I'm a little shocked. But I'm happy we get Fred back.

Well it also shows his commitment to the team and wanting to win, so as long as he stays healthy and has a productive year, he will most likely get his contract.

I can handle a year of Fred trying to earn a big contract. It's a low risk potentially very high reward move.

It's actually probably just him wanting to have the best QB situation possible out of the Bills, Jets and Redskins on his 1-year-prove-I'm-healthy contract so he can best show case his ability... the Bills actually offered him more money. He signed a 1-year deal now so he can sign a big long-term deal next year.

Glad to have him back and I'm glad it's on a one year prove it contract like others said. It's a win, win and it isn't going to kill our cap. Good move ShanAllen

that's really good to know, thanks billy. Good to know guys now think this is one of the best places for them to play because of Rg3 and they aren't just coming here to get paid

I like the fact it's a year if he can stay healthy and play some what solidly then it's fine if he fails again we can dump so.

Billy is right.

Think about it. Who would you rather have throwing to you?

Redskins QB - RG3 (or Cousins for a few games)??

or...

Bills QB - ???
Jets QB - ???

Smart move for Fred and really a no-brainer when you think about it.

The question is really, was he high and came to that conclusion or was he sober and had a moment of clarity that he will have a better season here in Washington than in the other 2 places.

A one year deal? This iis perfect. Fred is gonna ball out this season in hopes for a new contract and if he does prove his worth, we'll be in a much better position to sign him to a multi-year deal. Does anyone know the terms?
