The first wave of free agency swept by us like a tsunami engulfing a small Asian village. After the damage was assessed, we were left with a new starting guard, a impact defensive end for our 3-4 defense, a nickle corner, a very solid number three receiver, a new starting linebacker(take your pick between the three signed), a lot of solid depth, and a few of our own key players who were re-signed. Whew............................that was fun!
Now begins the strategic part.
There are still plenty of quality free agents left, and the Redskins still have many needs to fill. Now that the market has been set for most positions, the bargain shopping can begin.
The main needs are safety, center, right tackle and possibly another guard so we can move on from Chris Chester. The following are options who are 30 or younger, and should be much cheaper than previously signed players at their respective positions.

Thomas DeCoud(26) ATL
