Here is a free agency recap for the Washington Redskins. The Redskins big move actually came the week of the Super Bowl, as they traded for QB Alex Smith, sending CB Kendall Fuller and a third round pick to Kansas City. After acquiring him, the team then signed Smith to a 4 year/$94M extension. This was a horrible move, as Washington should’ve looked to go into rebuild mode with the departure of QB Kirk Cousins. Or, they could’ve given Cousins the money he’s wanted, and kept one of their top young defensive players. With 5 first round quarterbacks, it made a lot more sense for the Redskins to look into draft to find their new franchise QB. Their biggest signing was signing WR Paul Richardson to a 5 year/$40M Deal. Sure Richardson is talented, but he’s been inconsistent and has dealt with several injuries, so this wasn’t a good investment by Washington. One good move the Redskins made was signing DE/OLB Pernell McPhee to a one year deal worth less than $2M. McPhee gives Washington a veteran presence with a very young d line, and provides excellent depth if Washington once again suffers with injuries. Speaking of depth, G/C Matt Slauson would’ve provided the Redskins with much needed depth on the offensive line. With how weak the Redskins are at left guard and center, there is a could chance he would start for them. He came at a cheap price, but still the Redskins couldn’t sign him. They did sign CB Orlando Scandrick to a 2 year/$10M Deal. While it may not seem like a big deal now, if Scandrick can somehow regain his old form as a #1 corner, then this can turn into a major steal for the Redskins. Until then though, this is actually a slight overpay. Overall, the Redskins committed to extreme mediocrity this offseason with the move to trade for Alex Smith and sign him to an extension, which is the worst place for a team to be.
