The Washington Redskins finalizing deal tackle Donald Penn on Tuesday. He received a one-year deal.

According to NFL Network’s Insider Ian Rapoport, Penn is on his way to Washington, D.C. to finalize his deal. Rapoport said the deal is expected to become official tomorrow.

The 36-year-old Los Angeles, California native is a safety net for the team, as Trent Williams continues to hold out. The team also signed tackle Corey Robinson as another safety net.

Penn was released by the Raiders in March. He received little interested until signing with the Redskins five months later.

This will be Penn’s third NFL team. He spent his first seven years of his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He signed with the Oakland Raiders before the 2014 season and spent five seasons with the team.

Penn was released by the Raiders after playing in a career-low 4 games during the 2018 season. Before the four games in 2018, his previous low was 14 games during the 2017 season.

The disgruntled tackle is not happy with the franchise. A report by Jason La Canfora said the relationship between Williams and team President Bruce Allen is ‘totally fractured.’

Williams is not happy with the team’s medical staff. He believes that the team misdiagnosed his condition that led to Williams having a growth removed from his scalp.

Williams has two years left on his contract. However, not all of the $30 million remaining is guaranteed.
