The Redskins have signed former Colts linebacker Chris Carter as a free agent, the team announced.
Carter, a 2011 fifth-round pick of the Steelers, will be joining his fifth NFL team. After playing for three years in Pittsburgh he has been with the Bengals and Ravens and he did two stints with the Colts.

Carter has been a reserve and special teams performer during his six NFL seasons. He has just four starts and none since 2013.
He has played on the outside when he has played on defense although at 245 lb. he also could play on the inside. But if he makes the roster it’s doubtful that he will see much action on defense and will be a special teams contributor as much as anything.

Back in February, fans named the Redskins the third-most attractive team in the NFL. On top of that, Will Compton was tabbed the league's fifth-best looking player overall (in fact, he beat out Tom Brady, and everyone knows beating out Tom Brady in anything is always notable).
A side effect of being revered for your good looks, though, is that other people will sometimes get jealous of them. Take Compton's teammate, Su'a Cravens, for example.
According to some tweets from Cravens, the two Washington defenders were casually eating dinner on Wednesday night, but kept getting interrupted. The reason for the interruptions?
Apparently, they were happening because Compton is just really, really, really, ridiculously good looking.

Hopefully Compton picked up the tab, at least.
When most 30-year-olds earn a promotion, they'll receive a decent bump in compensation. Then, they'll use some of that bonus on that new set of golf clubs they've been eyeing, or perhaps on a fresh couch for the living room.
Sean McVay isn't one of those 30-year-olds.
The Rams head coach and former Redskins offensive coordinator bypassed those smaller purchases and has instead opted to recently buy a giant house in California. How much did McVay drop on the property? Oh, just $2.71 million. That's all.
The home, located in Encino, has six bedrooms, six bathrooms and checks in at more than 4,600 square feet. And yes, of course, it has a pool.

The Internet these days is full of hot takes. Here's a cooler, more reasonable one: McVay's house is pretty nice.
