The Washington Football Team is likely taking a detailed look at each position this offseason and deciding how free agency can fill some gaps or add quality depth.  Today’s focus is free safeties.

NFL free agency promptly arrives on March 17 at 4 p.m. ET – don’t forget to set your clocks an hour forward a few days earlier!  You don’t want to miss the frenzied opening hours of free agency!  Deals will be announced within minutes and the Washington Football Team could be an active participant this time around.

Free agency arrives in about seven weeks and it will be here before anyone can say “Dak, Shaq, Godwin, Robinson, and Thuney – please”!

Will Washington be active in free agency or will they take a low-key journey through all of the frenzied madness in March?  With the favorable salary cap space that the Burgundy and Gold possess this offseason, it is probably a safe bet to see an active approach.

The front office could also free up a lot of cap space with the release of Alex Smith and a player or two that has a bloated contract.  So let’s assume Washington will be active and take these articles in that direction.

Today, we begin a winter series that will put each team position under the Riggo’s Rag microscope and examine which athletes could grace the Washington Football Team roster this fall.

Our first position to consider is the free safeties that could be available in March.  It is definitely a team need and Washington could be looking at a top-level defender and some quality depth as well.  We’ll divide each set of players in these articles between the upper tier, middle tier, and lower tier.

One item to note:  Strong safety is not a need this offseason. The position is well manned with a breakout rookie, a solid veteran, and quality depth.  There will likely be no changes or additions from free agency.
