The Washington Redskins have re-signed restricted free agent linebacker Will Compton, the team announced Monday.
Compton signed a deal worth $1.8 million. He received a low-round tender, which meant that had another team signed him the Redskins would not have received compensation.
Compton signed with the Redskins after going undrafted out of Nebraska in 2013. He’s played in 48 regular-season games, with 30 starts. Last season, Compton played and started in 15 games, in which he had a career best 104 tackles, five passes defensed and two fumbles recovered.
