WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — The Washington Redskins agreed to terms with fourth-round draft pick Keenan Robinson on Thursday.

The linebacker, who was selected with the 119th overall pick in last month’s NFL Draft, played collegiately at the University of Texas where he was a two-time second-team All-Big 12 selection.

Robinson, 6-foot-4 and 242 pounds, started all 13 games for the Longhorns as a senior, recording 106 tackles, including 10 for a loss, one sack and a safety. He also forced two fumbles.

The 22-year-old spent time at both inside and outside linebacker in college. However, the Redskins have earmarked him to play inside, behind London Fletcher and Perry Riley.

Robinson is the sixth of nine Redskins draft picks to sign with the team. First-round selection Robert Griffin III, third-round pick Josh LeRibeus and fourth-round pick Kirk Cousins have not signed their first NFL contracts yet.

Terms of the deal were not immediately available.
