ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- A person familiar with the deal says the Washington Redskins have agreed to a one-year contract with free agent receiver Brandon Stokley.
The 35-year-old Stokley becomes the fourth wideout age 30 or older to reach a deal with the Redskins in 24 hours. The team has also agreed to terms to sign Donte' Stallworth and re-sign Santana Moss. Plus, it traded for Jabar Gaffney.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because free agent contracts can't be signed until Friday under terms imposed at the end of the NFL lockout.
Stokley has played for four teams over 12 NFL seasons. He had 31 catches for 354 yards last year with the Seattle Seahawks.
