originally joined the Redskins as a practice squad addition before being called up to the active roster in October.

The Virginia Tech product appeared on 10 offensive snaps during the season.

With Nsekhe and Painter tender, the Redskins will return their top two reserve offensive tackles.
