The Washington Redskins have re-signed safety Reed Doughty, providing themselves an insurance policy in case strong safety LaRon Landry remains sidelined indefinitely.
Doughty announced on his twitter account Wednesday that he and the team had agreed to a deal.
“On my way to the airport. Back to the B&G. Excited to be back,” Doughty tweeted.
Doughty’s agent, Dave Butz, didn’t immediately respond to an inquiry seeking the terms of the deal. Doughty’s deal is for three years, but the dollar amount was not available Wednesday evening..
A sixth-year pro out of Northern Colorado, Doughty started nine games (seven at strong safety, two at free safety) last season and recorded a career-high 93 tackles. Landry missed nine games with a strained Achilles’ tendon that has yet to fully heal. He currently is on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) List.
With the signings of Doughty and defensive tackle Kedric Golston, the Redskins’ roster now is at 88 players, two below the league maximum for training camp.
