Jordan Reed lobbies to keep the offense together in Washington

Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins and receivers DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon will all be free agents next month, and one of their teammates is lobbying to keep the team intact.

Tight end Jordan Reed said on SiriusXM NFL Radio that the top priority should be keeping the players already on the team.

“I think first of all, we got to bring Kirk back,” Reed said, via the Washington Post. “We got to bring Kirk back. We got to bring two of our most valuable weapons back — Pierre and D-Jax — for us to have a shot. So, I think we need to bring those guys back and add a couple more pieces on defense, and I think we’ll be right were we need to be.”

Cousins is expected to be back, but it seems unlikely that both Garcon and Jackson will return. Washington is set to have at least some turnover in its passing game this year.

    Fans do not know what is going on in the organization because Bruce won’t let Scott speak!

    Couple pieces on defense? They need help at every level of the defense.

    I don’t think Reed realizes there is a salary cap

    They need new impact players at every level of the defense. Need a DE, NT, ILB and FS at minimum. I would pick the DE, ILB and FS in the draft. NT can come in free agency (Jonathan Hankins or Bennie Logan). But I would still draft a backup NT late. Youth brings speed, which is the main problem on defense.

    He has no idea which members of the D are going to be back and which ones will be replaced. The ones that arent replaced will still be in the locker room with him. He cannot say the entire defense needs to be replaced for that reason alone. Also, you should never be a negotiator or a politician.

    They could restock that D a lot faster if they gave up the 3-4 and man coverage they ran last season. Its really tough finding personnel for that style defense.
