ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - The Washington Redskins have signed free-agent linebacker Pernell McPhee.

The team announced the deal Monday. McPhee spent the past three seasons with the Chicago Bears.

Knee and shoulder injuries limited McPhee to 22 games over the past two seasons. In 2017, McPhee had 21 tackles, four sacks and a forced fumble in 13 games.

McPhee has 182 tackles and 31 sacks in seven NFL seasons with the Bears and Baltimore Ravens. The 29-year-old Mississippi State product joins Ryan Kerrigan and Preston Smith in Washington’s rotation of outside linebackers.
