Deshazor Everett won’t be leaving Washington this offseason.

Everett was set to be a restricted free agent after completing his third season with the Redskins, but the team announced on Tuesday that he has agreed to a multi-year deal instead. No financial terms were announced.

Everett signed as an undrafted free agent in 2015 and has played 41 games over his three years in Washington. He made the first eight starts of his career during the 2017 season and ended the year with 62 tackles and a forced fumble. In addition to his defensive work, Everett also saw the third-most special teams snaps last season.

In addition to announcing the Everett extension, the Redskins also announced that running backs Dare Ogunbowale and Kenny Hilliard and tackle Kevin Bowen have been waived.

  1. Oh man……this guy was gonna have interest from all over the league! This, coupled with Alex Smith, makes Washington a contender. Look out Patriots!

  2. I’m surprised the kept him – he was competent and played far above his pay grade. This team collects worthless veterans on defense like the island of misfit (and injured) clowns.

    They sure do!!! Or did anyways way back 15 years ago. Wake up man, they haven’t done what you claim in years. They been letting the older players go and sign young players. They haven’t went after first day FA in years either but instead waited till the higher priced ones sign and then get dept players. Out of the small FA class from last year, only one didn’t pan out and that was the DT/DE from Dallas. He was hurt a lot.
