As expected, the Redskins have worked out a new contract with the leader of their defense.
“Redskins fans your captain is back!” linebacker London Fletcher declared on Twitter.
Fletcher, who turns 37 next month, has appeared in every game during 14 NFL seasons. He has started every game for the Redskins over the last five seasons.
Fletcher entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 1998. He became a full-time starter the next year, which resulted in the Rams winning Super Bowl XXXIV.
After four years with the Rams, Fletcher spent five seasons with the Bills.
