Three free agents the Washington Redskins should have spent money on

The Washington Redskins have somehow managed to stay relatively quiet in free agency. While they added some key players in Chris Culliver and Stephen Paea, their contracts are a far cry from what the Redskins are used to giving out. But did Washington target the right guys?

Washington Redskins 2015 Draft Needs After Free Agency

Will Redskins Continue Focus On Defense?

Have the Washington Redskins gotten better in free agency?

Here’s a very simple, yet important, question: Have the Washington Redskins got better? The short answer is yes, but I think that doesn’t do the question justice. If the Redskins were going to improve anything over this offseason, it needed to be their defense. We’ve been over it again and again, but Washington was epically abysmal last season on the defensive side of the ball...

Washington Redskins sign CB Chris Culliver

I thought Culliver was one of the underrated players in free agency and would be a good value signing. He was just a 3rd round pick of the 49ers in 2011, but he’s quietly one of the better cornerbacks in the NFL. He had a significant role from the word go in 2011, playing 425 snaps and then 691 in 2012, grading out above average in both seasons, including 29th at his position...

One position of need this off-season for the Miami Dolphins is cornerback. The team already has a couple of unproven players at corner in Will Davis and Jamar Taylor, but I’m not completely sold on either player, as Davis is coming back from a knee injury, and Taylor also has durability issues.
