Grading Each Position on Washington's Roster Heading into Free Agency
Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports
Daniel Snyder is once again left searching for a head coach.

Right now, no one knows how the Washington Redskins' will be solved. Coachless and rudderless, the team has drifted into the offseason in a terrible state.

However, all is not lost.

Yes, there's no draft pick available in the first round, but the franchise is in a better position than it was the last time Daniel Snyder went coach-hunting. There are several aspects of the roster that show a lot of promise, and it's those that will attract potential suitors to one of the most thankless jobs in sports.

The fans no longer wish for huge free-agency signings—although, with the cap penalty gone, Washington now has some breathing room—and instead long for an exciting young team built through the draft.

A few additions in free agency wouldn't hurt, though.

For the purpose of this article—which pertains to the free-agency period—each position has been assigned a grade, which translates as follows:

A = No free agents needed. All is well.

B = Bargain free agent would be ideal, if only for depth.

C = Solid contributor needed, but just enough present to scrape by regardless.

D = Starting-caliber player required, but contributors present elsewhere on the roster.

E = Urgent attention required, only bit-part players present.

F = Lacking any depth or talent. Woeful.
