The Washington Redskins drafted quarterback Dwayne Haskins in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft, but there is a need for a primary backup and a developmental prospect.
With the Washington Redskins now out of the playoff picture this season (truth be told, it has been that way for a few weeks), the offseason will become a primary focus for the front office in less than three weeks.
We’ve taken a recent look at wide receivers (although, that will be updated in the coming weeks) and a comprehensive look at tight ends last week. Presumably, the team has their starting quarterback for the foreseeable future in Dwayne Haskins, but a quality backup is needed, and it is good to have a developmental prospect on the bench as well.

Quarterback is not the pressing need that it was at this time last year, but some changes are needed. Case Keenum and Colt McCoy are not under contract following this season, and in all honesty, it is time to move on from both of these signal callers. Keenum has struggled mightily since his magical season with the Minnesota Vikings two years ago, and McCoy has labored unsuccessfully over the years at each of his three stops (Cleveland, San Francisco, Washington). Let’s take a look at the options available to the Redskins this winter and spring as free agency unfolds and the draft draws closer.
