Earlier this week people were reporting that Eddie Royal had signed with the Redskins but last night he officially signed with the San Diego Chargers. Royal will get 13.5 Milli in the deal.
This could potentially be good news for Santana Moss who would have been all but gone had the Skins signed Royal. The team may still look to replace Moss who is (insert some really old age here) years old but I'm not sure if anyone on the roster, mainly Hankerson, would be a better option at WR at this point.
My favorite player Brandon Banks is also involved in this situation as Royal was a punt returner. However the Skins may replace him anyways. A guy like Josh Morgan has returned punts before, and they could throw any WR out there to return kicks. However, with Royal out of the picture Banks can breath a very small bit easier.
