Early Look At The Redskins Offseason Strategy

Hey Guys,

As we begin to turn our eyes towards next season, I wanted to share an article I wrote on Fanspeak about what the Redskins offseason plan should be, that you can find here! I broke down cuts/trades I would make, which players I'd resign, top free agent targets and my strategy for next year's draft.

Here are some of the highlights, for more in-depth coverage on my reasoning, read the whole article:

-I'd look to Trade Jabar Gafney

-Mike Sellers, Jamaal Brown, and Ryan Torain should be off the team

-I'd look to resign London Fletcher, LaRon Landry, and Fred Davis

-I'd probably resign Tim Hightower and Kory Lichtensteiger

-I'd probably let Will Montgomery walk

-I'd look to sign QB Matt Flynn, OG Ben Grubbs, and C Chris Myers (among others) to rebuild the offense

-I'd make a big splash and sign DE Calais Campbell on defense

-With a viable quarterback in place i'd look to trade back in the draft and stockpile early round picks

-I'd Draft OT Mike Adams, QB Ryan Tannehill, WR Dwight Jones, CB Jonathan Banks and RB David Wilson among my first two day selections. 

In the end my depth chart would look something like this:

QB: Matt Flynn, Ryan Tannehill, UDFA QB

RB: Roy Helu, Peyton Hillis, David Wilson, Tim Hightower

FB: Darryl Young

WR: Santana Moss, Leonard Hankerson, Dwight Jones, Niles Paul, Ryan Broyles, Austin/Robinson/other

TE: Fred Davis, Chris Cooley, Paulsen/other

OL: (first 5 starters): Trent Williams, Ben Grubbs, Chris Myers, Lichtensteiger, Mike Adams, Chris Chester, Lucas Nix, Willie Smith, Anthony Collins

DL: Calais Campbell, Barry Cofield, Stephen Bowen, Jarvis Jenkins, Golston, Neild, Late round/UDFA guy

LB: Kerrigan, Orakpo, Fletcher, Riley, Dan Conner, Rob Jackson, White, Alexander

CB: Hall, Wilson, Jonathan Banks, Leonard Johnson, Barnes/Thompson/other

S: Landry, Atogwe, Gomes, Aaron Henry (maybe Doughty)


Tell me what you guys think, I'd love to get your feedback!
