    REDSKINS RE-SIGN RB CHRIS THOMPSON

    LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have re-signed restricted free agent running back Chris Thompson. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

    Thompson (5-8, 195) has appeared in 35 career regular season games since joining the Redskins as a fifth-round pick (154th overall) in the 2013 NFL Draft. In his first four NFL seasons from 2013-16, he rushed 106 times for 584 yards with three rushing touchdowns and caught 49 passes for 349 yards with five receiving touchdowns.

    Last season, Thompson played in all 16 games for the first time in his career, posting career highs in rushing attempts (68), rushing yards (356), rushing touchdowns (three), receptions (49) and receiving yards (349) while matching his career high with two receiving touchdowns. He was one of only two players in the NFL to record at least 60 carries, 40 receptions and 15 kickoff returns in 2016 (Green Bay's Ty Montgomery).

    Thompson, 26, played collegiately at Florida State after attending Madison County H.S. in Madison, Fla.

    He's a solid role-player. As long as the contract is reasonable that's a good re-signing.

    I'm pretty sure he was tendered as a restricted FA. Clear on the contract

    He has been the most consistent RB we've had since Morris' first 3 years.

    The more things change...the more they stay the same. It's like deja vu all over again.

    It was so nice to see him be able to stay on the field last season. Tough little dude.

    I think that was in reference to Bruce Allen who reportedly brushes his teeth with Coors Light.
