The Washington Redskins continued with some early moves in what figures to be a busy offseason. On Monday, the team announced that defensive end Darrion Scott has been re-signed.
Scott was scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent. He would have been free to sign with other teams when free agency begins on March 13.
Monday’s move maintains some depth along the defensive line. Scott is a reserve defensive end. According to Pro Football Focus, he saw just 112 snaps during the 2011 season, mostly in pass rushing situations.
Minnesota drafted Scott in the third round of the 2004 NFL Draft. He played there until 2007. After that, he spent some time playing for the Florida Tuskers in the UFL, where he was coached by Jim Haslett. Washington signed Scott in April 2010, not too long after Haslett was hired as their defensive coordinator.
