Rambo would go on to start eight games for the Redskins in his rookie season. Against the Philadelphia Eagles in the season opener, he recorded a season-high 10 tackles. The former Georgia Bulldog also played an integral part on the special teams unit, where he learned under former Redskin and special teams captain, Reed Doughty.
