Redskins add another defensive lineman

The Redskins continue to load up on veteran defensive linemen.

The team announced the signing of Darrion Scott Tuesday, adding him to a mix that already includes recent additions Adam Carriker, Howard Green,
Anthony Bryant, Maake Kemoeatu and Greg Peterson.

Let’s call this approach quantity over quality, which isn’t a bad idea when you are changing defensive schemes.

Scott hasn’t played in the NFL in two years.  He pleaded guilty to child endangerment in 2008.

    Are they serious? WTF??? This is one signing I totally disagree with. Not having played in 2 years…… I hope he is only being used as a tacking dummy. Especially not when you have other linemen out there that are more talented and don’t have a record of child abuse.

    When is Fat Al getting traded? Hmm…Washington loading up on D-Linemen, Houston loading up on TEs.. Nah nevermind.

    Scott’ll do just fine if the linemen on the other side of the ball are all two years old and let him put a plastic dry cleaning bag over their heads.

    Just keep him away from the plastic dry cleaning bags and he should be Ok

    Clearly a great pickup.
    A former Minnesota Vikings player admitted that putting a plastic dry cleaning bag over his 2-year-old son’s head was “stupid and reckless” and pleaded guilty Monday to child endangerment.
    Darrion Scott, 26, entered the plea on the day that jury selection was scheduled to begin for felony third-degree assault and domestic assault by strangulation following the April 28 incident at his Eden Prairie townhouse.
    According to the criminal complaint, the boy’s mother heard the child’s muffled cries and found Scott, 6 feet 3 inches and 290 pounds, holding the bag over the boy’s head. She said that the boy was on his back on the floor, his legs kicking, and that Scott was holding the bag tightly around the boy’s neck.
    In his statement, Scott, who was a defensive lineman for the Vikings, said he was attempting to entertain the boy, identified in court as L.D., by putting the bag on his own head while dancing and pretending to be the “boogeyman.”
    When the toddler became upset, Scott said he took the bag off his own head and placed it on his son’s head to show that it wouldn’t hurt him.
    When the boy became even more upset, Scott said he tried to take the bag off but it became hooked on his son’s chin. He claimed he was holding the struggling boy down to get the bag off when his mother entered the room.

  7. Katmanduu says: Apr 27, 2010 1:10 PM

    Isn’t this guy the douche that shook his infant son by his ankles or something to that extent?
    Nice going gerbil man Shanahan. Picking up where Danny Boy left off.

    The reason is pretty clear, they got him to babysit fat al….

  9. RIP__21 says: Apr 27, 2010 1:23 PM

    6’3 290 pounds.
    As Sgt Hartman would say, “I didnt know they stacked shit that high.”

    This is also the viking that held a lit cigarette lighter under the child’s ears to “discipline” him.
    His criminal brain was permanently damaged by marijuanna. He is facing suspension under the NFL’s substance abuse program for his marijuanna addiction problem.
    Why would the Redskins really want this criminal as a teammate?

  11. Branephood says: Apr 27, 2010 1:28 PM

    Is this guy someone that DeAngela had a “feeling” about that could help these bottom feeders win 12 games this year? Stay classy DC…

  12. ham1 says: Apr 27, 2010 1:36 PM

    All time low life. Maybe he’ll get his ass beat.

  13. jasncondit says: Apr 27, 2010 1:37 PM

    As for the child endangerment guy, Ocho Cinco’s response was “Child Please!”…lol

  14. DanRooney says: Apr 27, 2010 1:51 PM

    This guy tried to kill a child. Absolute scum. He should get traded to the Raiders so he can rot with Al Davis.

    Come on guys… who doesn’t use plastic bags and cigarette lighters to entertain their kids!? I, for one, use a plastic bag as a sock puppet. My kids call him “the Strangler” and they love to freak out and run around the house when I break him out. It’s cute!

  16. longestlegs says: Apr 27, 2010 1:51 PM

    John Henderson was a worse option? Jesus. First Roydell Williams, now this dude.

  19. BroncFanOr says: Apr 27, 2010 2:19 PM

    Didn’t you realize Shanahan thinks he can fix guys with these types of problems. Just look at his history.

  20. boysroll says: Apr 27, 2010 2:27 PM

    lmfao..now this 4skin org is bringing in all the crime riden playa’s. Great character pick up…. these team is made up of a bunch of thug a bad character players now. I predict 3-13 and last place.
    I doubt these bunch of thugs could beat the prison team from the longest yard..LMFAO!!!

    I’m surprised the Dallas felons didn’t sign this guy first! Jerry Jones must have been drunk or busy getting a facelift to miss this opportunity.

  22. smiley says: Apr 27, 2010 2:51 PM

    I hate this effin guy….I would love to put a bag over his effin head. Hail!!

  23. Veritas Amber says: Apr 27, 2010 2:57 PM

    great post

    C’mon guys, let’s just all admit it:
    At sometime in our life, we’ve all played the “Plastic bag boogeyman” game with our kids!
    And at some point in our lives we’ve all had sex with a sheep.
    C’mon, admit it! This is just common stuff that we all do!

  26. longestlegs says: Apr 27, 2010 3:40 PM

    Room for this dude and not TO?

  27. gurnblanston says: Apr 27, 2010 3:42 PM

    I’m all for giving a second chance to a guy, especially if he has already played for one of your coaches like Haslett in the minors. BUT – not this guy. NOT a child abuser. Come on, Mr. Allen, don’t go slumming and become indistinguishable from the Jerry Joneses in the league. Hail!

    This guy is pre-season only. They need more guys to tryout and play pre-season just like every team does. He wont make the final roster cuts we all know this. Well, unless your a moron like Boysroll or some other of the scared hating trolls.

    I can not believe a cowgurl fan has the audacity to speak of character. Every year you hear of at the very least 2 cowgurls past and present who are getting arrested for DUI, possession, cartheft, or some other crime that a pro football player should not be committing. This douche speaks of character. What does dallass know about character? Who have they had in the last ten years that represents character? Irvin? Lett? Glenn? Your team has had a reputation of thugs and low-lifes. Hell they used to hold position meetings in strip clubs. And you speak of character??? You are the dumbest SOB that ever posts on here and should be banned because you are stupid.

  32. Cowboys fans are backward Rednecks! says: Apr 28, 2010 8:01 PM

    Hey… boysroll… Cowpies suck! Go jump off the bandwagon… but wait until… it gets really, really high… then do yourself a favor!

  33. Cowboys fans are backward Rednecks! says: Apr 28, 2010 8:05 PM

    I agree with diehardskinsfan21… that the dumbest SOB ever (boysroll) should be banned, that’s 2 votes! Just make sure he can catch the short bus on the way home. We don’t want his mommy…(j. jones plastic surgeon) to come looking for him!!!!!!!
    LMFAO!!!!
    Hey boysroll if you didn’t get it, sorry…everyone here knows that you are a little slow! I’ll try not to use big, confusing words!

  34. Cowboys fans are backward Rednecks! says: Apr 29, 2010 1:00 PM

    Hey skins fans, if we all could take a couple moments to post a comment on how dumb boysroll is……. or got troll the cowboys blog and make a screen name and post outlandish, ignorant, comments on their blog would be great!
