ASHBURN, Va. (CBSDC/AP) — The Washington Redskins made a modest start to the NFL’s free agency period by bringing back their punter and a defensive lineman.

The Redskins on Tuesday agreed to a two-year deal with Sav Rocca, the 39-year-old former Australian rules football player who has played two seasons in Washington.

The team also agreed to a three-year deal with Kedric Golston, who has been with the Redskins since he was drafted in the sixth round of the 2006 NFL Draft. The eighth-year defensive end is a key part of the defensive line rotation.

The Redskins are traditionally an active player in free agency, but they have little money to spend because of a $36 million salary cap penalty imposed by the NFL for the way they structured contracts during the 2010 uncapped season. The second half of the penalty took effect Tuesday at the formal start of the new league year.

The Redskins cut cornerback DeAngelo Hall on Monday to get under the cap and have renegotiated the contracts of defensive end Adam Carriker and wide receiver Santana Moss.

Lorenzo Alexander’s agent announced Tuesday night the special teams captain would be signing with a new team. He inked a deal with the Arizona Cardinals on Wednesday afternoon.
