Redskins re-sign LB Rocky McIntosh

Various sources are reporting (and have confirmed) that the Redskins have resigned Inside Linebacker Rocky McIntosh to a one-year deal, as of yesterday evening.

McIntosh, the Redskins top draft selection in the 2006 draft, started at inside linebacker next to London Fletcher last season. He had 110 tackles and two sacks in 2010, but his return was questionable due to being somewhat of a misfit in the team’s new 3-4 defense.

It’s believed that McIntosh will compete with Perry Riley, the team’s 4th round draft pick from 2010, for the starting linebacker position next to Fletcher. McIntosh’s abilities on Special Teams is also likely a reason why he was brought back.

The interesting wrinkle in all of this, however, is the potential signing of inside linebacker Lofa Tatupu, formerly of the Seattle Seahawks. It’s believed that Tatupu was in the Washington DC area yesterday evening, although there’s no word on whether any offer has been made (or any financial parameters, for that matter).
