The Washington Redskins have come to terms with rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins, the player announced via Twitter.
“Just signed my contract,” Cousins tweeted. “Officially a member of the Washington Redskins.”
Shortly after, the Redskins sent out a tweet of their own announcing the news.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but fourth-round picks last season signed four-year deals worth around $2.5 million.
Drafted in the fourth round out of Michigan State, Cousins becomes the seventh of Washington’s nine draft picks to sign.
First-round pick Robert Griffin III and third-round pick Josh LeRibeus remain unsigned but continue to take part in offseason practices.
Cousins is competing with veteran Rex Grossman and Jonathan Crompton to be Griffin’s backup.
