Redskins Get Moore Safety Help; Sign Tyrone Carter - Former Steeler

Update 2: Haslett says Doughty and Horton will compete at free safety. Newly-signed Tyrone Carter will play strong safety (via @RedskinsInsider). Obviously, he'll back up Landry at SS.

Update: LB Chris Draft was released.

The Redskins announced Reed Doughty will start at Free Safety versus the Jets with Kareem Moore going down, but that didn't stop them from adding 10-year veteran, and former Steeler, Tyrone Carter. Tyrone saw a lot of action with Polamalu's injury last year racking up an AFC Defensive Player of the Week Award with his 2 INT performance versus the Broncos. His familiarity with the 3-4 defense will help immensely. Tyrone is listed as 5'9, 195lbs and was an unrestricted free agent after last season. The Vikings drafted him in the 4th round of the 2000 draft out of Minnesota. This looks to be a good addition given his experience all things considered. I can't help but feel sorry for Kareem who again suffered an injury in pre-season despite making great progress.
