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...

3 offensive lineman the Washington Redskins should consider in free agency

How do you know when your offensive line is good? When you never hear about them. Unfortunately, we heard about the Redskins o-line A LOT last year. Most of the blame for last season’s offensive troubles has been placed on the quarterbacks or Jay Gruden – and rightly so – but you can’t leave the five guys up front without any blame. No matter who’s playing quarterback next...

Why Chris Baker is set to be a major part of the Washington Redskins

There is a crack in the fault line that runs down the center of the Washington Redskins defense, with Barry Cofield scheduled to be out at least eight weeks because of a high ankle sprain, and Brandon Meriweather serving the final game of an unwarranted suspension. In Meriweather’s place we might see a new face playing strong safety this week, if the team is ready to insert Duke...
