Report: Perry Riley to re-sign with Redskins

Perry Riley has racked up 244 tackles and 6.5 sacks over the last two seasons with the Washington Redskins.

Apparently that production has made Washington want to keep him around.

According to Dianna Russini of NBC News 4 in Washington D.C., Riley has agreed to a deal to return to Redskins.

Riley has started 40 straight games for Washington since taking over as a starter midway through the 2011 season. He’s been a tackling machine for the Redskins ever since. Riley has compiled 319 tackles, 7.5 sacks, a forced fumble, an interception and 19 passes defensed over his first four seasons in D.C.

With London Fletcher heading into retirement – 99 percent of the way into retirement at least –  Riley appears poised to take the reins as the leader in the middle of Washington’s defense next season.

    How do you 99% retire?

    Oh I see he’s 90% sure he’s going to 99% retire. Makes perfect sense now

    I like Riley, however I don’t think he would fit as well somewhere else. I also believe that he wouldn’t make as much somewhere else. Rocky McIntosh thought he would as well, and then he found out he wouldn’t and has bouncing since.

    Riley looks to be smarter.

    I’m sure there will be a hefty signing bonus to take away most of the hit on this year’s cap room.
