What the Redskins should do with their free agent offensive linemen
Other offensive line notes
The Redskins current starters that are under contract for next season on the offensive line are center Chase Roullier and right tackle Morgan Moses. This doesn’t include Trent Williams, who still has one year remaining on his deal.
Speaking of Williams, it seems likely that the team will trade him during the offseason after abstaining from doing so ahead of the 2019 NFL trade deadline. The Redskins may be able to squeeze a second-round pick out of a team, similar to the Texans-Seahawks Duane Brown trade of 2017 (the Texans got a second and third in exchange for Brown and a fifth). Interested teams could include the Cleveland Browns and the Los Angeles Rams.
Among backups, the Redskins will return 2019 draft picks Wes Martin (fourth round) and Ross Pierschbacher (fifth round). Martin has played 15 percent of the team’s offensive snaps this year while Pierschbacher has logged only 12 total snaps, all on special teams.
Geron Christian, a 2018 third-round pick, also seems likely to return to the team. He has played in 15.3 percent of the team’s offensive snaps as the primary swing tackle this season.
The 2020 NFL Draft class is thought to be strong at the tackle position. Among the potential first-round options for the Redskins are Georgia’s Andrew Thomas, USC’s Austin Jackson, Iowa’s Tristan Wirfs, and Louisville’s Mehki Becton.
