Posted May 16, 2017

The Redskins have signed two-time first-team All-American Conference linebacker Nico Marley following a tryout at Washington's 2017 rookie minicamp.

The Redskins have signed two-time first-team All-American Conference linebacker Nico Marley following a tryout at Washington's 2017 rookie minicamp.

The Washington Redskins on Tuesday announced the signing of linebacker Nico Marley, who tried out over the weekend at the team’s annual rookie minicamp at the Inova Sports Performance Center at Redskins Park in Loudoun County, Va.

Marley, 22, spent his collegiate career at Tulane, where he appeared in 49 career games and collected 319 tackles (200 solo), 50.5 tackles for loss, 6.5 sacks, six passes defensed and four interceptions.

During his senior season in 2016, the 5-foot-8, 200 pounder earned first-team All-American Athletic Conference honors for a second consecutive season, leading the Green Wave in total tackles with 88.

Marley also recorded three sacks, three fumbles forced, two fumble recoveries and an interception.

As a junior in 2015, Marley earned first-team all-conference honors as he collected 82 tackles (13 for loss), along with one sack, one fumble forced and one interception.

In 2014 as a sophomore, Marley registered 82 tackles in 12 starts

The Weston, Fla., native appeared in 13 games with 12 starts as a freshman, tallying 67 tackles (10 for loss), two sacks, two passes defensed, one fumble forced and an interception en route to a Conference USA Co-Freshman of the Year selection.

Marley is the third player signed by the Redskins following rookie minicamp, joining cornerback Tevin Homer and tight end Manassah Garner. He is the grandson of reggae legend Bob Marley.
