Are the Redskins done at cornerback? | Comcast SportsNet Washington
Josh Wilson, who has started the last 48 games at cornerback opposite Hall, is set to be a free agent on March 11. The Redskins drafted David Amerson in the second round last year and although he still has some rough edges that need work it is a good bet that he will be starting when opening day rolls around. If that is the plan, there is no need to bring back Wilson unless he wants to come back on the cheap as the nickel back. This also likely rules out the team going after a big-money free agent cornerback like Aqib Talib of the Patriots or Alterraun Verner of the Titans.

Hopefully we never have to go through that again — or I’ll never go through that again — because I don’t want to be around something like that. That was an embarrassment to the organization, to yourself."

Best fit: Geoff Schwartz, Chiefs. Started six of the last seven games at right guard after taking over for Jon Asamoah. Schwartz also made one start at left guard in 2013 and can play tackle in a pinch. At 6-6, 340-pounds, Schwartz possesses the size Gruden prefers at guard.

It should be noted that Schwartz and the Chiefs have both acknowledged that they’d like to get an extension hammered out.
