And so it begins

According to several sources, wide receiver Antwaan Randle El signed a 6-year $31 million deal with the Washington Redskins after spurning a 6-year $18-million offer from the Chicago Bears that included an $8 million signing bonus.

Randle El's deal with Washington includes up to $11.5 million in bonus money, but he joins a crowded Redskins' receiving corps. Washington just traded for San Francisco's Brandon Lloyd on Saturday and already has Santana Moss and David Patten on the roster.

Defensive end Kimo von Oelhoffen visited the New York Jets over the weekend, but the Steelers will still likely bring the veteran back.

Cincinnati has shown interest in Tommy Maddox, although I'm not sure why.

And Chukky Okobi has reportedly restructured his contract, though that is unconfirmed at this point.

The only free agent the Steelers have re-signed thus far is linebacker Clint Kreiwaldt.
