'Skins sign Stoutmire; Archuleta trade delayed

ASHBURN, Va. (March 21, 2007) -- With safety Adam Archuleta on the way out, the Washington Redskins signed free agent Omar Stoutmire to take his place.

Stoutmire, a 10-year veteran, played for the Redskins in 2005 and spent last season with New Orleans. He joins Vernon Fox and Reed Doughty as the safeties expected to compete for playing time behind starters Sean Taylor and Pierson Prioleau.

Stoutmire has also played with Dallas, the New York Jets and New York Giants.

The Redskins agreed Tuesday night to trade the disgruntled Archuleta to Chicago for a sixth-round draft pick. The teams were expected to complete the trade Wednesday, but the announcement was delayed until Thursday while the Bears arranged for Archuleta take a physical.
