Redskins Sign Austin to Rookie Contract


The Redskins have signed seventh-round draft pick Terrence Austin, the team announced on Wednesday.

Austin becomes the fourth Redskins draft pick to sign with the club. First-round draft pick Trent Williams and fourth-rounder Perry Riley remain unsigned.

Austin, 5-11 and 172 pounds, was the 219th overall selection in the April 22-24 NFL Draft.

In four years at UCLA, Austin posted 109 catches for 1,192 yards and five touchdowns. As a senior in 2009, he had 37 catches for 455 yards and a career-high four TDs.

Austin also served as the Bruins' primary punt and kick return specialist. He was second-team All-Pac 10 as a kick returner last year.

He returned 89 kickoffs for a 24.1-yard average and 95 punts for a 9.9-yard average in his career at UCLA.

In his four-year collegiate career at UCLA, Austin finished second in school annals in all-purpose yardage (4,425).

He also caught a pass in each of his final 27 contests as a Bruin.
