The Washington Redskins reportedly came to agreements with LB Rob Jackson, FB Darrell Young and TE Logan Paulson before the players were set to become free agents on Tuesday.
Jackson is said to have a one-year deal, not the restricted free agent one-year tender according to The Washington Post. Jackson, a seventh round pick in 2008, has appeared in 42 games in his career. He has 4 1/2 sacks last season with four interceptions and two forced fumbles, taking over in the pressure linebacker spot for the injured Brian Orakpo.
Young and Paulson are said to have three-year deals. According to The Post, Jackson’s contract includes a $1 million signing bonus and could be worth up to $6.2 million over the length of the deal. Young was the starting fullback last season, with 14 rushes for 60 yards and eight catches for 109 yards. He also one of the Skins’ top coverage players.
Tight end Paulson also signed a three-year deal. Paulson made 25 catches for 308 yards and a touchdown in his best offensive season with Fred Davis out for the year with injury.
