That's the real question; is Perry Riley's leadership skills and understanding of the defense accelerating as rapidly as his physical play on the field did last season. If he's up to the task, we draft someone mid rounds for depth that may turn into the next Perry Riley. And Perry becomes the next London Fletcher.
I think he'll be fine. I think we have a player there for the next several years.

Anyone know why this guy didn't get on the field last year?

Byron Westbrook now a FA:

Byron Westbrook - Washington Redskins - 2012 Player Profile - Rotoworld.com

Quote:
The Redskins failed to tender restricted free agent CB Byron Westbrook, making him an unrestricted free agent.
Westbrook went undrafted back in 2007, but was picked up by Washington and has been there ever since. Brian's little brother spent his first two years on the practice squad, but has contributed on special teams and provided depth at corner over the last three seasons. There's a good chance he lands a camp invite despite the non-tender. Apr 5 - 3:47 PM

On a somewhat related note, I was listening to an interview with Patrick Willis on ESPN's Football Today podcast. And I was thinking that the 49ers must have the best ILB duo in the NFL in Willis and Navarro Bowman.
Absolutely...that crew is scary good.

Why would a parent name their kids Brian and Byron? Still confuses me!

He's got an offer from us.

I really wanted him a few years back, solid player and an even better person. Has had some tough injuries in recent years though and I'm not sure it makes sense to take a chance on both him and Cedric

Apparently the Redskins made Madieu Williams an offer...

John Keim ‏ @john_keim

Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency (and Trades) Tracker (Verse II)

No crystal ball here, but suppose this means we're looking for an RT with the 3rd round pick? If Fletch is back at ILB, Williams as a possible safety, Cedric / Merriweather -- seems like RT is the glaring unmet immediate need. Unfortunately a 3rd (or later) round rookie may not start this year anyway, so I hope we are able to get a viable solution more reliable than Yoga Brown..

We know Shanahan's great at picking late-round O-line gems, so with 6 late-round picks, I hope he can work some magic.

According to a report from The National Football Post, the Washington Redskins have offered a contract to the San Francisco 49ers' free agent safety Madiew Williams. The 30 year old safety played his 8th season in the league for the 49ers in 2012 after two longer stints with the Vikings and the Bengals. Williams played in 15 games for the 49ers but did not see heavy rotation, and he registered only 9 tackles, significantly fewer than in previous years.
The terms of the Redskins offer to Wiliams are unknown at this time. The 49ers defensive backfield has already seen some action this offseason: the team parted ways with Reggie Smith, who signed with the Carolina Panthers, and they applied the franchise tag to Dashon Golson. With depth at safety a concern for the team, if Williams leaves for Washington the team would likely be looking for safety help in the upcoming draft.

Re: 2012 Redskins Free Agency (and Trades) Tracker (Verse II)

Our secondary is underwhelming, to say the least. I don't know that we can hope to see any improvement over last year apart from, wait for it Tripp, significantly better play from Hall. I'm never certain of anything about Hall, except the fact he's got potential to be elite because he's shown (brief) flashes of brilliance. Seeing as how the offense hasn't had a bona fied star while Hall's been a "star" on defense, maybe the automatic attention toward Griffin has Hall preparing for his best season ever?

This is the precise reason Raheem Morris was hired as defensive backs coach. The front seven played hard nosed football all year last season. But the secondary was weak. Injuries to Atogwe and Landry made it possible for reserve safeties Gomes and Doughty to start and receive playing time. Also, Josh Morgan played well all year but came on strong towards the end of last season. DeAngelo Hall did play well at times, but struggled against elite wide receivers and revealed once again that he can only play his best football when he's not covering elite receivers. Had it not been for the secondary, the defense would have finished within the top ten in the league. Hopefully the addition of Morris will assist greatly in limiting passing yards.
