Redskins claim RG3’s college center off waivers

The Washington Redskins have acquired Robert Griffin III’s

college center, claiming J.D. Walton off waivers from the Denver

Broncos.

Griffin and Walton were teammates for two seasons at Baylor

before starting their NFL careers. Walton was a third-round pick by

the Broncos in 2010 and started 36 games, but he’s been sidelined

since Week 4 of last season because of a severe ankle injury that

has required multiple surgeries.

To make room on the roster, the Redskins waived receiver Lance

Lewis.
