The Washington Redskins will have a busy off season with their number 1 priority is come to agreement with Kirk Cousins on a long-term deal.
The Redskins next priority will be needs to be their defensive line as they didn’t do much last off season to upgrade it, which needs a run-stopper or two.
There were only eight NFL teams that allowed more rushing yards in 2016-17 and if the Redskins want to be a genuine contender they need to build a Super Bowl winning defense.
Improving their defensive line is also a must and Washington have already indicated that there are 5 names on free agency that they are very interested in.
We take a look at the 5 players the Redskins have marked down as potential targets to bring to Washington in 2017.
Short’s numbers were down this season after the Panthers struggles defensively. He managed just 6 sacks, down from 11 the season before and made 30 solo tackles.
Short is a solid against the run and the pass and is the type of player the Redskins require to boost the defensive line.
Short is not a top tier defensive lineman, but he is capable of getting the job done at a discounted price from the other 4 name on this list.
