Redskins Sign Shaun Alexander

The ‘Skins signed Shaun Alexander to a one-year deal on Tuesday to fill in for Ladell Betts as he recovers from a knee injury. Betts is expected to miss around three weeks with the injury.  Alexander will back up starting RB Clinton Portis during Betts’ recovery.

Alexander was released by the Seahawks in the offseason and could not seem to latch onto an NFL team at all.  He had visited the Saints, Bengals and Lions before finally landing a job in Washington. This however bodes well for Alexander, as he worked with Redskins head coach Jim Zorn and running backs coach Stump Mitchell in Seattle.

Expect nothing great out of this washed up old vet.
