Redskins Signing OL Cornelius Lucas To Two-Year, $5.3M Deal

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Redskins are signing OL Cornelius Lucas to a two-year, $5.3 million contract. 

Lucas, 28, signed on with the Lions as an undrafted free agent out of Kansas State back in 2014. He has managed to make the 53-man roster in each of his three years in the NFL and finished playing out his three-year, $1,550,000 contract with the Lions.

Lucas returned to the Lions on a restricted deal for the 2017 season, but was among the team’s final roster cuts. The Rams signed him to a contract a few weeks into the regular season and brought him back on a new deal last year. 

Unfortunately, Lucas wound up being among the Rams’ final roster cuts coming out of the preseason and he was on and off of the Saints’ roster in 2018 before eventually joining the Bears last year. 

In 2019, Lucas appeared in all 16 games for the Bears, making eight starts. 

We had him included in our Top 100 Available 2020 Free Agents list.
