Washington Redskins Offseason Needs, Team Headquarters Page


After trading an arm and a leg to get Robert Griffin III with the second overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Redskins decided to let go of head coach Mike Shanahan and move on with former Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden.

The Redskins, as a result of the RG3 trade, don’t have a first round pick this year, so it was no surprise when they were one of the most active teams on the free agent market when the new league year opened, though they haven’t broken the bank for anyone yet.

Player Movement (Free Agency)

Players Lost

  • RB Davin Meggett (Waived)
  • RB Jawan Jamison (Waived)
  • TE Richard Quinn (Released)
  • P Sav Rocca (Released)
  • DL Adam Carriker (Released)
  • C Will Montgomery (Released)
  • DE Daryl Tapp (UFA, Lions)

Players Added

  • LB Brian Orakpo (Franchise Tag)
  • CB DeAngelo Hall (Re-signed)
  • DT Chris Baker (Re-signed)
  • LB Adam Hayward (Re-signed)
  • LB Perry Riley (Re-signed)
  • WR Santana Moss (Re-signed)
  • WR Andre Roberts (UFA)
  • OG Shaun Lauvao (UFA)
  • OT Bruce Campbell (UFA)
  • CB Tracy Porter (UFA)
  • DL Clifton Geathers (UFA)
  • DL Jason Hatcher (UFA)

Team Needs

1. Cornerback

DeAngelo Hall has been re-signed and Tracy Porter was brought in, but the Redskins are far from done re-loading at this position. With David Amerson coming up, they are still going to need to plan on adding another young CB or two and could do so via one of their top draft picks.

2. Defensive Line

Adding Jason Hatcher and Clifton Geathers helps, but the Redskins’ defensive front was crushed last season. They need to look to some day two and three upgrades.

3. Linebacker

Perry Riley was brought back, and Daryl Sharpton was added. I think the Redskins can get by there but we’ll see if they choose to add another player or two via the draft.

4. Wide Receiver

5. Safety

6. Punter

7. Pass Rush Linebacker

    It looks like the wild card at LB is Adam Hayward who I thought we signed from Tampa and he is not someone we resigned. He is known as a special teams ace and a fill in but some believe he can start, only time will tell.
