The only sure thing on the Redskins' offensive line is OLT Trent Williams, but the team is expecting much more in Year Two from ORT Jammal Brown, who struggled to stay healthy most of last season after coming over in a trade. After that, there's a lot of speculation. C Casey Rabach had a decent season, but he turns 34 in September and might be deemed too old or expensive. OLG Kory Lichtensteiger was respectable after beating out Derrick Dockery late in the season, and though he's light, Lichtensteiger fits the mold of the smaller, quicker offensive lineman that Mike Shanahan seeks. Artis Hicks, who lost his starting ORG job to Will Montgomery during the season, could return as a jack-of-all-trades reserve, but he was not effective as a starter. Montgomery was barely adequate too, even though he also fits the Shanahan mold. Expect the interior to get some reinforcements in the offseason.
