The Washington Redskins reached agreement with a trio of free agents Tuesday, garnering deals with former Cleveland Browns guard Shawn Lauvao, former Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Andre Roberts and former Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Adam Hayward, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The Redskins also re-signed wide receiver Santana Moss to a one-year deal.

Lauvao agreed to a four-year deal worth $17 million, and Roberts' deal is worth $16 million over four years, sources say.

Lauvao, 26, spent his first four seasons with Browns, starting 44 of 53 games. Roberts, who turned 26 in January, was third on the Cardinals with 471 yards on 43 receptions.

Coming off a career year in 2012, Roberts' role was reduced in 2013 under first-year coach Bruce Arians. Roberts was named the third receiver, behind Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd. He had a season high 97 yards on eight catches in Week 1 against St. Louis.

Moss, 34, will return to the Redskins for a 10th season. He had a down season in 2013, catching 42 passes for 452 yards and two touchdowns.

Hayward, 29, had 25 tackles with Tampa Bay last season.

ESPN.com Redskins reporter John Keim and Cardinals reporter Josh Weinfuss contributed to this report.
