    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.

Looks like the Steelers lost their best QB.

I suspect Ben "28-4" Roethlisberger (of the world champion Pittsburgh Steelers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) will be perfectly fine without the Steelers' #2.5 receiver.

I love El to death and I'm happy he hit the jackpot, but I don't understand Washington signing him to that contract when you've got Moss and just traded for Brandon Lloyd. Well, I know why Washington signed him to that contract, but you know, that's a lot to invest in a slot receiver/punt returner/gadget passer. Or maybe they signed him to be their QUARTERBACK haha seriously folks he threw a touchdown in the Super Bowl.

Nevertheless, I hope Antwaan catches 100 balls next year. May his passer rating forever be real high.

Also, according to http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/transactions , we signed Adam Archuleta from the Rams.

Edit:

There is now a write-up about it on ESPN.com

I wouldnt brag about signing Archuletta, He is routinely out of place and lost on defense, and is way to reckless with his body.


But, he bangs some Playmate who says he's so good she cries after sex, so I guess he has that going for him.

It doesn't make a ton of sense and it gives the Redskins some of the smallest receivers in the game. Lloyd is the biggest at about 6 feet tall. Randel El, Moss and Patten are re-enacting the Smurfs!
