The Redskins have reportedly come to terms with CB Fred Smoot.
Smoot experienced his share of off-field troubles and on-field inconsistency in Minnesota, but now returns to the team where he made his mark. At this point, with Shawn Springs still on the roster, Smoot is scheduled to play the nickel, but that could change if Springs is traded to Detroit or released after June 1. Terms of Smoot's deal are coming.

Most useless starting cornerback ever to strap on cleats.

At least he's good for one thing, now Panther fans use the term "Smooted" for any receiver steve smith blows up. Like for example "Chris McAllister got smooted today" because of the tanning smoot received when minnesota came to town in 05.

Oh Gosh someone shoot me, they just said on ESPN 5 years 25 million, hopefully that was just an ESPN error getting his contract confused with London Fletcher.

No doubt Fred Smoot could get it together back in D.C. and return to old form but he needed a 1 year deal to prove that not a long term deal.

Everyone is overpaying this FA period, so that is expected. I think its a good fit though. Smoot had his best years in WAS and can hopefully ressurect his career here. The Skins had a need at CB and they needed to adress it in FA b/c they have so few draft picks.

I really wish people would stop looking at the figure and saying it's a lot of money. Springs is likely to be cut so he isn't going to be a nickel back, and he probably won't see most of that money unless he plays well. If he plays bad he can be cut.

I wanted smoot for a 1 year deal and the vet min not for all that money. Plus we would sign another corner if we trade or cut springs so i still think he would be a nickel.

This is awesome. A little something to cheer me up after the Cowboys paid Davis 50 mil.

Or the "tanning" Smith received when Newman came to town in '05 and '06.

This cheers up alittle after dallas now overpaid two O-linemen. I know we needed help but wow.

It's Snyder so not likely.

Smoot was actually pretty solid this past year, despite losing his starting job to the rook. I think he will be pretty good back in Washington.

I'm surprised the Redskins had to pay Smoot to play for them.

Or not. Smoot was a joke this season.

I'm sure Smoot was fine in Washington, but he was absolutely terrible here. He didn't fit in our man scheme, and he didn't fit in our cover 2.

If Smoot was bad this year, then Winfield was awful.

It was Winfield who gave up almost 200 yards to Donald Driver. It was Winfield who got exposed by Tom Brady in the zone defense.

Vikings fans love to play the scapegoat game. Smoot was not nearly as bad as MN fans would like to think.
