Remember last offseason when everyone lauded the Redskins for being relatively conservative on the free agent market?
Yeah, don’t expect that to happen again.
“We prepared for various options and will be able to be as aggressive as any team in the league based on what the rules are,” Redskins G.M. Bruce Allen told Mike Jones of the Washington Post.
This hardly comes as a surprise. We passed along a note from Jones previously that the Redskins were “champing at the bit” to spend big dollars. They certainly have plenty of places to spend their dough.
We haven’t done the Redskins post-draft team checklist yet, but there are still holes on the team at quarterback, cornerback, running back, wide receiver, and the defensive line. (You could arguably throw offensive line in the mix too.)
An annual contender for the NFL offseason championship, Washington may very well be the favorite this year. They just have to wait longer than usual.
