In an unpredictable NFC East, Jay Gruden made some offseason moves that should see his Washington Redskins team back in contention.
Although being offseason champions hasn't worked out very well for the Burgundy and Gold in the past, this year's additions were rooted in need.
Ranking the list was based on the following criteria:
- The player has to have proven experience in the NFL to be considered an upgrade. Sorry, rookies.
- Coaching staff can be included, but the same rules apply. So despite Gruden appearing to be an excellent addition, he's never been an NFL head coach before. The situation in D.C. might be more pleasant right now, but he doesn't rank as an upgrade over Mike Shanahan. Not yet, anyway.
- The player also had to be a new arrival. Free agents who were re-signed don't count.
That's it. Read on for the rankings.
