Running back Ki-Jana Carter will not be joining the Dolphins after all.<p>

The No. 1 overall pick in the 1995 draft has signed a one-year contract with the Washington Redskins, a week after working out with the Dolphins and taking a physical.

Carter's career has been sidetracked by knee problems ever since he arrived in the NFL after a stellar career at Penn State.

Coach Dave Wannstedt said it made sense to give Carter a look, but the truth is the Dolphins never were that close to signing him to a contract. The Dolphins already have three players behind starter Lamar Smith who have shown good things this summer — J.J. Johnson, Autry Denson and rookie Travis Minor.
