It’s July. Free Agency is finished. The draft is in the books. Training Camp is 3 weeks away, and it seems like a good time to consider how the Redskins stack up against their division rivals.
Today, I’d like to think about the Safeties — a 2-man unit that has a huge effect on both the run and the pass defense.
Here’s a summary of the likely starting safety pair for each of the division teams:
Su'a Cravens, D.J. Swearinger
Byron Jones, Jeff Heath
Malcolm Jenkins, Rodney McLeod
Landon Collins, Darian Thompson
- Which team in the NFC East has the best safety tandem?
- Which has the worst?
- When you look at the safety position in the NFC East, who is the beastiest player in the division?
Five years from now, how are Redskins fans likely to think about the safety tandem of Cravens & Swearinger?

They restored pride to the Redskins safety position
One great player, one not-so-great
A competent pair of safeties
Two more "misses" in a long line of mistakes
Jeez... when will training camp start so I can stop reading all these lame 5 o’clock club poll questions?
