The Redskins have re-signed long snapper Ethan Albright, the team announced on Wednesday. Albright, a 12-year veteran who has played in Washington the last five years, has been a staple on the Redskins' special teams units.
In a job that gets little notice unless something goes awry, Albright has been consistent and reliable during his tenure in Washington. The 6-5, 265-pounder was flawless as the Redskins' long snapper last season, playing in all 16 regular-season games, plus both playoff games.
Albright also recorded four special teams tackles last season and has 53 tackles for his career.
It was the tenth consecutive season that Albright had played in all 16 NFL regular-season games.
Albright, easily identified around Redskins Park due to his bright red hair, began his NFL career in 1994 as an undrafted free agent with the Miami Dolphins. He joined the Buffalo Bills in 1996 and served as the team's long snapper for five seasons before signing with Washington in 2001.
The Redskins also completed the signing of defensive end Sean Guthrie, a 6-4, 269-pounder who was with the Indianapolis Colts last preseason. He was released by the Colts on Sept. 3.
Prior to his stint with the Colts, Guthrie was with the New York Giants from 2002-04 but did not see any game action. He played his collegiate ball at Boston College.
