The Washington Redskins are heading into what could end up being a very interesting offseason. Ron Rivera has taken over as the team’s head coach and has made it clear that things will be changing. It is about time someone wants to instill a winning culture.
Over the past few years, the Redskins have been mired in either mediocrity or struggle. The same was the case in 2019 as the team finished the year with a 3-13 record. Now, there are plenty of directions the franchise could choose to go.
Looking ahead at the offseason, the Redskins could choose to get competitive and try to make moves to improve or they could rebuild slowly through the draft. Either option would make sense, but Rivera isn’t the kind of coach that is willing to settle for a slow rebuild.
More than likely, the Redskins will be looking to make additions that will help them compete as soon as possible. If that is the direction they choose to go, the cornerback position is something they need to focus on. It was a major weakness in 2019.
Perhaps Josh Norman could come back and play a key role in 2020 for the Redskins under his former head coach. He certainly had a lot of success with Rivera back in his days with the Carolina Panthers. However, the Redskins cannot rely on Norman solely.
All of that being said, let’s take a look at three players the Redskins could target this offseason at the cornerback position in free agency or the NFL Draft.
