Benson Mayowa set for Washington visit

Defensive end Benson Mayowa was released by the Cowboys, but he may wind up staying in the NFC East.

John Keim of ESPN.com reports that Mayowa will be in Washington for a visit on Tuesday. That’s the second meeting with a defensive lineman that the Redskins have lined up as Muhammad Wilkerson is set to visit with the team as well.

Mayowa had six of his nine career sacks for the Cowboys in 2016, but slipped to one during the 2017 season. He’s also played for the Seahawks and Raiders since entering the NFL in 2013.

If Mayowa does land a job in D.C., it will likely come with a change in position to outside linebacker in their 3-4 base defense. With Junior Galette and Trent Murphy set for free agency, that spot could become a bigger need for the team in the coming days.

  1. Eagles still making moves, giants making moves , redskins making moves, niners making moves, rams making moves and meanwhile jerry jones holds court from happy hour every day while his overhyped, overrated team falls farther and farther behind

    Lol. The “defending” NFC East champ Redskins finished 7-9, and Dallas finished with a winning record despite losing their starting RB for 6 games and all the injuries on the O-line and secondary.

    And if you are a Philthy fan, why troll around on other team threads, Bro? Remember the Cowboys lead the Lombardi count – 5 trophies to your 1.

    Now go get your shine box…..

  6. Our defense finished 8th in the NFL, how was that garbage? This while fielding an all rookie secondary.
    bash all you want but 9-7 is a winning record period. 31 other teams didnt win the super bowl either,
    so whats your point? Besides we already signed the TOP RATED defensive player in this years FA class.
    We call him DLAW! So how did we just sit idle?
    Just sayn hate all you want, but at least hate with knowledge.

  7. there are dumb ideas….then there are ridiculous ideas…..and then there is this idea of bringing in another Dallas Cowboy free agent to D.C.. No more comments necessary.
