As another disappointed season winds down in Redskins Nation, there are only two things Redskins fans can take solace in; one, that's it'll be over, and two, that the off-season seems to be rich with unrestricted free agents and a deep, talent draft class.
It's clear that the culture has changed in Washington, even if the winning ways haven't followed right away. The Redskins will approach the off-season with a new view; production over name value, and hard workers over primadonnas. The Redskins have a lot of holes to fill, after years and years of ignoring certain positions, and with still trying to install new systems with the proper personnel.
Fans have a tendency to think it has to be one way or the other--you can either draft people, or you can bring in free agents, but you can't do both. This is false--the Redskins will have to balance out all their needs with the right mentality, and the right mix of hard workers.
So, let's take a look at the free agents and potential draftees the Redskins should strongly consider bringing in to upgrade the team in 2011.
