Redskins Re-Sign Linebacker Mason Foster

Posted Mar 9, 2016

The Washington Redskins have re-signed inside linebacker Mason Foster, who came on strong at the end of the 2015 season.

The Washington Redskins have re-signed inside linebacker Mason Foster, who came on strong at the end of the 2015 season.

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.

Foster, 27, was signed by the Redskins on Sept. 29 as a free agent following his September release by the Chicago Bears.

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.

But after Perry Riley Jr. suffered a foot injury in the week of practices leading up to the Redskins’ first matchup with the Dallas Cowboys in early December, Foster was pushed into starting duties.

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.

Foster will re-join Will Compton, who also went from backup to starter during the season, on the roster.

The Redskins reportedly extended a tender to Compton, who is an exclusive rights free agent along with Chris Thompson and Tress Way.

Perry Riley Jr. and Martrell Spaight are also on the roster as inside linebackers, while the Redskins say they will let Keenan Robinson test free agency.
