The Washington Redskins entered the 2013 free-agency period with a certain expectation for loss. With another $18 million of lost cap space, the team was pressed for cash and would be forced to part ways with notable starters.
Miraculously, the Redskins' front office has done an underrated job of keeping a significant portion of the team's free agents. Players like Kedric Golston, Rob Jackson and Darrel Young were re-signed despite the salary-cap concerns, and the Redskins also managed to add outside talent in offensive tackle Jeremy Trueblood and cornerback E.J. Biggers.
Nevertheless, the offseason gods demanded sacrifice from the burgundy and gold and some hometown favorites are no longer present. Here, we will discuss three offseason losses that will hurt the Redskins the most in 2013. Keep in mind throughout this piece that some players are still free agents and others may be re-signed.
