ASHBURN, Va. — Restricted free agent linebacker Will Compton re-signed with the Washington Redskins on Monday.

He signed with the Redskins after going undrafted out of Nebraska in 2013, playing in 48 regular-season NFL games, including 29 starts. Last season, Compton played and started in 15 games. He had career bests with 103 tackles, five passes defensed and two fumbles recovered.

Compton was the Redskins starting middle linebacker and served as a captain in the 2016 season.


“The more I put into it, the more excited I get,” Compton said in a statement. “The guys in the building, I feel like we have a lot of great people from top to bottom in the building. ...I think we have a really great group of guys. We can build in a lot of different areas, but I’m excited.”
