Rookie RB Roy Helu agreed to terms on a contract with the Redskins on Wednesday night and is expected to sign the deal on Thursday, his agent, Kenny Zuckerman, told PFW on Thursday.

Helu, a fourth-round pick, rushed for 1,245 yards on 188 carries in his senior season at Nebraska. He is expected to compete for playing time in the Redskins' backfield.
