Bob Marley's grandson signs with Redskins

He had 319 tackles, 50.5 takedowns for a loss, seven sacks, seven forced fumbles, six fumble recoveries, five passes defended and four interceptions in 48 games for the Green Wave.

The Washington Redskins announced the signing of linebacker Nico Marley.

Singer Bob Marley also loved football, the round ball kind, playing it wherever he went, from manicured pitches to the inside of recording studios.

The 22-year-old linebacker signed as an undrafted agent from Tulane on Tuesday.

Marley earned his contract after trying out over the weekend during Washington's rookie minicamp.

Rolling Stone said Cornell exhorted the sold-out crowd on Wednesday night (Thursday New Zealand time) to act as backing vocalists. Along with Nirvana , Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains , Soundgarden helped spur the grunge movement that captured a generation.

"I'm so grateful to Tulane for giving me my only Division I opportunity, but I knew they had some doubts about me".

His father, Rohan, played linebacker at the University of Miami from 1992-1994.

Marley was one of three players Washington signed after rookie minicamp along with tight end Manasseh Garner and cornerback Tevin Homer.

In a 2014 interview with Sports Illustrated's Michael McKnight, Nico expressed his desire to carve his own path and not rely exclusively on his family name.

"I always wanted to make something for myself", he said to Sports Illustrated back in 2014.
