Where Has Marcus Washington Gone After Redskins?

When Marcus Washington was cut I bet he thought he would be picked up really fast, but that is not the case. He played well in D.C. barring injury. Here's a look at his stats for his career. 617 total tackles (448 solo, 169 ast, and 37.5 sacks), and three interceptions with one going for a TD.

These numbers started to drop after Sean Taylor (R.I.P.) came to Washington because, let's face it, it was Taylor's field for all four quarters. The additions of London Fletcher and Laron Landry didn't help one bit. These people helped the increasing decline every year, but the real fact was that he was an injury bug. If anything could happen, it happened to Marcus Washington.

Now that his stats had dropped, his salary cap hit had come into play, so in the 2009  off-season the Washington Redskins cut Marcus Washington.

I wouldn't care if we re-signed Mr. Washington, but let's be real. He doesn't deserve to be paid much until he is a proven starter again.

The Redskins should look to re-sign him to the veteran minimum, and add some depth to the roster. The only problem with this idea is that the Redskins have already moved on and may not have any interest in Marcus Washington. Also, Washington might not want to take a pay cut to play again.

With all do respect, Marcus Washington should be happy if any team offers him a contract. This also dropped his stock so no other teams are interested.

Anyway, this off-season has been one of the best in years. Let's hope it continues.
