Schmitt ‘hung it up’

Pete Schmitt’s return to Redskin Park didn’t last very long. The fullback from Wisconsin-Whitewater, who signed with the Redskins as an undrafted free agent last summer but didn’t make the team, spent two days in camp before leaving on his own, Zorn said.

“[Schmitt] decided to leave. He hung it up,” Zorn said. “He stepped aside and said, ‘Maybe this is not for me.’”

To fill Schmitt’s place on the roster, the Redskins added former Virginia Tech safety Justin Hamilton. The 2006 seventh-round pick had 15 tackles as a rookie for the Cleveland Browns, but the team cut him Sept. 1, 2007, and he didn’t catch on with another team.
