On Tuesday, the Washington Redskins beefed up their defensive line as they signed Phillip Merling to a reserve/futures contract. Merling is a 6-5, 315 pound defensive end who was drafted in the second round (32nd overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins.

Merling was a standout during his three years at Clemson University. During his junior year, he was a key member of a defense that finished the season in the top-10 in scoring and total defense. To add to his honors, he was a member of the 2007 All-Atlantic Coast Conference Team after finishing the season with 78 tackles and seven sacks.

During his rookie season, Merling showed off his abilities in a game against the New York Jets when he picked off Brett Favre and rumbled into the end zone for a pick-six. His interception was a game-changing moment and helped the Dolphins clinch the AFC East title.

His wallet now much lighter, Robinson treated seven of his fellow linebacker teammates to the annual rookie dinner last night in Washington, D.C.

In attendance was Robinson, Lorenzo Alexander, London Fletcher, Rob Jackson, Ryan Kerrigan, Brian Orakpo, Perry Riley and Chris Wilson.

Several of the guys went to Twitter to document this special occasion. Here’s a few of the tweets in order of their appearance last night:

Sunday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC Wild Card round of the playoffs was a tough pill to swallow for the Washington Redskins players.
