Redskins: Five free agents to watch on Day 2 of legal tampering
By Ian Cummings
No. 1 – WR Tyrell Williams
The Redskins are one of many teams still in the hunt for former Chargers wide receiver Tyrell Williams. For now, their free agency priority seems to be defense, but after letting Jamison Crowder go on Day 1 of legal tampering, they have a need for a starting receiver, and Williams is still available.
Williams, standing at 6-foot-4, 205, would bring the Redskins an enticing combination of speed and size, but at a price. He hit the 1,000-yard mark back in 2016, and teams know that if he’s in the right situation, he can do it again.
In a deep, but top-light free agent wide receiver class, Williams naturally rises to the top with his unique skill set, and the Redskins, ever needy for a dynamic offensive talent, could find themselves allured to Williams, no matter how pricey he might become after a bidding war.
Keep an eye on Williams, and the rest of the free agent field, as the legal tampering period progresses. The Redskins are not done yet. Not even close.
