Similar to the safety position, the Skins' depth chart at cornerback didn't undergo much change.
Gone is Josh Wilson, and in his place are veteran journeyman Tracy Porter and rookie Bashaud Breeland.
Considering that opposing quarterbacks completed over 65 percent of their passes versus Washington in 2013, these changes don't elicit much hope that the team's pass defense will improve much in 2014.
Set to enter his 12th NFL season, even top cornerback DeAngelo Hall is a question mark for the Redskins. Although he was a Pro Bowl alternate last season, you have to ask how much longer Hall can battle with opposing team's top receivers with so much tread on his tires.
According to Pro Football Focus (via The Washington Post) Hall was matched up with the opponents' top receiver on 57 percent of his snaps last season, second only to Joe Haden.
With sophomore cornerback David Amerson set to be a first-year starter in 2014, it appears this responsibility will again fall on Hall.
Ill-equipped to match up with the league's top passing offenses, the Skins secondary will have to live and die off the team's pass rush.
Fortunately for Washington, the NFL scheduling gods did the team a solid in making its 2014 schedule.
Of its 16 games, only six are versus teams that finished higher than 15th in passing offense—with the Philadelphia Eagles the lone team that finished in the top 10.
With the talent on hand to field an explosive offense, this scheduling quirk could very well allow the Redskins to relive the playoff run they had in 2012.
At the very least, in a division without a distinct favorite, the team can make the trek up to eight wins.
