State of the Redskins Depth Chart: Safeties

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Heading into Week 4 of the NFL preseason, Mike Harar takes a look at the safeties currently on the roster and their status as of this week.

Position Battles: Safeties

Brandon Meriweather - Meriweather will finally see some game action on Thursday in Tampa.  This will be a big test for his reconstructed right knee and coaches are hoping he will not have any setbacks heading into the regular season.  He will reportedly play the entire first half, and if his knee responds well, he will most likely be ready for the start of Week 1.

Trending: Up

Bacarri Rambo - Rambo played his most complete game last Saturday.  He did not make any glaring mistakes and looked very comfortable in the defense.  He will no doubt continue to battle with rookie mistakes, but it is obvious his role as a starter is not too big for him right now.  His confidence will hopefully continue to grow as he learns to play in the NFL.

Trending: Up

Reed Doughty - Doughty again played a very solid game against Buffalo.  His role is locked-in heading into the season, and coaches love having him as a security blanket at strong safety and as a leader on special teams.

Trending: Up

DeJon Gomes - Gomes did not stand out last week.  He may be running out of time.

Trending: Down

Jordan Pugh - Pugh showed again that he is a strong tackler with speed.  He appears to have the edge over Gomes right now.

Trending: Up

Jose Gumbs - Gumbs continues to play a violent brand of football.  He is making it difficult each week for coaches to not put him on the 53-man roster.  At a minimum, he should be a great candidate for the practice squad.

Trending: Up

Tanard Jackson - The team should find out next week if he will be reinstated after failing several drug tests.  Should the league allow him back in, the Redskins will have a wild card in the safety mix.
