Redskins Making The Obvious Choice

The Redskins announced the signing of former Cowboys running back Tashard Choice.  Choice was released from the Cowboys on Friday, and signed by the arch-rival Washington Redskins this afternoon.

Choice (5-10, 212) was originally drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the fourth round (122nd overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft and spent his entire career with Dallas before being released on Oct. 28, 2011. Choice has 1,139 yards rushing on 250 attempts (4.6 avg.) and eight rushing touchdowns in 54 games. He has also caught 64 passes for 497 yards and returned three kickoffs for 61 yards in his career.

Against the Redskins, for his career, Choice has 37 plays from scrimmage for 116 yards and a touchdown.  Looks like Rick ‘Doc’ Walker will need to perform another cleansing, like the one he performed on former Cowboy Stephen Bowen.

The best part about this signing, is that Choice is one of Bowen’s best friends.  Bowen was very excited this afternoon when news broke of the signing, and will certainly aid in the transition to Redskins Nation:

Choice himself, tweeted his goodbye to Cowboys fans last week:

As far as social media is concerned, Choice will now need to update his Twitter (@tchoice23) background and information, ASAP.  Also, he’s launching his very own website, Tashard Choice #23 Official Website, in 5 days, 1 hour, 22 minutes, and 17 seconds…16…15…14…

While it may seem strange to welcome a Cowboy in the middle of the season, Choice has a chance to spark the Redskins running game, that has struggled in the game-and-a-half since Tim Hightower’s season ended.

Plus, he’s a heckuva locker room videographer:

  1. Our running game is fine with our starting offensive line. Since that no longer is an option, we need to use the screen pass much more effectively IMO.
