Skins Make Some Moves to Fill 2 Problem areas

Thanks to dr Wnc for the comment regarding the Skins new signings. Redskins.com just released a press release announcing the addition of kicker,  Dave Rayner, and RB/Kick-returner, Dominique Dorsey. Rayner does not have impressive stats, in fact, they are god awful, but I guess everything is worth a shot. He was originally drafted by the Colts in the 6th round, so it's reassuring to see that the Skins aren't the only team to draft bust kickers early.

As for Dominique Dorsey, the kid looks to have some natural abilities. A couple of facts are that he: is 5'7" (165 lbs), graduated from UNLV, and was a CFL All-Star. His full profile/stats are available here. Check out this clip of Dorsey doing his best Ed Reed impersonation. 

It is not encouraging to see that we're looking at a kicker that has been on 5 teams in 4 years. Man, if we had just kept David Akers, we could have avoided a decade of these shenanigans. Rayner's career kicking stats above 40 yards are down-right dreadful (14-24). Would you want this guy attempting a game-winning field goal?

Dorsey, on the other hand, looks promising. It is obvious the Skins have problems accumulating long rushes, especially for touchdowns, so Dominque I expect will compete for Rock's positions of 3rd back and kick-off returner.
