Redskins sign Black, release Goff

Postby SouthLondonRedskin » Mon Jul 30, 2012 6:21 pm

The Redskins announced today that they have signed free agent offensive lineman Jordan Black.

In a corresponding move, the Redskins also released injured linebacker Jonathan Goff.

Black (6-5, 305) was originally drafted out of Notre Dame by the Kansas City Chiefs in the fifth round (153rd overall) of the 2003 NFL Draft.

On March 9, 2007, he signed with the Houston Texans as an unrestricted free agent. He was released by the Texans on June 9, 2008, before signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Dec. 22.

He was released by the Jaguars on Feb. 7, 2011 and signed by the New Orleans Saints on Aug. 10. He was released by the Saints on Sept. 3, 2011.

The 32-year-old lineman is entering his seventh NFL season having appeared in 80 career games with 40 starts.

Black played collegiately at Notre Dame from 1998-2001, starting all 31 games in which he appeared. During his time with the Irish, he started games at both left tackle and right guard.

As a junior in 2000, he was part of the squad that earned the program’s first BCS game berth, appearing in the 2001 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.

Black was born Jan. 20, 1980, and attended Dallas Christian (Texas) H.S., where he earned USA Today honorable mention All-American honors as a senior. He helped lead Dallas Christian to private-school state titles in 1995 and 1997, playing both at both offensive tackle and defensive tackle.

Goff (6-2, 241) signed with the Redskins as an unrestricted free agent on April 30, 2012.

You never know. He does know the offense and can provide depth at the position if any of the younger guys don't pan out.
