The Washington Redskins have re-signed inside linebacker
After going from mid-season signing to a productive starter when the Washington Redskins needed their best play down the stretch, Mason Foster has re-signed with the team.
The Redskins formally announced the deal Wednesday afternoon. Terms were not disclosed.
The University of Washington product would appear only as backup as an inside linebacker on defense for his first two months with the Redskins while also contributing on special teams.
He responded by tallying seven tackles, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in that game.
For the season, Foster would total 43 tackles (one for loss).
Before spending time with the Redskins and Bears, Foster, a third-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, played with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for four seasons.
During the 2012 season, Foster recorded 105 tackles with two sacks and an interception.
“The thing I was lucky with was I always liked Mason when he came out,” Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan said at the Senior Bowl. “He was a football player through and through; a tough guy, big guy, smart guy.”
In total, Foster has amassed 380 tackles with six sacks, 12 passes defensed, five interceptions and two touchdowns, both coming during the 2013 season.
