The main objective of Washington’s offseason has been to keep as many pieces in place as it can, and the Redskins have done a pretty good job. The Redskins re-signed several key players from their 2012 team—guys like Darrel Young and Kedric Golston.
They made their biggest splash of the offseason with the signing of cornerback E.J. Biggers, an economic move that will prove to be beneficial down the road.
Given the abysmal history of the Redskins and big-name, free-agent signings, the cap penalties could be a blessing in disguise. The short leash that Washington has when it comes to free-agent spending has added up to a quiet, yet solid, offseason to date.
That is not to say that there hasn’t been plenty of setbacks, though.
There have been highlights, and there have been lowlights, but it has all added up to an interesting offseason for Washington so far.
