Redskins Sign Robinson

Via their Twitter page this morning, the Washington Redskins announced the signing of inside linebacker and 2012 fourth round draft pick Keenan Robinson.

Robinson was a standout linebacker for the University of Texas. His junior year for the Longhorns was by far his best. He racked up 101 total tackles with two sacks, two forced fumbles, and two interceptions.

Robinson has experience playing both inside and outside linebacker. However, the Redskins drafted him with the idea of developing him to back up London Fletcher and Perry Riley at inside linebacker.

While terms of the deal are not known, fourth round draft picks of last years draft signed four-year deals worth around $2 million.

The Redskins now only have three draft picks left to sign. First round pick Robert Griffin III headlines the group followed by Josh LeRibeus and Kirk Cousins.
