Washington Redskins sign Randle El

Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder has done it again, overpaying for yet another free-agent player. The Redskins just signed former Steelers wide receiver Antwaan Randle El to a seven-year contract worth up to $31 million (with $11.5 million in guaranteed money). The Chicago Bears were reportedly offering Randle El a six-year deal worth $18 million with an $8 million signing bonus, a much more sensible offer.

No doubt Pittsburgh will miss Randle El's punt return skills and his ability to pass the ball on trick plays, but from a receiving standpoint the Steelers won't be losing much. Expect Pittsburgh to draft a wide receiver with one of its first-day draft choices.
