Ashburn, VA – The Washington Redskins announce today that they have signed free agent safety Omar Stoutmire.

Stoutmire (5-11, 205), had signed with the Redskins this past off-season but was released in the team’s final roster cut down on September 1.

Stoutmire then went on to play five seasons with the New York Giants before joining Washington for the 2005 season.

For his career, Stoutmire has played in 133 games and recorded 418 total tackles and seven interceptions. His best game with the Redskins during the 2005 season came in the team’s playoff victory in Tampa Bay where he recorded four tackles, one sack, and one pass defensed.
