The Washington Football Team is set to have Pro Bowl tackle Charles Leno visit its facility on Monday in light of the Chicago Bears releasing him this week, according to multiple reports.
Washington just drafted Texas tackle Sam Cosmi in the second round with the intention he would compete for the starting left tackle spot, but Leno has a proven track record at the position. Leno, 29, made the Pro Bowl in 2018 and has been a reliable starter since entering the league as a seventh-rounder in 2017.
Cosmi can also play on the right side as he played right tackle in high school and as a sophomore at Texas.
The Bears released Leno, who is 6-foot-4, this week after drafting Oklahoma State’s Teven Jenkins in the second round.
Last year, after trading Trent Williams, Washington had a rotating door at left tackle with Geron Christian, Cornelius Lucas and even right tackle Morgan Moses. Lucas, 29, started the majority of the season, but is entering the final year of his contract.
