Default Willie Parker now a Redskin

Filed to ESPN: Redskins reached agreement on a one-year deal with RB Willie Parker. Deal has a maximum value of $3.1 million.

Schefter twitter

Good for him - have fun Willie.

Willie Parker, Larry Johnson and Clinton Portis - in the olde days that would've been a helluva backfield

Funny that he basically left the Steelers because he didn't want to play a secondary role....and will now play a secondary role on a much lesser team.

Thanks for all the hard work WP...silly decision though IMO.

And to think, he said he wanted to be a starter and not work in a committee.

Now he's likely to play in a committee.

Oh well, best of luck Willie.

The good news is he's cashing in. He's earned that.

Another bit of good news is it's a one-year contract so he can do go somewhere else in 2011.

Tsk tsk tsk I can see some jealousy coming from us fans. The whole talk about remaining a starter and blah blah blah was just to keep up his market value and Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen have decided to take a shot with him. And it is Mike Shanahan the guy who can make anyone in the backfield hell even an offensive lineman run for 1000 yards with his scheme. Now I understamd willie did not do well with out zone scheme, but Zierlein was a shitty O line coach having north south O linemen running left and right. My best of wishes to willie parker, hopefully he listens to shanahans coaching and improves his market value for next season.

bit of a loss, but will be interesting to see how he does with the Skins offense

a lesser O-Line, but an O-Line depsite their poor play of late can still open running lanes when needed, for some reason I see another fumble filled season for WP

good luck to him though

Portis has too much guaranteed money, so he is going to have to beat out Larry Johnson or he will be cut from his incentive laden contract.
