While I know many Redskins fans expect Guice to come in and have the impact that Zeke Elliott and Saquon Barkley have had in the division, those expectations should be tempered. Long term he has the talent and upside to be a top 10 running back in this league. This year though I think it’s likely the Redskins ease him into his role.

With the Redskins uncertain LG situation he could end up their best option. A big plus for Wisniewski is that in his 8 year career, he’s only missed 5 games total due to injury. That type of track record has to be welcome to an offensive line group that has been decimated these past two years.

He fits best as a 3rd safety who earns snaps in sub packages and backing up a variety of roles. For the Redskins though he would likely push for the starting free safety job. He doesn’t get talked about a lot, but he would be a nice addition to the team, who’s versatility could become a major plus.
