The Redskins are extremely thin at the cornerback position. Second-year man Bashaud Breeland had a good season. Good enough to be named the Riggo’s Rag – Redskins Defensive Player of the Year. He continues to improve but the the other starter Chris Culliver was lost for the season with a torn ACL.
It’s also possible that Culliver might not be back for the Redskins 2016 as he could become a cap casualty. DeAngelo Hall for now is no longer a corner as he transitioned to strong safety late in the season when injuries hit the Redskins there.

Veteran Will Blackmon played well for the Redskins in place of Culliver and Hall but he’s a free agent this offseason and may not be back. The Skins also got a good performance down the stretch from rookie Quinton Dunbar and his development continues.
But if Culliver is released and Blackmon not re-signed then the Redskins will need to add more bodies at cornerback. There are some intriguing options at the position in NFL free agency and I expect Scot McCloughan to add a free agent to unit this offseason.
