The Washington Redskins agreed to terms with fifth-round pick Robert McCune. The inside linebacker from Louisville will receive approximately a $125,000 signing bonus and a three-year contract for $1.05million.

The 5-foot-11, 243-pound McCune was first-team All-Conference USA last season while leading the Cardinals in tackles with 157 (57 solo). He also had two sacks and one interception.

The 26-year-old spent three years in the National Guard and served in Kuwait and South Korea before attending college. McCune ran track early in his college career as part of Louisville’s 400-meter relay team.

The Redskins have three unsigned draftees, including both first-rounders — cornerback Carlos Rogers and quarterback Jason Campbell — and fourth-round running back Manuel White.

Training camp opens Aug.1.
