The Washington Redskins are a flawed team.
I don’t think any reader will disagree with this statement. Coming off a disappointing 6-10 season in which their transition to the 3-4 defense went about as well as Brett Favre’s sexting campaign, significant upgrades are needed and expected.
The Redskins had a very solid draft and managed to select 12 players, providing a much-needed infusion of youth.
Now, however, the team moves on to the next phase of rebuilding: free agency.
It’s quite apparent that the Redskins’ free agent signings in the past years have been nothing short of disastrous. I, for one, never knew it was possible to pay a garbage dumpster $41 million guaranteed.
Yet the Skins are poised to be active players in the market once again upon the end of the lockout (it’s like waiting for your girlfriend to forgive you after you’ve messed up; there seems to be no end in sight).
Here a few names Washington would be wise to look into once the negotiations on a new CBA are completed.
