ASHBURN, Va. -- Left guard Derrick Dockery is returning to the Washington Redskins, agreeing to terms with the busy team Friday night.
The five-year deal is worth $26 million, including $8.2 in guaranteed money, reports NFL Network's Adam Schefter.
He was released by Buffalo on Thursday, when the Bills cleared salary cap space to prepare for free agency.
Dockery was a third-round draft pick of the Redskins in 2003, and played his first four NFL seasons with the team -- starting every game in the 2004, 2005 and 2006 seasons. He left for Buffalo as a free agent after the 2006 season.
