ASHBURN, Va. - Linebacker Keenan Robinson has signed a contract with the Washington Redskins, who picked him in the fourth round of last month's NFL draft.

The 6-foot-3, 242-pound Robinson played college football at Texas, including one season with Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo.

Robinson was a three-year starter for the Longhorns and was the 119th overall pick in the draft.

He is expected to provide depth at linebacker for the Redskins in their 3-4 defense, behind starters Orakpo, London Fletcher, Ryan Kerrigan and Perry Riley.

The team announced Robinson's deal Thursday.
