Redskins Sign Fitch, Matua; Release Mapu, Brown

The Redskins made some roster moves today, signing defensive tackle Zarnell Fitch and guard Fred Matua, and waiving defensive end J.T. Mapu and guard Kerry Brown.  Fitch spent last season on the Baltimore Ravens’ practice squad. He was on the Ravens’ active roster for two games but did not play.  Matua was on the Cleveland Browns’ 53-man roster for the final 10 weeks of the 2006 season, but did not play in a game.  Mapu was signed by the Redskins on Tuesday after the team lost defensive ends Phillip Daniels and Alex Buzbee to season-ending injuries Sunday. He had previously been released by the team on June 24th.  Brown strained his shoulder Friday and had been projected to be out one to two weeks.

    Man, I don’t know. Sounds like a bunch of mediocre guys to me. But who knows, maybe they can fill a role and do the thing, you know? I’m thinking we’ll go 10-6 this season and get into the playoffs, what do you think?

    Hey this is a comment on Fred Matua, hey my name is Lisa Matua and I was wondering if we were somehow related, if you are a Cook Islander then that makes two of us but if you’re not, then thats fine, but I still want to know how you came to have that surname coz that surmane is so rare.Hope to hear from you soon. Have a nice day
