The Washington Redskins invited 46 tryout players to their rookie minicamp. They could find some quality players in that bunch.
Every year, NFL teams bring a lot of players into their rookie minicamps on a tryout basis. Usually, they are younger players who have either been in the league for a year or so and haven’t stuck around. But all of them have potential. And every year, players from these tryouts end up making the 90-man rosters of teams.
Last year, the Washington Redskins brought in almost 40 players to compete, and they eventually signed Tevin Homer, Nico Marley, and Manasseh Garner to their 90-man roster. None made the final squad, but Garner did make the practice squad. So, some value can certainly be found in this market.
For 2018, the Redskins have brought in a whopping 46 players to their rookie minicamp. That is a ridiculous amount of players, but it’s good that the team will be scouting potential depth, in case injuries become a problem once again. With that said, here’s a look at three of the invitees who could have a shot at making the 90-man roster.
