Redskins Sign 5th-Rd Pick RB Chris Thompson
The Redskins announced Wednesday afternoon that they have signed fifth-round pick Chris Thompson to his rookie contract.
A 5-foot-7, 192-pound running back out of Florida State, Thompson was selected with the 154th overall pick of the draft. The Redskins did not release terms of the contract, but the worth of the deal is similar to the four-year, $2.3 million contract that last year’s 154th overall pick – Seattle linebacker Kory Toomer – signed.
Thompson appeared in 38 games during his career at Florida State and he carried the ball 277 times for 1,735 yards and 14 touchdowns. Thompson suffered a broken vertebra in his back in 2011, and had his 2012 season cut short by a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
