Redskins Reality Checks: Pre-draft roadmap for team to follow
By Tim Payne
The Washington Redskins have made some changes this offseason but they’ll need to make key decisions in the coming months to complete their rebuild. Here’s a roadmap for them to follow ahead of that.
Every NFL team’s offseason is a series of decisions. Some are easy, some are difficult. But to properly navigate the labyrinth is the essential work of team-building.
The Redskins have gotten off to a good start this offseason, but there are plenty of decisions to go even prior to the NFL draft. Here’s my roadmap for the remainder of the pre-draft offseason.
The theme of these decisions across the board is this: if a guy won’t be a contributor in 2021 and 2022, then I’m not signing him or keeping him significant money for 2020. Even if that means the team is left with a big hole for 2020. The transformation and overhaul isn’t going to all happen in one year, so the team can’t reach for older players this year.
With that said, it’s time for another edition of Redskins Reality Checks.
