The Washington Redskins have announced they are going to sign former Patriots defensive tackle Ron Brace.

Brace, 26, spent the first four years of his career in New England after being drafted by the Patriots 40th overall in the second round in 2009. He was a bit player, expected to develop as a burgeoning tackle behind Vince Wilfork. But that never materialized.

He played only 92 snaps this season before being cut after Week 13. He totaled three quarterback pressures and four tackles. He has 39 career tackles and no sacks.

Brace played at Boston College and is originally from Worcester.
