Redskins Sign S Tyrone Carter

The Washington Redskins have signed veteran safety Tyrone Carter, reports Brad Biggs of the National Football Post.

A fourth-round pick (118th overall) of the Minnesota Vikings out of the University of Minnesota in 2000, Carter (5-9, 195) has started 53 of 151 games during a 10-year career with the Vikings, New York Jets (2003), and Pittsburgh Steelers, where he's picked up a pair of Super Bowl rings over the last six seasons.

Carter has totaled 450 tackles, 5.5 quarterback sacks, 9 interceptions and 27 passes defensed, and will add a veteran presence to the back-end of a secondary that lost Kareem Moore for up to six weeks with a sprained MCL.
