Latest Salary Cap Breakdown for Washington Redskins

Last year's franchise player, Fred Davis' new contract will need to be cap-friendly.

As with last year, the cap penalty looms large over every decision the Washington Redskins must make this offseason. However, there are more players reaching free agency this time around, making these decisions more difficult.

A large part of Washington’s success last year was due to consistency from the offensive line. With the exception of Tyler Polumbus, the line did a good job of protecting Robert Griffin III and allowing him the time to make his decisions. Even Polumbus did a good job against the run, so it will be tempting to try to retain them all.

Similarly, last year’s franchise player Fred Davis looked good prior to injury, and the front office knows that he has yet to reach his potential. A long-term deal will cost less this year, but it remains a risk.

This piece breaks down the roster by position and looks at some critical elements pertaining to the cap, free agency and the draft.
