Washington Redskins Free Agency: 5 Inside Linebackers to Partner London Fletcher

Adding another dynamic inside linebacker who can excel in their 3-4 defense, like D'Qwell Jackson of the Cleveland Browns, should be one of the free agency priorities for the Washington Redskins. Imagine how much more fearsome the Redskins defense would be if London Fletcher were partnered with a rising star like Curtis Lofton of the Atlanta Falcons.

With Fletcher 36 and youngster Perry Riley lacking experience and a complete skill set, the Redskins defense could use another option inside. Fletcher is still an elite linebacker, but he simply doesn't have many playing years left.

Riley was solid when he stepped in for Rocky McIntosh this season, but he has a weakness in pass coverage that exposes the Redskins against more explosive tight ends and slot receivers.

Pairing Fletcher with a more marquee player will boost the scheme flexibility of the Redskins 3-4 front and help to shore up the run defense and create more turnovers.

Here is a list of five free agent inside linebackers the Redskins should seriously consider making a move for.
