Suspension gives Redskins' Golston chance to start
Only Santana Moss has been on the Redskins roster longer than Golston, who has been an off-and-on starter and reliable special teams player since he was chosen in the sixth round of the 2006 draft.
Golston signed a three-year deal in March to stay with the Redskins. It's turning out to be a good insurance policy.
The 30-year-old Golston has played in 98 games and started 43 over seven seasons. His most noteworthy highlight probably came when he tackled Minnesota Vikings running back Tony Richardson for a safety in 2007.
Says Golston: "I understand what I do isn't always sexy."
