ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins have added another veteran running back to their roster, agreeing to terms with Willie Parker on a one-year deal.
Parker agreed Friday to a contract that could be worth as much as $3.1 million with incentives.
The Redskins already have 28-year-old Clinton Portis returning, and they recently signed 30-year-old Larry Johnson to a three-year, incentive-laden deal.
Parker's agent, Douglas Hendrickson, said the Redskins have told his client that "it's an open competition for the starting job."
Parker, 29, played six seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, winning two Super Bowl rings. He has three 1,200-yard seasons, but he ran for just 389 yards last year as a backup.
