Rich Tandler just sent out a tweet wondering if this means the 'Skins could be setting up to cut Clinton Portis.
My thoughts are that it is just another back in the fold. Parker has great straightline speed and is a different back than both Larry Johnson and Portis.
Any way you look at it, I don't believe it's huge news. None of these three fit into the Redskins plans two or three years down the road and they are preparing for the future right now.
More on the signing later.
