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.
