The Redskins have acquired their second defensive player today. Inside linebacker Darryl Sharpton agreed to terms with the Redskins on a one-year deal worth up to $2 million, according to Pro Football Talk.
Sharpton has been with the Texans since they took him in the fourth round of the 2010 draft. He has played in 42 games for Houston, starting 19. He has one career interception and one sack.
Sharpton will be in the mix to start at inside linebacker alongside Perry Riley. Ironically, Sharpton and Riley were chosen with consecutive picks in the fourth round in 2010. It is also expected that he will contribute on special teams.
The Redskins agreed to terms with cornerback Tracy Porter earlier today.
