Brian Simmons, a 6-foot-5, 304-pound offensive lineman who started all 18 games at left tackle for the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats last season, worked out for the Washington Redskins last week, according to a person familiar with the matter.
Simmons, 27, played four seasons in college at Oklahoma, where he was a teammate of left tackle Trent Williams and occasionally started next to him at left guard. He was in New England’s training camp in 2010 after going undrafted, then signed with Hamilton for the 2011 season.
A pending CFL free agent, Simmons has been pursuing an opportunity in the NFL. He was scheduled for workouts with six teams, including Miami, with whom he worked out two weeks ago.
