The Washington Redskins haven’t exactly plugged the hole they have at left guard this offseason. That said, they have added some intriguing undrafted free agents to compete on the interior offensive line and one of them is Casey Dunn.
One of the primary holes that the Washington Redskins had on the offensive side of the ball coming into the 2018 offseason was at left guard. It was widely assumed that the team was going to move on from the ineffective Shawn Lauvao. Instead, the team re-signed Lauvao after the 2018 NFL Draft and he was expected to compete with some of the younger players on the roster.
Chiefly, Arie Kouandjio was expected to challenge Lauvao. However, Kouandjio injured his quad and he will be out indefinitely. He did have surgery on the injury and it’s possible that he could return in September. But for now, relying on him would be a mistake.
Elsewhere, there was some buzz about Sean Welsh, who had signed with the Redskins as an undrafted free agent. However, after one day of rookie minicamp, he elected to retire as he didn’t have the desire to play any longer. Thus, Welsh isn’t an option.
However, following rookie minicamp, a new player came into focus. That would be former Auburn center Casey Dunn. Dunn had come in as a tryout player, but he was signed to the 90-man roster after impressing. There’s a chance that if he plays well, he could be the next Welsh: a potential depth lineman who would be a solid practice squader at the least.
With that said, here’s all the information that you need to know about the newest member of the Redskins.
