Skins Spotlight With Defensive End Kedric Golston

Only two Washington Redskins remain from the 2006 roster.

The first, of course, is wide receiver Santana Moss who has climbed into the greatest wide receivers in team history talk with his precise route running, flashy moves and consistent hands. No matter what day of the week it is, Moss has a large media following due to his quotability and the nature of his position drawing attention.

But who is the other long-tenured Redskins? Defensive end Kedric Golston.

While he may not grasp headlines or have a choreographed sack dance, Golston is a player coaches know they can count on and is a voice younger players, regardless of position, listen to.

On Wednesday, caught up with Golston to get his insight on the importance of veteran leadership on the defensive line and head coach Jay Gruden’s contagious attitude.

In eight seasons with the Redskins, Golston has recorded 205 tackles and seven sacks.
