LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — The Washington Redskins and defensive end Doug Worthington have agreed to terms on a new one-year contract.

Worthington, 26, signed his exclusive rights tender worth a reported $495,000.

The Ohio State product missed all of last year while recovering from surgery to repair a torn biceps tendon sustained during the offseason.

After showing promise during the preseason, Worthington spent the bulk of 2011 on Washington’s practice squad before being promoted to the active roster late in the year.

He began the 2012 season on the practice squad, but was promoted to the active roster after defensive end Adam Carriker was lost to a torn quadriceps tendon during a Week 2 loss to the St. Louis Rams. His playing time increased late in the season.

Worthington was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Draft. His career also includes a stint with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Redskins also recently re-signed wide receiver Aldrick Robinson to a one-year deal.
