Currently equipped with a platoon-like approach at the defensive secondary position, the Redskins shouldn't shy away from attainable cornerback or safety talent.
Although the team missed—if they even pursued to begin with—on guys like Brandon Carr and Cortland Finnegan, one has to wonder if they'd attempt a trade for a less popular name.
As much as it would hurt to see a former Cowboys player in burgundy and gold, could the Redskins benefit from a young corner like Mike Jenkins?
Jenkins enters the final year of his rookie contract in Dallas and his performance as of late isn't nearly enough to keep him off of the trading block. At just 27-years-old and two years removed from a five-interception season, Jenkins is slightly attractive. That is, of course, if you view him at his more natural No. 3 position.
The Dallas secondary has absorbed plenty of blame the last couple of seasons, which they deserve, and the Cowboys appear to be going in another direction. Because he hasn't yet lived up to the expectations of a first-round draft pick (25th overall in 2008), Jenkins could find himself on the outside looking in.
Jenkins wouldn't necessarily step in as a starter for the Redskins, as I'd probably take both Josh Wilson and DeAngelo Hall over him at this point. But he would almost certainly lock down the starting nickel spot and create some competition in camp.
