NFL Free Agency is just around the corner, and the Washington Redskins are busy preparing for what should be one of the biggest offseasons in the team’s recent history. There are a number of key players set to hit free agency, and several positions that must be addressed before the 2016 campaign gets under way.

So what should we be expecting to see from the Redskins? Are they going to roll the dice and hope to rebuild during free agency, or will they play it safe and hope they can find a few capable contributors via the draft like they did last year? Or maybe they’ll do a mix of both with the hope of adding enough talent to stay atop the NFC East in 2016.

Either way, it’s sure to be an exciting offseason for one of the NFC’s most intriguing teams.

With that in mind, I’ve decided to take a look at the Redskins’ five biggest needs as we head towards free agency and which players could fill those needs. These five players I’ve highlighted are, in my opinion, the perfect fits for what the Redskins are looking for. They may not be the biggest names (although some are rather noteworthy), but they’d be just what the doctor ordered for Washington given their current roster concerns.
