Saturday, June 10th, 2017

Coming into the offseason the Redskins’ top priority was to improve their defense, especially the line. They signed free agents Terrell McClain and Stacy McGee and drafted Jonathan Allen in the first round. Ziggy Hood re-signed, getting a two-year deal. It should be noted that there also were subtractions, notably the departure of Chris Baker as a free agent and the release of Ricky Jean Francois.
