ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- Linebacker Keenan Robinson has signed a contract with the Washington Redskins, who picked him in the fourth round of last month's NFL draft.
The 6-foot-3, 242-pound Robinson played college football at Texas, including one season with Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo.
Robinson was a three-year starter for the Longhorns and was the 119th overall pick in the draft.
He is expected to provide depth at linebacker for the Redskins in their 3-4 defense, behind starters Orakpo, London Fletcher, Ryan Kerrigan and Perry Riley.
The team announced Robinson's deal Thursday.
