The Washington Football Team announced a couple of changes to the makeup of their cornerback group on Wednesday.

They have placed Darryl Roberts on injured reserve and signed Corn Elder off of the Panthers’ practice squad.

Elder was a Panthers fifth-round pick in 2017, so he’s a familiar face to head coach Ron Rivera and the other former Carolina coaches that are now on the Washington staff. He had stints with the Giants in 2019 and the Lions this offseason, but returned to the Panthers each time.

Elder has played 30 regular season games, including all 16 of the Panthers’ games last season. He has 43 tackles, three passes defensed, and a forced fumble in those appearances.

Roberts played 30 special teams snaps over the last games for Washington. He injured his quad in last Sunday’s loss to the Saints.

  1. Who? What? Any football fan with football acumen can tell you what the problem is, let’s go back to last year, the WFT was having the same issue that is until Landon Collins got hurt, insert Kam Curl and then Deshazor Everett and suddenly the backend and front seven were better. Until they make changes at both Safety spots the problems will linger, also the target on a majority of the 3rd down plays are at Kendall Fuller who’s getting beat on the regular, even last year. On offense Turner needs to really do a better job of play calling, no matter the team/defense they always seem to know what’s coming.
