Redskins Re-Sign Safety Terrell
Apr. 23, 2003
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) _ Safety David Terrell re-signed with the Washington Redskins on Tuesday.
Terrell, a restricted free agent, has been the starting free safety for two years, but he might have to settle for backup duty next season. The Redskins signed Matt Bowen from Green Bay as a possible starter, and the safety position is also expected to be a priority in this weekend's draft.
Terrell, 27, was a seventh-round draft pick in 1998, but he didn't earn a roster spot until 2000. He and cornerback Champ Bailey are the only Redskins defenders to start all 16 games over the past two seasons.
