Redskins Re-sign Fletcher

And just when you thought he’d want to chase one more Super Bowl, he decided to return to D.C. instead.

Fletcher announced on Friday that he was back in the Burgundy and Gold by tweeting “Redskins fans your captain is back!” to his some 33,853 followers.

The Redskins have not yet confirmed the deal, which means the terms of Fletcher’s potential contract are not available at this time, but any news is good news when talking about a linebacker as productive as he.

Fletcher has spent the last five seasons in Washington, and has never missed a start with the team, playing all 80 games in that span. Last season he recorded 166 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 2 interceptions and 3 forced fumbles. Although Fletcher is 36, it doesn’t look like he’s running out of gas just yet, and Skins fans should be thrilled to have him back.
