'Skins sign a 10-year veteran, cut an 11-year veteran

The Redskins have made a couple of moves involving grizzled veterans, signing one and cutting one.

In is safety Tyrone Carter; out is linebacker Chris Draft.

Draft signed with the Redskins in May. Carter has played with the Steelers since 2004, winning two Super Bowl titles. He started 12 games in 2009, the most ever started in any year during his entire career.

The Redskins also made official the arrival of fullback Carey Davis, a veteran who joined the league in 2004.

I would have thought for sure that 2009 would have been Carter's last in the league.

News on Davis makes me wonder - why didn't the Steelers bring him back to compete with Summers?

Interesting moves by the 'Skins. They got absolutely pounded by the Ravens this last weekend so maybe they need some different looks.

Heck, the 'Skins have been so bad over the years maybe they want someone in the locker room that has actually won something??

They signed Carter to make Willie Parker look fast.

Carey Davis was my wife's favorite player. She loved his smile. The highlight of our trip to training camp two years ago was meeting him and him smiling at her.

They lost their FB, name escapes me, but giant dude.

Landry also had a tweek in the game, so Carter may be filling in for a few weeks.
The Skins are a SLOW team, so these two will look normal there.
