Redskins Historian: Duckett Joins ‘Skins

(Click here for more about the Redskins’ signing of T.J. Duckett)

On Aug. 23, 2006, the Redskins traded a 3rd-round draft pick in a deal that landed Falcons running back T.J. Duckett, a former 1st-round selection.

Star running back Clinton Portis had dislocated a shoulder, so the Redskins felt the urge to acquire another quality runner. But in a huge mystery, the 254-pound Duckett was barely used in 2006, his only year in D.C. He rushed for 132 yards, while teammate Ladell Betts ran for more than 1,000.

In addition, the front-office could have spent virtually nothing to sign free agent Stephen Davis, one of the top rushers in Redskins history.

Instead, Davis signed with St. Louis and scored a TD in its win over Washington.

    Hi there! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how
    to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird
    when browsing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.

    If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!
