ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — The Washington Redskins have signed Nico Marley, grandson of legendary Jamaican musician Bob Marley.

The 5-foot-8 linebacker out of Tulane was at the Redskins’ rookie minicamp over the weekend on a tryout. They added him to the roster Tuesday.

Marley was a four-year starter in college, becoming Tulane’s all-time leader in tackles for loss with 501/2. He had 319 tackles, 61/2 sacks and four interceptions in 49 games.

Nico’s father, Rohan, played at Miami alongside Warren Sapp and Ray Lewis in the early 1990s and led the team in tackles in 1993 before playing in the Canadian Football League.
