Inside Linebacker:

Free agent signings: Akeem Jordan, Darryl Sharpton, Adam Hayward

We need a replacement for London Fletcher who retired at the end of last season. We signed Akeem Jordan, Darryl Sharpton and Adam Hayward so we have bodies there to fill in, but is there a standout replacement amongst that lot?  All have started games at one point or another, but are mostly backups.

Sharpton may have the most upside of the group, but will he be able to make up for what the Redskins lost in even an aging London Fletcher?  It remains to be seen.  Those three, plus third year man Keenan Robinson may have to do it by committee.

If coaches think it’s not enough combined with the re-signed Perry Riley, then the Skins may spend a high pick on finding a new tackling machine.
