Every NFL team has a few bad apples in starting roles, and the Washington Redskins are no exception. Whether due to financial constraints, losses to free agency or declines in performance, there are always going to be subpar starters on NFL rosters. That’s just the nature of the beast, but that doesn’t mean that teams should get complacent.

When it comes to the Redskins, there are a number of players currently sitting in starting roles who probably shouldn’t be. Most of them have spent at least the last year or two in that position, and failed miserably to fulfill their duties to a respectable degree. I know there will be some folks who disagree with my choices, but the on-field performance and analytics tell a story of inefficiency.

If you don’t believe me, refer to ProFootballFocus–one of the football world’s most trusted analytical tools.

So here they are–the five worst starters currently on the Redskins roster. And these players do not include pending free agents, for those of you who may be wondering. The list only consists of players who are under contract in 2016 and are currently slated to fill starting roles (before free agency and the 2016 NFL Draft, obviously).
