NFL: Washington Redskins at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Wednesday officially kicked off the start of NFL free agency, and the Redskins spent big money early. But, this time it feels different. Safety has been a glaring need for Washington for quite some time, and Landon Collins addresses that need in a big, big way. Additionally, looking deeper into the contract, it’s a huge for the Redskins. In episode three of The Counter Trey, we look at the numbers and why his addition fits perfect for what the Redskins need.

Also in this week’s episode, we delve into why Case Keenum is actually a perfect fit for what the Redskins right now, but recognize that long term answers at QB still need to be addressed.

After the first day of open free agency, how do you grade the Redskins moves thus far?
