Skins Sign Randle El!!!!!! Bad Choice - March 13, 2006, 09:11 AM

Randle El had a career-low 35 receptions for the Super Bowl champion Steelers in 2005 but in four seasons has established himself as one of the game's most versatile performers. While he is no doubt more famous for his 43-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XL than any of his 162 career catches or five return touchdowns, the Redskins signed him to be their No. 2 receiver, opposite Moss. Washington apparently plans to employ a lot of three-receiver looks next season, with former Rams and Chiefs offensive coordinator Al Saunders calling the plays.
Randle El made a bit of a tough call Saturday, rejecting a six-year, $18 million (including $8 million to sign) to play for the Bears in his native Illinois.
Besides the bigger contract, what sold Randle El on the Redskins was the prospect of playing under a proven coordinator in Saunders, with a veteran quarterback in Mark Brunell, and the promise of a key role in Washington's retooled offense. Randle El, remember, played quarterback at Indiana, and he longs to handle the ball more than he did in Pittsburgh's run-oriented scheme.
Two years ago, Snyder went retro when he lured Hall of Fame coach Joe Gibbs out of retirement. Now Snyder has brought the Smurfs back. Randle El measures 5 feet 10 inches and 192 pounds. Moss is 5-10, 185; Patten 5-10, 190; and Lloyd 6 feet, 184.
The Redskins also signed tight end Christian Fauria on Sunday.
Fauria will replace tight end Robert Royal, who signed as a free agent Saturday with Buffalo. Fauria spent the last four years with New England, winning two Super Bowl rings. He started 10 of 16 games last year, catching eight passes for 57 yards and two touchdowns.

The Redskins were also in discussions with linebacker Andre Carter, safety Adam Archuleta and quarterback Todd Collins. All visited Redskins Park over the weekend.

WTF!! Dan

this is horrible news for the Steelers, knew it was coming though

good news for the skins, they can open up their passing game now, if they can get their quarterback to see straight

Skins are looking to have a respectable receiver core this year. And we now have a new strong safety since we signed Archuletta. We've also got a new tight end since we signed New England's Fauria and let go of Royal. I get the feeling though that that means more passing opportunities and lining up as TE for Cooley and Fauria being used as a blocking TE.

I wish we had brought back McCants though in the name of having a large blocking receiver again. Oh well. Since we signed Al Saunders you know we'll be showing a lot of 3 receiver formations. We have to have Randle El and Lloyd out there because no one is going to care about Thrash or Jacobs. Although, what's the word on Patten? Are we going to have four receivers this year? Is this a paranoid response to losing our #2 and #3 receivers last year and scraping the barrel in order to have passing game?
