Out At Redskins Park: Darrion Scott Joins Team

The Washington Redskins announced today that they have signed free agent defensive end Darrion Scott.

Most recently, Scott, 28, played for the UFL’s Florida Tuskers under current Redskins Defensive Coordinator Jim Haslett, who was the team’s head coach. Scott (6-3, 289) has played four seasons (2004-07) in the NFL, all with Minnesota, which selected him in the third round of the 2004 NFL Draft out of Ohio State.

From 2005-06, Scott played in the 32 games, with 28 starts, and registered 9.5 sacks, including a team-high 5.5 in 2006.

As a collegian, Scott was a three-year starter for the Buckeyes and a first-team All-Big Ten selection in 2002 as Ohio State captured the national championship.

Scott, (wait for it, wait for it) was arrested for the strangulation of his two year old son by putting a plastic dry cleaning bag over his son's head while being the Boogeyman.

Boogeyman indeed.

Insert WTF? here.

Scott received a three-game suspension for the 2008 season for violations of the league's conduct policy (What? Strangulation violates League policy?), and plead guilty to a gross misdemeanor in a case involving child endangerment. He faced two felony charges for his antics but accepted the lesser plea of child endangerment.

Let's see - be known as a felon, or have a child endangerment charge. Felony, or child endangerment. Gee, judge, I don't want to have a felony charge, so I'll take the child endangerment charge for 500.

So, now, going into the 2010 Season the Redskins have a defensive tackle headstomper, and a plastic-bag-over-ya head defensive end.
