For the Redskins, spending on a quarterback might not make the most sense given Alex Smith’s cap hit and needs elsewhere. But if it’s affordable, Bridgewater coming to town and competing for a starting gig would be a win-win for both sides.
In addition to that third-rounder, Washington also netted a fifth-rounder, a sixth-rounder and a seventh-rounder, too. The four picks is a bit of a surprise, as most expected the Burgundy and Gold would be awarded with only three.
The Colts have more than $107 million in cap space. The Jets have $102 million in space. There are eight other teams with at least $50 million in cap space.
If Washington can double their cap space, that would still be less than $35 million.
WASHINGTON REDSKINS: Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State. The Redskins might look to add to their pass rush in the first round, but receiver will be on their radar. Campbell has outstanding speed and may be able to transcend how he was used at Ohio State -- often as a catch-and-run target rather than a downfield receiver -- but the combine could play a big part in determining that.
