HailtotheChief Posted March 15, 2006 Report Share Posted March 15, 2006 (edited) Antwaan Randle El (born August 17, 1979 in Riverdale, Illinois) is the newest wide receiver and punt returner for the Washington Redskins. A quarterback in college, he is also occasionally called on to pass on trick plays, most notably in Super Bowl XL in which he threw a pass for a touchdown. He is considered to be the most statistically productive dual-threat quarterback to ever play college football. He was drafted in the second round of the NFL Draft in 2002 by the Pittsburgh Steelers. On March 12, 2006, he signed a seven-year, $31 million deal to play for the Washington Redskins. Said Gibbs: "We have a player here who can do a lot of things. He can run, he can throw and he can run back punts and kickoffs. He's kind of an unusual person. We spent some time showing him offensively what we think he'll be doing for us. We're all excited about that." "The Redskins know what it takes to win," said Randle El, explaining why he chose Washington over other suitors, such as Pittsburgh and Chicago. "They know about putting the right coaches and players together in the right situations. The addition of Randle El gives Washington a dangerous receiving corps. I cannot wait for next season Edited March 15, 2006 by HailtotheChief Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
