The Washington Redskins announced the re-signing of safety Deshazor Everett to a new, mult-year deal yesterday. Everett was a restricted free agent, and was expected to get a new deal with the team after starting 8 games last season, and having career highs in tackles(62), passes defended(5), and forced fumbles(1). Everett was forced into a starting role due to injuries to rookie Montae Nicholson, and veteran DeAngelo Hall who was ineffective upon returning to the field.

The Redskins secondary will look different this season after trading slot CB Kendall Fuller for QB Alex Smith, and the likely departure of starting CB Bashaud Breeland. Free agent DeAngelo Hall is expected to retire after several injury-filled seasons at the end of his career. Su’a Cravens was supposed to make the switch to safety from linebacker last season, but ended up missing the season due a near-retirement. There have been trade rumors with him going to the Broncos in a trade, but Jay Gruden said they were not trading him at the Combine.

The Redskins have one other RFA left to re-sign, OT Ty Nsekhe. There are several more free agents the team could look to re-sign, along with several young players that need contract extensions. JP Finley reports that the Redskins are starting talks with at least two other free agents.

The Redskins also released RBs Kenny Hilliard, Dare Ogunbowale and tackle Kevin Bowen.
