Redskins get top pick under contract, one left

The Redskins had to wait longer than most teams to actually draft someone this year, but they’re wasting no time signing them.

The team announced they had signed their top pick, outside linebacker Trent Murphy, to his four-year rookie contract.

That leaves third-rounder Morgan Moses as their last unsigned pick, as they’ve made quick work of the easy deals.

Murphy, a tough pass-rusher from Stanford, led the nation with 15.0 sacks last season. He gives them solid depth behind Ryan Kerrigan and franchised Brian Orakpo, and should see plenty of time this year.

    Shouldve drafted DB’s. Once Meriweather and Ryan Clark get suspended for headshots they’ll have to turn to Bacarri Rambo. MeAngelo is their only good CB besides Tracy Porter, but he’ll be injured and on the IR by Week 4

    Murphy will have a bigger impact than that bust Griffin this season. They should have drafted a new starting QB that understand how to read a defense. Cheers!

    Solid depth with massive 11 1/4″ hands and could be a starter when/if Orakpo leaves

    5yrs from now this kid will be a household name. The franchise QB will be elsewhere, if not out of the league. If your not 6′ 5″ 250 lb. pocket passer your not a QB in the N.F.L.
