Fourth round selection Keenan Robinson agrees to four year deal with Redskins

By Mark Pierce

Sign on the dotted line, brother.

Because of the CBA signed last year following the lockout, rookie draft picks are signing with teams at a record rate this year. There simply isn’t a lot to debate about. All rookie draft picks are signed to a four year deal with the option for a fifth year, if drafted in the first round.

 The latest signee for Washington is fourth round pick ( 119th overall ) Keenan Robinson from Texas. Robinson played weakside linebacker in the Texas 4-3, however he will be moved to the inside linebacker position in Washington’s defensive scheme.  

Perry Riley and London Fletcher are locks for the starter position, and free agent Jonathan Goff will likely be the first reserve off the bench at inside linebacker, leaving the rookie to fight for precious playing time.

The signing leaves Washington with just 3 more draft picks to sign, QB’s Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins as well as Guard/Center Josh LeRibeus have yet to agree to a deal with the Redskins.

About ImproperRedskin

I grew up watching the Redskins with my dad. I feel I've always been a part of Redskins Nation. I'm so excited about the direction the team is taking now. I feel somewhat exiled in terms of the skins living in Boston, even though I know there are other fans here. That's pretty much why I started doing this, to touch base with other Redskins fans across the country. There's always something to talk about with the Redskins, isn't there? I want to hear your voice.
