Redskins sign Ioannidis to multiyear extension

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) The Washington Redskins have signed defensive lineman Matt Ioannidis to a multiyear contract extension.

The team announced the deal Thursday. Ioannidis started nine games last season and finished third on the Redskins with a career-high 7+ sacks.

Ioannidis, 25, has become a regular in Washington's defensive line rotation after being selected in the fifth round of the 2016 draft. In three NFL seasons, the Temple product has 66 tackles, 12 sacks, two forced fumbles and one recovery in 38 games.

With homegrown Ioannidis, Jonathan Allen, Daron Payne, Tim Settle and 2018 pickup Caleb Brantley, the Redskins could have five defensive linemen 25 or younger next season.
