Punter Derrick Frost accepted a one-year minimum contract offer from the Washington Redskins and will have a salary of $605,000 next season, a league source said yesterday. The Redskins attempted to re-sign Frost before free agency began but he decided to test the market, hoping to receive a more lucrative offer.

Frost, who completed his third season with Washington, ultimately decided to return to the Redskins, taking a deal the team held firm on for weeks. Frost had net and overall averages of 36.4 yards and 41 yards, respectively, on 75 punts last season. On 23 punts, Frost pinned opponents inside the 20-yard line.

Frost is the third Redskins free agent to reach an agreement with the team. Backup quarterback Todd Collins and return specialist Rock Cartwright also accepted the Redskins' offers.
