Different aspects of Washington's team have looked bad over the past few seasons. Both offense and defense have had their ups and downs, but special teams has been consistently in need of serious improvement.
As it stands, we currently have no idea who will be kicking, who will be punting or who will be handling returns.
Incumbent kicker Kai Forbath faces competition from rookie Zach Hocker, who brings a stronger leg for kickoffs in particular. Sav Rocca was released earlier this offseason, making way for Robert Malone and Blake Clingan to compete for the job.
As for returners, the Redskins may have lucked out with Andre Roberts, who is capable of working both punt- and kick-return duties in addition to his role on offense. However, he hasn't worked return duty with any regularity since his rookie season.
Expected to compete with Roberts are Richard Crawford (returning from a torn ACL), the enigmatic Chris Thompson and inexperienced rookie Lache Seastrunk.
The Redskins have options across the board, but there's no level of confidence because the options are almost entirely new to the roster.
