Fauria to 'Skins
The Washington Redskins announced that they have signed tight end Christian Fauria to a contract. Terms were undisclosed.
Fauria served as the Patriots' third tight end in 2005. He spent the last four seasons with the club, never missing a game. The Redskins pounced on him quickly after losing Robert Royal to the Bills on the first day of free agency.
Fauria is the second Patriots player to sign with another team on Sunday, following receiver Andre' Davis (Bills).
Fauria had eight catches for 57 yards in 2005, both career lows. But part of that was the fact he was playing behind Daniel Graham and Benjamin Watson.
The Patriots still have Graham and Watson under contract for 2006. There are no other tight ends currently on the roster.
