Report: Perry Riley Re-Signs with the Redskins

Perry Riley is returning to the Redskins.

Reports are coming in that the Redskins have successfully re-signed ILB Perry Riley.  Details on the length and value of the contract have not been released yet.  Riley is the last of the four defensive players that Defensive Coordinator Jim Haslett said were priorities to re-sign this offseason.  The Redskins are rumored to be interested in a lot of defensive players, and Haslett will enter next season with what he needs to help improve on the disappointing performances of the last few years.

"Re-sign ‘Rak, re-sign Perry. And we have some other guys on defense," Haslett said when asked about the priorities of the offseason. "Chris Baker did a good job, and D-Hall. There’s a bunch of them, so we’d like to have those guys back."

Perry Riley was a 4th round pick in 2010, and has started all 16 games in the past 2 seasons for the Redskins.  Last season he led the team in tackles with 115 tackles, and also had 3 sacks, 8 passes defended and 1 INT.  He will have very big shoes to fill with his mentor London Fletcher announcing his retirement last year.  The Redskins still have another spot at ILB to fill, but Perry Riley is back, and fills a very important hole in the defense for the 2014 season and beyond.
