NFL Free Agency: Redskins Re-Sign LB Rocky McIntosh, DB Reed Doughty

The Washington Redskins continue to hang on to many of their free agents, inking linebacker Rocky McIntosh and safety Reed Doughty to contract, according to reports. The news about McIntosh was actually broken by fellow Redskins linebacker Robert Henson, while the news about Doughty was broken by John Keim of the Washington Examiner.

The news that the team has kept McIntosh is somewhat surprising, because previous reports indicated that the Redskins planned on letting McIntosh go and handing the inside linebacker job to Perry Riley. Instead, it looks like McIntosh will be brought back for even more competition at the position.

Doughty, meanwhile, will get a three-year deal to contribute mostly on special teams now that O.J. Atogwe has been signed. He started a handful of games last season, but should have a reduced role in 2011.
