Redskins: 3 wide receivers to target on the free agent market in 2018
The Washington Redskins could use a true No. 1 receiver. The 2018 free agent market will bear some fruitful options if the team chooses to pursue them.
This offseason is a big one for the receivers of the 2014 NFL Draft. In what will likely be regarded as one of the greatest receiver drafts in the history of the NFL, 11 of the first 12 receivers selected have turned into quality starters and many have been true No. 1 wide-outs. In the 2018 offseason, a good amount of them will be free agents.
Four years after the class came into the league, many of the top receivers are set to hit the free agent market. And this is music to the ears of the receiver needy Redskins. One year after letting two of their top receivers walk in free agency, the team needs a real replacement for their No. 1 option. Terrelle Pryor didn’t pan out as an acquisition, so he will likely be let go after his one-year deal expires.
That said, the Redskins should look into putting some of their available cap space to their receiving corps. Here’s a look at the three receivers, all from the 2014 class, that they should look into selecting.
