Free Agency Fits: Calais Campbell To The Redskins?


With preparation for 2017 season well underway and hefty cap space at their hands, the Washington Redskins are taking deep consideration into veterans and their free agency.

While we all know the Redskins have their own free agency decisions to make when it comes to key players such as quarterback Trent Williams and wide receivers Rob Kelley and Jamison Crowder, outsourcing is definitely still an option.

ESPN Insider proposes that Washington takes this time as an opportunity to bulk up its defensive line and knows just the player for the job, Arizona Cardinals' defensive end Calais Campbell.  

Along with Chris Baker and Ziggy Hood, Campbell is another defensive end headed into the free agent market, and a good one at that. Campbell has spent nine seasons with the Cardinals recording at least five sacks in each of the last eight seasons.

"He ranks among the best interior defensive linemen every year, and he finished 2016 with a 90.4 overall grade that ranked second," ESPN Insider writes. "Adding Campbell to Washington's defensive front would be a game-changer for the entire defense."

This past season alone, Campbell registered eight sacks, 53 tackles and two forced fumbles for the Cardinals.
