Citing a source, Rapoport reported earlier that Toler was meeting with Washington. Rapoport added that the Redskins' linebackers coach, Greg Manusky, was Toler's defensive coordinator in Indianapolis.
Washington allowed 258 passing yards a game last year, which ranked 25th in the league. Football Outsiders was a little more kind to the defense, ranking it 19th in pass-defense DVOA (defense-adjusted value over average).
In addition, Chris Culliver will be a question mark ahead of the 2016 season after tearing his ACL and MCL last November. Toler will provide some much-needed depth to the secondary.
The Redskins might be asking too much, though, if they expect the 31-year-old to be a key member of the defense. A neck injury cost him the first five games of the 2015 season, and when he returned, his level of performance left a lot to be desired. Pro Football Focus graded him 106th out of 111 qualified cornerbacks.
