Word is that the Redskins are bringing him in for a workout tomorrow and if all goes well, he will sign with the team.
I've always been curious what, if anything, Shaun Alexander had left. If he is fully healed, maybe he can spell Portis a bit while Betts is recovering from his injury. There's no way he can get back to his old form. Worth a shot I think. Another veteran in the locker room with playoff experience doesn't hurt. Maybe he can hang out with Jason Taylor when he feels like an outsider.
He already knows the system from Seattle so there wouldn't be much adjustment. It's a cool idea if anything.
