Dashon Goldson got stronger this offseason through MMA-style workouts

The Washington Redskins are expecting big things from safety Dashon Goldson. After trading for him this offseason, they are hoping that he can play more like the former Pro Bowler he once was than the struggling starter he was over the last two seasons. One thing they won't need to worry about his strength.

Four reasons the Redskins could surprise you and win the NFC East

As NFL training camps will open next week, most, if not all the so-called ‘experts’ have essentially relegated the Washington Redskins to the NFC East basement this coming season. Based on how the team has performed the past two seasons, I can understand in many aspects why the pundits have very low expectations. However it is the ‘responsibility’ of these people to have...

The price tag was a sixth-round 2016 NFL Draft pick and the remainder of Goldson's five-year, $47.5 million contract.This move was a gamble that the Redskins would make 10-out-of-10 times, based on their safety situation. Entering the offseason, a strong argument...

Washington Redskins: Four players who need to produce in 2015

2015 Washington Redskins Position Review: Safeties

The Washington Redskins have had a giant crater in their secondary since the death of Sean Taylor. They have not found a decent safety, let alone a player that can even come close to the playmaking ability of Taylor. In 2015 they may have finally found a few solid options. Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan traded for Dashon Goldson for next to nothing this offseason. Goldson...

Redskins FS Dashon Goldson: 'You can leave Culliver on an island'

The Washington Redskins needed to make a concerted effort to upgrade their secondary this offseason after finishing as one of the league's worst pass defenses in 2014. Although the safety situation was also a mess, no position group was more detrimental to the Redskins' success stopping the pass than the cornerbacks. Starters David Amerson and Bashaud Breeland made Football Outisders...

Joe Barry excited to run an aggressive defense with Redskins

When Washington Redskins hear the phrase "aggressive defense", they might immediately think, "oh not again". Former defensive coordinator Jim Haslett's hyper-aggressive scheme often left gaping holes in coverage over the middle and deep half of the field. The Redskins fielded one of the NFL's worst pass defenses by any metric over the last two seasons in Haslett's scheme. New defensive...

Three safeties the Washington Redskins should be considering in the NFL Draft

Washington will be without both their starting safeties from last season, which, trust me, is a good thing. As of right now, Dashon Goldson and Duke Ihenacho are set to be holding down the safety position, but the Redskins should probably think about upgrading. Those guys may have been good two or three years ago, but they’ve been miserable the last couple of years. Goldson was...

Will Redskins Continue Focus On Defense?

The Redskins focus during free agency was nearly entirely on the defensive side of the ball. Even before free agency began, Washington added defensive lineman Ricky Jean-Francois. Once bidding officially began, defensive lineman Stephen Paea and Terrance Knighton signed with the Burgundy and Gold. The Redskins then moved to the secondary, signing Chris Culliver and Jeron Johnson...

Has Washington Redskins GM Scot McCloughan done what no one else can?

Last month, I rendered an early verdict on Scot McCloughan’s work as the General Manager of the Washington Redskins. I praised McCloughan for several signings that showed a measured, smart, value-centric approach, as opposed to the big, splashy, “overpay-for-a-name” style that we’ve seen more than once during the Dan Snyder Era in Washington. Since that time, McCloughan has...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers trade S Dashon Goldson to the Washington Redskins

Trade for Tampa Bay: Goldson topped my list of cap casualty candidates for the Buccaneers. In fact, I was confused why he wasn’t cut earlier in the off-season, a move that would have saved the Buccaneers 4 million in cash and cap space.
