Redskins Sign Stoutmire to Secondary

The Redskins have signed veteran safety Omar Stoutmire, the team announced on Wednesday.

Stoutmire played for the Redskins in 2005, but moved on to the New Orleans Saints last season. He rejoins the Redskins as a 10-year NFL veteran and provides depth to the secondary.

Stoutmire is also a long-time veteran of NFC East football, having played with the New York Giants from 2000-04. He entered the league as a seventh-round draft choice of the Dallas Cowboys in 1997.

Overall, he has played in 133 NFL games, with 60 starts. He has seven interceptions and 418 tackles (329 solo) in his career.

Last season in New Orleans, Stoutmire started the year as a reserve safety, but ended up starting nine games. He logged 56 tackles (44 solo), two interceptions and five passes defended for a Saints team that advanced to the NFC Championship game.

In 2005 with the Redskins, Stoutmire appeared in 10 games, plus both playoff games, for the Redskins. He served as a reserve safety and special teams player. He finished with 10 tackles (nine solo) and 11 special teams tackles.

In the Redskins' 17-10 Wild Card win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Jan. 7, 2006, Stoutmire recorded four tackles (three solo), with one sack of QB Chris Simms on a safety blitz, and one pass defended.
