Jason Hatcher excited for new defensive scheme

When the Washington Redskins signed Jason Hatcher to a four-year, $27.5 million contract in 2014, they expected to be getting a defensive lineman who could bring consistent interior pressure.

2 Redskins Defensive Linemen start camp on PUP list

Two Washington Redskins defensive linemen — Stephen Bowen and Jason Hatcher — will not be doing much when the team opens training camp tomorrow in Richmond, Virginia because they will be on the Physically Unable to Perform [PUP] list.

Grading Redskins Free Agent Signing So Far

DT Jason Hatcher Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports (4 years/27.5 million) Grade: A Jason Hatcher is an underrated signing by the Redskins. Not only is he a good defensive tackle, the Redskins also stole him from their dreaded rival, the Cowboys. Hatcher is a perfect fit for the Skins. The switch in the Cowboys’ defensive scheme from a 3-4 to 4-3 made him a defensive tackle, which helped...
