Redskins Free Agency Rumors: Pernell McPhee to Sign with Redskins

The Redskins are likely to sign their Murphy/Galette replacement

NFL: Carolina Panthers at Chicago Bears Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

UPDATE: We almost have a signing update

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.

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?
