McIntosh finally signs 1-year deal with Redskins

Linebacker Rocky McIntosh has finally signed his one-year

contract with the Washington Redskins, barely beating an NFL

deadline.

The Redskins said Monday that McIntosh had signed his $1.759

million tender. The team could have reduced the offer if the

restricted free agent had not signed it by Tuesday.

McIntosh is unhappy that the lack of new collective bargaining

agreement kept him from becoming an unrestricted free agent this

offseason. He was hoping to get a multiyear deal, but the Redskins

offered him only the one-year tender.

McIntosh skipped the team’s first voluntary minicamp to express

his discontent, but he attended the second minicamp.

The Redskins also cut guard Paul Fanaika and kicker Justin

Medlock.
