Redskins Sign OL Tony Bergstrom, Release DL A.J. Francis


The Washington Redskins announced Wednesday that they’ve signed OL Tony Bergstrom to a contract and released DT A.J. Francis.

Bergstrom, 31, is a former third-round pick of the Raiders back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract with the Raiders before signing a two-year, $5.75 million deal that included $1.5 million guaranteed with the Texans back in March of last year.

Bergstrom was set to make a base salary of $1.25 million for the 2017 season when the Texans released him in a move that freed up $2,875,000 of available cap space. The Cardinals later signed him to a one-year contract this past May before trading him to the Ravens for a conditional seventh-round pick coming out of the preseason.

Bergstrom has been on and off of the Ravens’ active roster this season.

In 2017, Bergstrom has appeared in four games for the Ravens.
