A look at the top options that make sense for the Redskins to purse in free agency, including QB, RB and WR options.
A look at the top options that make sense for the Redskins to pursue among TE's, offensive tackles, offensive guards and centers.
After recording eight combined tackles and a sack in the preseason, Jenkins made virtually no impact in the regular season.
In fact, he only participated in only 41 plays on defense spread over four games. He finished his rookie season with one assisted tackle ... that he recorded on special teams ... in the season opener. That was it.
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk quoted a league source who said as much on Saturday. "Deals will be higher across this year across the board. Teams will be spending this year."
On the roster: DeAngelo Hall, David Amerson, Richard Crawford and Chase Minnifield. Hall has re-signed and will be counted upon to start and provide veteran leadership in 2014. Amerson, last season's No. 3 corner, figures to get more responsibility in his second season. How much more? Likely depends on what the Redskins do in free agency. Crawford is coming off a serious knee injury; we won't know how much he'll be able to contribute until later this offseason. Minnifield, meantime, has yet to appear in regular season game and must prove he's progressing in order to stick around.
The second round of the mailbag is a continuation of the first: more free agency talk. But there's a little more Robert Griffin III sprinkled in and what he's doing this offseason to improve. Hint: a lot.
Yes, the Washington Redskins are interested in New England cornerback Aqib Talib, who will be a free agent Tuesday. They were among the teams that contacted him, but this is clearly no surprise. I'm not sure of a Redskins beat reporter who didn't speculate on this possibility. But they have contacted a number of players, or, more accurately, their agents: (among them based on reports: tackle Anthony Collins; safety Mike Mitchell, who was among the first contacted; and defensive lineman Arthur Jones). All of these make sense and have been speculated about, but they won't sign them all. Collins, for example, would be a good right tackle, but I'd imagine he'll get paid as a left tackle.
