The Washington Redskins have signed LB Rocky McIntosh to his tender. McIntosh has held out signing before today, at times expressing displeasure of not getting offered a long term deal with Washington. However, with a new coaching staff and defensive scheme change in place, the Redskins opted to not pursue a long term contract right now. Smart move. Make Rocky show he can excel in the new 3-4 defense being installed by new DC Jim Haslett.
Additionally, the Redskins have released K Justin Medlock and OT Paul Fanaika. Does Medlock's release mean K Graham Gano enters training camp in July unchallenged? Little surprising, especially given the fact Mike Shanahan had been s proponent of competition at nearly every roster spot.
