The contract that Stuart Schweigert signed with the Washington Redskins was a one-year deal.

From David Elfin at the Washington Times:

The Washington Redskins signed former Oakland Raiders free safety Stuart Schweigert to a one-year deal yesterday. The 26-year-old Schweigert, who will receive a bonus if he makes the team according to a team source, started 42 games for the Raiders over four seasons.

Several other teams were interested in landing the fifth-year player out of Purdue including Atlanta, Denver, St. Louis and Tennessee, according to Elfin’s story.

The veteran minimum for a fifth-year layer is $605,000 and I’ll take a stab at his roster bonus being in the neighborhood of $100,000. I will pass along contract details when they become available.

In his Times report on Monday’s OTA’s, Elfin had a slightly different take on the participation of Rocky McIntosh in practice. Yesterday in his blog, he said that McIntosh was lined up at his weakside linebacker spot. Today in the paper edition of the paper he said that the is “getting close to returning to full-time duty.” Still, quite an optimistic outlook for McIntosh.
