Broncos signed OT Tyler Polumbus to a one-year contract.

The Broncos needed offensive line help regardless, but the signing could indicate LT Ty Sambrailo (shoulder) is in danger of missing Week 4. Polumbus was released by the Falcons on Tuesday. S Josh Bush was waived in a corresponding move.

Falcons released OT Tyler Polumbus.

Signed in May, Polumbus has extensive experience playing for OC Kyle Shanahan, but couldn't put heat on ineffective RT Ryan Schraeder. Now 30, it could be a while before Polumbus' phone rings.

Falcons signed RT Tyler Polumbus, formerly of the Redskins.

30-year-old Polumbus is a veteran of new Falcons playcaller Kyle Shanahan's zone-blocking scheme, playing the best football of his career under Shanahan in Washington. In Atlanta, Polumbus will compete for the Falcons' starting right tackle job with Ryan Schraeder and Lamar Holmes, among others.

Free agent OT Tyler Polumbus worked out for the Falcons on Tuesday.

It's Polumbus' first-known visit since the Redskins let him walk in free agency. The Falcons have a crater opposite LT Jake Matthews, but Polumbus would be signed as a competitor, not a starter.

Redskins RT Tyler Polumbus exited Monday night's Week 5 game against the Seahawks with a hand injury and is questionable to return.

Polumbus was hurt on the Redskins' opening drive. Rookie Morgan Moses came on to replace him. Polumbus is annually near the bottom of PFF's tackle ranks.

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim believes RT Tyler Polumbus is the starter and he does not "see that changing any time soon."

When Washington drafted Morgan Moses with the No. 66 overall pick, the assumption was he would take over the right tackle position immediately. Keim disagrees, saying Moses "has too many issues to smooth out to be an immediate starter." Polumbus should hold onto the job for his contract year.

Sources tell the Washington Post that coach Mike Shanahan views RT Tyler Polumbus as "his guy."

Polumbus started 15 games last season and the Redskins led the NFL in rushing, but he graded out 77th among 80 qualifying tackles per PFF. Only Gabe Carimi, D'Anthony Batiste and Michael Harris were worse in pass protection. Still, Polumbus will enter camp as the starter ahead of newcomers Jeremy Trueblood and Tom Compton. This was the first offseason in his career he's been completely devoted to the right tackle spot.

The Washington Examiner confirms Tyler Polumbus is the favorite for the Redskins' starting right tackle job.

Polumbus is only competing with the likes of Jeremy Trueblood and Tony Pashos after starting 15 games last season. 2012 sixth-round pick Tom Compton is expected to stay on the left side for now, backing up Trent Williams.

CSN Washington believes Tyler Polumbus has the "inside track" to the Redskins' starting right tackle job.

Polumbus started 15 games at right tackle for Washington last season, but he was completely over-matched as both a run and pass blocker. The Redskins re-signed Polumbus to a two-year deal, but they also brought in veterans Jeremy Trueblood and Tony Pashos as competition. The team is also reportedly very high on 2012 sixth-round pick Tom Compton, but he might be another year away.

Redskins re-signed RT Tyler Polumbus to a two-year contract.

Polumbus flirted with the Jaguars, but it was always in his best interest to stay in Washington's zone scheme, where he is viewed as a starting-caliber player. Pro Football Focus would vehemently disagree with the Redskins' evaluation, giving Polumbus the single-worst right tackle grade in the NFL last season. Polumbus, ideally, would be a swing tackle. He'll face competition from Bucs castoff Jeremy Trueblood and perhaps a rookie draft pick in training camp.

Free agent RT Tyler Polumbus will visit the Jaguars on Thursday.

The Jaguars are in dire need of a right tackle after Cameron Bradfield and Guy Whimper stunk up the joint at the position last season. However, Polumbus wasn't much better in Washington. Jacksonville needs to be aiming higher for a starter.

Redskins RT Tyler Polumbus (concussion) has been cleared to practice.

Polumbus suffered the concussion in Week 15, and Maurice Hurt filled in well against the Eagles last week. As we know, getting cleared to practice isn't the final hurdle. Polumbus will still need to be cleared by an independent neurologist in advance of Sunday's playoff play-in game against the Cowboys.

Redskins RT Tyler Polumbus is still bothered by concussion symptoms.

Polumbus has not even been cleared to practice since sustaining his concussion in the Week 15 win at Cleveland. Maurice Hurt, who handled himself well in a Week 16 spot-start, will likely get the nod again for Sunday night's showdown with the Cowboys.
Thu, Dec 27, 2012 08:52:00 AM

Redskins RT Tyler Polumbus (concussion) will continue to be evaluated this week.

Polumbus was a surprise inactive on Sunday and it sounds like he'll need to gain clearance from an independent neurologist before returning. With Jordan Black suspended, the Redskins could be forced to start Maurice Hurt once again at right tackle. Polumbus should be considered questionable for Week 17.
