UPDATE: We almost have a signing update
Pernell McPhee expected to finalize deal with #Redskins today, per sources. Outside linebacker will help in pass rush and set run edge.— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) March 26, 2018
The Redskins and Falcons are the two teams rumored to be in play for outside linebacker Pernell McPhee. It is being reported by Jordan Schultz that McPhee is likely to sign with the Redskins.
Pernell McPhee has informed the #Falcons that he plans to sign with the #Redskins, per a source. Not a certainty that the edge rusher will head to Washington, but it certainly looks that way.— Jordan Schultz (@Schultz_Report) March 25, 2018
Nothing official yet. Does sound like this is where it's headed but nothing signed. https://t.co/pfQvdBf3lt— John Keim (@john_keim) March 25, 2018
It was reported that McPhee received a contract offer after a Monday visit to team headquarters. Later in the week it was reported that the Skins withdrew their previous contract offer to Junior Galette, making McPhee even more of a priority signing.
If McPhee does indeed end up signing in DC, he will likely back up Ryan Kerrigan and Preston Smith at outside linebacker for the Redskins. Second-year OLB Ryan Anderson will also try to earn playing time this season.
How do you feel about the Redskins signing McPhee?

I love it - He’ll be a valuable contributor
Meh - He’s just another guy
Depends on the contract
