TWT FIVE: BEST REDSKINS ‘SPLASH’ SIGNINGS

1. London Fletcher (2007): Stepped in at middle linebacker, hasn’t missed a game in two years and has become heartbeat of defense.

2. Casey Rabach (2006): Not a publicized signing, but he has been more than adequate in three years as the center.

3. Marcus Washington (2004): He was released last week, but he provided the Redskins with four solid years at strongside linebacker before breaking down last year.

4. Shawn Springs (2004): Another part of a good 2004 class, he has been a consistent cover cornerback, though injuries have plagued him.

5. Adam Archuleta (2006): Just kidding. One of the biggest mistakes in the history of free agency, ol’ Archie did provide plenty of good theater.
