Receiver Roulette Brings Farris Back


Byline: David Elfin, THE WASHINGTON TIMES

The failure of any receiver besides Santana Moss to produce during Washington's 2005 season prompted the Redskins to splurge the ensuing offseason on wideouts Antwaan Randle El and Brandon Lloyd.

But now the Redskins have re-signed one of those washed-out wideouts, Jimmy Farris, to replace the injured Lloyd on the roster. Lloyd broke his collarbone during Wednesday's practice and was placed on season-ending injured reserve yesterday.

Farris, 29, caught one pass for 18 yards while playing mostly on special teams in four games in 2005. Lloyd wasn't much more effective with 25 catches for 379 yards in 23 games.

Farris said it didn't take him long to re-establish the chemistry he had with quarterback Jason Campbell. Both were on the scout team in 2005 and 2006 before Farris was cut during the latter summer.

McCardell has contributed eight catches, 102 yards and a touchdown in limited duty but played 40 snaps last week, only 16 fewer than starter Antwaan Randle El, who has a tender hamstring. …
