WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — The Washington Redskins announced Kory Lichtensteiger signed his restricted free agent tender on Tuesday. An original-round tender offer was extended to the recovering guard earlier this month.

Lichtensteiger will earn roughly $1.2 million next season.

The 26-year-old started five games last season before suffering a devastating knee injury in October. He subsequently had surgery to repair tears to his ACL, MCL and meniscus.

At the time, Lichtensteiger said he thought it would be a six-to-eight month recovery process — meaning late April to June.

Lichtensteiger has appeared in 37 career games with 19 starts in his three-year NFL career.

The Redskins also confirmed defensive end Adam Carriker re-signed with the team. The former first-round draft pick signed a four-year, $20 million deal shortly after the free agency period began.

The 27-year-old recorded a career-high 5.5 sacks in 15 starts last season.
