In the coming months, the Washington Redskins will look to trim down their 90-man roster ahead of the impending regular season. Every year, we see a number of unheralded players find their way onto the final roster. Who could be this year’s unheralded surprise? In this segment, we’ll take a look at ILB Zach Vigil.
The Redskins have made quite a few changes to their defensive lineup thus far in the offseason. Relative to the other areas of the defense, the position of inside linebacker has largely been left alone. The team signed Pro Bowler Zach Brown, and acquired hybrid Josh Harvey-Clemons in the NFL Draft, but also sent Su’a Cravens to the secondary, removing a consistent contributor from 2016.
Right now, the lineup at inside linebacker appears to be Brown and Mason Foster as starters, followed by Will Compton and Martrell Spaight as backups. However, there are many players in line behind them, anxious for an opportunity to prove themselves.
One of those players is Zach Vigil. We haven’t heard much about Vigil, but by the end of the offseason, we could hear about him as one of the 53 players on the final roster.
