Safety Vernon Fox, whose inadequacies as the fill-in starter late in 2006, prompted the Redskins to draft LaRon Landry sixth overall in 2007, has re-signed with Denver.

Fox, a career special-teamer, was thrust into the lineup when the over-the-hill Troy Vincent got hurt in November 2006. Vincent, who had been signed off the street that season, was only playing next to Sean Taylor because Adam Archuleta, on whom the Redskins foolishly showered millions while letting Ryan Clark sign with Pittsburgh, bombed worse than “Ishtar.”

Fox, 30 stuck as a backup to rookie Landry in 2007 before moving on to Denver last year. He had been out of the league since being cut by the Broncos this summer.
