The Redskins announced Friday that they have signed LB Perry Riley. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The team now has signed five of its six 2010 draft picks.
Riley was selected in the fourth round (103rd overall) of the 2010 NFL draft. He played in 47 career games with 22 starts at LSU. As a two-year starter at linebacker, Riley recorded 185 career tackles (88 solo), 13 tackles for loss, two sacks, two interceptions and two fumble recoveries.
In PFW's 2010 Draft Preview, personnel analyst Nolan Nawrocki wrote that the 6-2, 245-pound Riley "brings the wood and is a physical enough run defender to be effective on first and second down."
