Redskins Sign Nine Players to Futures Contracts

Posted Feb 23, 2010

The Redskins signed nine players to reserve/futures contracts, including running back Anthony Alridge who was on the team's roster and practice squad last year.

The Redskins signed nine players to reserve/futures contracts, including running back Anthony Alridge who spent time on the team’s roster last season.

Also signed were cornerback Doug Dutch and defensive lineman J.D. Skolnitsky, both a pair of local products. Dutch hails from Bowie, Md., and Skolnitsky is from Fairfax, Va.

All nine of the players signed spent time on the Redskins’ practice squad last season.

Here is the complete list of players signed to futures contracts:

REDSKINS SIGN 9 TO FUTURES CONTRACTS
Name Position NFL Exp. College
Anthony Alridge RB 2 Houston
Anthony Armstrong WR 1 West Texas A&M
Doug Dutch CB 1 Michigan
Antoine Holmes DT 1 North Carolina State
Clint Oldenburg OL 2 Colorado
James Robinson WR 1 Butler
J.D. Skolnitsky DL 1 James Madison
Lee Vickers TE 2 North Alabama
Darrel Young LB 1 Villanova

Reserve/futures contracts are contracts that are signed for the 2010 season, even though the upcoming season does not officially begin until March.

Only players who were not on any NFL team’s active roster when the 2009 season ended are eligible for reserve/futures contracts. If they were under contract, then they would remain so until March.

Players who were on NFL practice squads at the end of the 2009 season were eligible to sign with any team.

Here are thumbnail bios of each of the players signed:

Alridge (5-9, 175) originally was awarded to the Redskins off waivers from the Denver Broncos on Feb. 13 last year. He spent the 2009 offseason and training camp with the Redskins but was released on Sept. 5. He rejoined the Redskins’ roster on Sept. 22 and was inactive for three contests. He was later released by the team on Oct. 20, but re-signed to the team’s practice squad on Dec. 9 for the remainder of the season.

Armstrong (5-11, 183) signed with the Redskins’ practice squad on Oct. 21. He was with the Miami Dolphins during 2009 preseason. He spent the 2008 season on the Dolphins’ practice squad.

Vickers played in nine games with two starts with the Ravens in 2007, and totaled two receptions for four yards. He spent the 2009 offseason and training camp with the New York Giants prior being released on Sept. 2.
