We have spent countless hours debating who, and what positions the Redskins should focus on in the 2012 NFL Draft, but unlike the debacle last year, this year will again return to the normal format of free agency occurring before the draft. For a team like the Redskins, this is very important, as it can help us fill some holes, and narrow down what positions and players we should target in the 2012 Draft.
Below is a look at some key free agents at various positions of need on offense who I feel can help this team in the rebuild.
Please remember, this list can change as re-worked contracts, and the franchise tag will come into play for many. The ages represent how old they will be come the start of the 2012 NFL season.
QB - This is out number one position of need going into the offseason. My hope is that out future signal caller will come from the draft, but we still need competent back-ups, and as of right now, I don't see any on our current roster.
Brian Hoyer - Pats 27 (Restricted FA)
Brady Quinn - Broncos 28
OL - This is an area of major importance, and how we address this during the off-season can go a long way in determining our success in 2012. We need to be smart and aggressive come FA.
Scott Wells - Packers 31
WR - The Redskins need a go-to guy at the WR spot. My hope is that Hankerson, or Paul can emerge as that guy, but there are some nice options on the FA market if the staff feels the current Skins are not up to the challenge.
DeSean Jackson - Eagles 25
Marques Colston - Saints 29
Steve Johnson - Bills 26
Robert Meachem - Saints 28
Early Doucet - Cards 27
Maurice Stovall - Lions 27
Pierre Garcon - Colts 26
