Update: Contract details

Update: Officially Official

Washington has added another veteran cap casualty in May who could end up starting Week 1. Charles Leno and Bobby McCain both had visits with the team on Monday, and now both are signed to 1-year deals with the team. Leno's deal is worth $5 million. We haven't seen details on McCain contract, but he reportedly wanted more than what he was initially offered. Playing in this defense is likely a ticket to a bigger payday next season which was likely how he was sold on coming here.

McCain steps into a good situation here, but the team still has a lot of moving parts at safety. Starting SS Landon Collins tore his Achilles in October and is coming along in his recovery, but how much will he play to start the season? Kamren Curl was a revelation when he started after Collins went down, and Jack Del Rio has said there is a place for him in this defense. Troy Apke started at FS last season, but will be fighting for a roster spot this year after being replaced for performance. Deshazor Everrett played well until his season ended with a shoulder injury. Jeremy Reaves was up next and both will return to fight for a spot.

Bobby McCain was originally drafted by the Miami Dolphins in 2015 as a CB, and played that position for 4 years before switching to safety in 2019. He started 15 games at free safety for Miami last year and was a team captain.
