After recently signing Tracy Porter, the busy day continues for the Washington Redskins as they agreed to terms of a contract with former Houston Texans inside linebacker Darryl Sharpton.  The 26-year old has played just four seasons in the League all with the Houston Texans.  Despite lingering injuries during his first three seasons, Sharpton put it together in 2013 recording 86 tackles over the course of 15 games.
