Washington Redskins[edit]

LeRibeus was selected 71st overall in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins.[2] While at SMU, he was a teammate of future Redskins teammates Richard Crawford, who the Redskins would later draft in the seventh round, and Aldrick Robinson, who was the Redskins' 6th round pick in 2011.[3] After the Redskins' rookie mini-camp, head coach Mike Shanahan announced that LeRibeus will primarily be playing guard and will be a backup center, providing competition for Erik Cook.[4] On July 18, 2012, he officially signed with the Redskins to a four-year contract.[5] During training camp, he split snaps at the left guard position with Maurice Hurt after Kory Lichtensteiger had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.[6] He made his NFL debut against the Carolina Panthers in Week 9. Despite playing only five games, Redskins coaching staff believed LeRibeus had a chance to compete for a starting position in the next season.

During the 2013 offseason training camp, LeRibeus came 30 pounds overweight and out of shape.[7] He was listed as inactive for the entire 2013 season.[8]

On March 16, 2016, LeRibeus re-signed with the Redskins.[9] He was released on September 3, 2016.[10]

Philadelphia Eagles[edit]

On January 11, 2017, LeRibeus signed a reserve/future contract with the Eagles.[11] On May 4, 2017, he was released by the Eagles.[12]

New Orleans Saints[edit]

On May 15, 2017, LeRibeus signed with the New Orleans Saints.[13]
