Skins Cut Michael Bates

With 10 pro years under his belt, Michael Bates only played one season with the Redskins. Bates returned 49 kickoffs during the 2001 season.

Bates started his career with the Seattle Seahawks in 1993. He spent 2 seasons there before moving on to Cleveland and then Carolina where he excelled, but things slowed down for Bates when Washington picked him up in 2001. Bates never regained the form he had in Carolina. Check back later for more in depth information from John Keim.
