The Washington Redskins plan to re-sign defensive lineman Phil Taylor Sr. to a one-year deal, the Washington Post reported Tuesday.
Injuries have plagued Taylor's career. He was scheduled to be a starter for the Redskins last season before he suffered a torn left quadriceps in a preseason game that required surgery and ended his season.
The 337-pound Taylor, who turns 30 on Saturday, has not played in a regular-season NFL game since 2014, when he was with the Cleveland Browns.
Knee injuries prevented him from playing in 2015 and 2016, and Taylor considered retirement in December 2016.
However, he decided to try again with the Redskins and seemed to be playing at a high level before his quadriceps injury occurred.
