Alexander passes test; Skins to add him

Posted on: October 14, 2008 12:56 pm
 
My sources in Washington tell me that running back Shaun Alexander looked good in this morning's workout and, if he passes the physical, will be signed by the club. Alexander showed up in good shape and did enough that club officials recommended adding him. He is expected to be paid the league minimum, and will serve as a backup to Clinton Portis -- in effect, taking the spot of Ladell Betts, who will be out 3-4 weeks.

I had similar sentiments exactly. This is a great pickup for the Redskins. Shaun Alexander provides an excellent 1-2 punch with Portis and at a cut rate price. Excellent move.

Can't wait to see him take over once Portis has his annual injury.
