Redskins Need to Boost Defensive line
The Redskins know that one of their weakest spots on the team is the defensive line. Last season they got absolutely gashed against the run which allowed opponents to pretty much do whatever they want.
The Redskins have already been linked to Eagles Bernie Logan who would certainly help a lot, but it will require a lot more than one person to turn this unit around. The Skins have multiple free agents of their own on the D line with the biggest name being Chris Baker.
Baker has done a good job for the Skins so it wouldn’t be surprising to see them bring him back. There are also very good free agents available such as Dontari Poe and Kawann Short, but they will be very expensive. The NFL draft is very deep this year when it comes to the defensive line so McCloughan will most likely decide to get his D linemen via the draft. Whoever the Skins decide to draft or sign their defensive line play can’t get much worse than last year.
