Less than an hour after agreeing to terms with sixth-round punter Durant Brooks on a four-year contract, the Redskins just followed suit on a deal with second-round receiver Malcolm Kelly.

Kelly agreed to four-year deal that includes $1.655 million signing bonus.


The former Oklahoma star is the seventh of Washington’s 10 draft picks to sign or agree to terms, leaving only fellow second-round receiver Devin Thomas, second-round tight end Fred Davis and sixth-round quarterback Colt Brennan not yet in the fold.

Kelly, who left school a year early after catching 144 passes in three seasons, coild play a critical role in the red zone for the Redskins because of his 6-foot-4 height, six inches taller than incumbent starters Santana Moss and Antwaan Randle El.
