Linebacker Trotter Signs With Redskins
Two-time all-pro linebacker Jeremiah Trotter, released two weeks ago by the Philadelphia Eagles, agreed to a seven-year, $36-million contract with the Washington Redskins.
Trotter, who will receive a $7-million signing bonus, completes an all-pro linebacking corps for the Redskins. LaVar Arrington, Jessie Armstead and Trotter all played in the Pro Bowl last season.

The Buffalo Bills’ chances of trading for New England quarterback Drew Bledsoe are diminishing.
“I still don’t have the sense that they really want to do this, particularly with us,” Bill President Tom Donahoe told a Buffalo radio station.
