Washington the latest to kick the tires on Donte Whitner

Donte Whitner hasn’t found work yet, but it’s not for a lack of trying.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the veteran safety is working out for Washington.

His most recent trip was to see the Giants, who were running low in the secondary but didn’t make a move prior to last night’s game. They’re apparently still considering what to do there.

Whitner also worked out for the Panthers just before the start of the regular season, and they also didn’t sign him. The Rams had some interest this offseason but they didn’t sign him either.

The Browns cut the former Pro Bowl safety in April, and the fact he hasn’t signed could point to the fact he’s looking for something beyond the veteran minimum and no one seems inclined to pay it.

    It will only be a matter of time (and injuries) before someone comes ready to pay more than the veteran minimum

    Sign him and Pot Roast. The only bright spot on this defense is Norman. This defense needs help. HTTR.

    The Redskins could use another veteran back there. The Detroit team should be kicking those tires also.

    Will DHall down it would be a good signing. He’s lost a step but he is probably still better than half the starting safeties. If they have the cap room and he is healthy why not?

    Don’t kick his tires too hard. You’ll have to put him on the IR.

    The defense appears to be being coached by Jim Zorn.
