ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -Keenan McCardell signed with the Washington Redskins on Monday, adding depth to a team with only one healthy wideout who has caught a pass this year.
McCardell has 861 career catches with Cleveland, Jacksonville, Tampa Bay and San Diego. The two-time Pro Bowl selection was cut by the Chargers after last season and nearly signed with the Redskins in July, but opted instead for Houston because he wanted to play in his hometown. The Texans released him at the end of preseason.
McCardell, 37, has a Super Bowl ring from the Redskins. He was chosen by Washington in the 12th round of the 1991 draft and spent his rookie season on the injured reserve list while the Redskins won the NFL title.
Santana Moss and Antwaan Randle El are the only Redskins wideouts with a catch after three games. Moss strained a groin in the loss to the New York Giants and his status is uncertain for this week's game against Detroit.
Brandon Lloyd, who began the season as the No. 3 receiver, has been getting little playing time. James Thrash is primarily a special teams player, and Reche Caldwell has yet to appear in a game after being signed following the season opener.
To make room for McCardell, the Redskins released safety Omar Stoutmire.
