Redskins give Doughty a second-round tender
The Redskins gave safety Reed Doughty a second-round tender, people familiar with the move said today.
Doughty rebounded nicely last season after his 2008 season was cut short because of back surgery. He supplanted Chris Horton as the starter at strong safety in the second half and finished third on the team with 75 solo tackles (91 overall). Doughty, who also had two sacks and an interception, had a salary of a little more than $542,000. The tender offer is for approximately $1.75 million.
Doughty could be a good fit for the 3-4 scheme the Redskins plan to run under defensive coordinator Jim Haslett. Players in the secondary will have more responsibility in terms of making calls, and Doughty is among the brightest players on the team, coaches and players say.

Redskins make low tender to Kedric Golston
With free agency beginning at midnight on Thursday, we're starting to hear more about the Redskins' plans for their restricted free agents.
The Redskins made a low tender to Kedric Golston, people familiar with the situation said today, meaning they would receive a second-round draft pick as compensation for the defensive tackle if he received an offer from another team that they were not willing to match.
The four-year veteran was a key member of the league's 10th-ranked defense last season. With Pro Bowl defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth often slowed because of injuries, Golston started five games and played in 16.
Especially strong against the run, Golston was credited with 22 unassisted tackles (34 overall), two sacks and a forced fumble. During the season, Pro Bowl middle linebacker London Fletcher praised the dependable Golston for "doing a lot to help our defense that most people probably just don't understand."
Next season, Golston is expected to back up Haynesworth at nose tackle in the Redskins' new 3-4 base alignment.
