Redskins signed G/C Mike McGlynn to a one-year contract.
McGlynn, 29, was a liability in 14 starts with Indianapolis last season, but brings versatility to D.C. and 48 career starts. At 6'4/325, McGlynn also fits the new size profile for a Washington team trying to get bigger up front. Mar 28 - 2:35 PM

Free agent G/C Mike McGlynn will visit the Titans.

McGlynn is set to arrive in Nashville on Wednesday night and continue his visit through Thursday. With Rob Turner a free agent, the Titans are looking for interior line depth. McGlynn has also talked to the Rams, Packers, and Redskins.

Free agent G/C Mike McGlynn is visiting the Rams.

The Rams are arguably the most desperate team in the league for offensive line help. They currently don't even have a capable left guard and employ zero depth. McGlynn can play the interior line but ideally wouldn't be a starter.

Free agent G/C Mike McGlynn is visiting the Redskins.

Washington is on the prowl for interior line help. McGlynn started 14 games -- 11 at right guard and three at center -- for the Colts last season but was part of Indy's problem, not a solution. McGlynn played for coach Jay Gruden in 2011.

Impending free agent OG Mike McGlynn is not expected back with the Colts.

The Colts' interior line was a trainwreck this season, and McGlynn was a big reason why. McGlynn looked overmatched playing out of his natural center position. Rotoworld has McGlynn ranked as the 16th best free agent center.

Colts RG Mike McGlynn sustained a fracture in his thumb during Sunday's Week 10 loss to St. Louis.

Coach Chuck Pagano said McGlynn will get the digit casted up and then be listed as day to day. We've seen interior linemen play with clubs consistently, but the Colts are on a short week as they'll face the Titans on Thursday night. Consider the struggling McGlynn questionable.

Colts RG Mike McGlynn triggered an escalator in his contract, raising his 2013 salary from $1.25 million to $1.5 million.

McGlynn signed a two-year deal as a free agent last offseason, coming over from the Eagles with GM Ryan Grigson. He went on to start all 16 games at right guard, but he proved to be a major part of the Colts' offensive line problem. McGlynn has the ability to play both guard and center, and is better suited for a backup role.

Colts RG Mike McGlynn (high-ankle sprain) has resumed practicing this week.

"I'm ready to go this week," said McGlynn, "excited about the first game and getting this season started." Part of an overhauled interior along with LG Joe Reitz and C Samson Satele, McGlynn is practicing without limits.

Colts RT Mike McGlynn is out indefinitely with a high-ankle sprain.

McGlynn was competing with Winston Justice for right tackle duties, but this should just about wrap up the competition in Justice's favor. McGlynn is in a race against time to be ready for Week 1. McGlynn is a highly ordinary talent, but the Colts' thin line can ill afford any injuries.

Taking on a leadership role after Jeff Saturday's exit, Mike McGlynn is penciled in as the starting right guard on a rebuilt Colts offensive line.

McGlynn and RT Winston Justice are favorites of new GM Ryan Grigson, who imported them from Philly. With 2011 second-rounder Ben Ijalana still inexperienced and recovering from a knee injury, Joe Reitz has the edge at left guard. Samson Satele and Anthony Castonzo are locked in at center and left tackle respectively.

Colts agreed to terms with C/G Mike McGlynn.

This move has new GM Ryan Grigson's fingerprints all over it. He was director of college scouting when the Eagles drafted McGlynn out of Pittsburgh as a 2008 fourth-round pick. McGlynn could end competing for a starting job in Indy.

Bengals claimed C/G Mike McGlynn off waivers from the Eagles.

The Colts, Rams, and Ravens also put in claims. A fourth-year player out of Pitt, McGlynn started all 16 games in place of Jamaal Jackson at center last season. He'll add quality depth as an inside swingman for the Bengals.

Eagles waived C/G Mike McGlynn.

McGlynn held his own as a run blocker while filling in for Jamaal Jackson last season. He was expected to compete for a starting interior job at the beginning of camp, but was quickly passed by rookie and OL coach Howard Mudd favorite Jason Kelce.

Eagles C/G Mike McGlynn is expected to move into a backup role this year, "assuming no injury setbacks" to Jamaal Jackson.

Jackson is coming off a torn triceps last year after tearing his ACL the year before. McGlynn proved capable as a run blocker in 2010, but struggled in pass protection. Now 100 percent healthy, Jackson will upgrade the interior along with first-round RG Danny Watkins.

Mike McGlynn will be the Eagles' starting center for the rest of the season with Jamaal Jackson (ACL tear) on injured reserve.

Though Jackson is hard to replace, early signs for McGlynn are encouraging. Playing the majority of Week 1, he held up quite well against a Green Bay defense that led the league in 2009 run defense, with LeSean McCoy getting plenty of up-the-gut holes. It's not a huge downgrade for McCoy's sake.
