The Redskins enter the 2009 offseason with 10 unrestricted free agents and six restricted free agents on the roster.

The group of unrestricted free agents includes three players who ended last season as starters: left guard Pete Kendall, defensive end Demetric Evans and cornerback DeAngelo Hall.

Restricted free agents include a trio of 2006 late-round draft picks in defensive tackles Anthony Montgomery and Kedric Golston and safety Reed Doughty.

Free agency begins on Feb. 27.

Here's a look at the team's unrestricted and restricted free agents. (The Redskins have no exclusive rights free agents this year.)

-- UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS

Unrestricted free agents are free to sign with any NFL team, including the Redskins.

Ethan Albright, LS
Known for his bright red hair, Albright has quietly served as the team's long snapper on punts and field goals for the last eight seasons. In a job that gets little notice unless something goes wrong, Albright has been steady and reliable during his tenure in Washington.

Ryan Boschetti, DTBoschetti re-signed with the Redskins on Nov. 25 and saw action in four of the team's final five games. In five years with the Redskins, he has been a valued reserve who brings high energy and enthusiasm to the Redskins' defensive line.

Khary Campbell, LBCampbell is a capable fill-in at all three linebacker spots on defense, but his value has mostly been on special teams, where he has led the Redskins in tackles each of the last four seasons. He played in 14 games last season and posted 27 special teams tackles.

Phillip Daniels, DE
Daniels suffered a season-ending knee injury on the first day of training camp last year. He rehabbed the injury following surgery and hopes to come back in 2009. The 13-year NFL veteran has 59 career sacks.

Demetric Evans, DE
When Jason Taylor and Andre Carter were slowed by injuries last season, Evans stepped in at defensive end. He ended up starting 10 games, and recorded 47 tackles, five tackles for a loss and 3.5 sacks. Evans adds versatility to the line--the 7-year veteran can also move inside to play tackle.

Jason Fabini, OL
Fabini stepped in for an injured Jon Jansen and played two games at right tackle late last season. Fabini is an 11-year veteran who can play both guard and tackle.

Alfred Fincher, LBFincher joined the Redskins last training camp and earned a roster spot coming out of preseason. He played mostly on special teams, recording nine tackles. He saw spot duty as a reserve outside linebacker.

Mike Green, S
Green, a 9-year veteran, signed with the Redskins in mid-October and started two games at strong safety when Chris Horton was slowed by injuries. Green logged 23 tackles on the season.

DeAngelo Hall, CB
Hall was released by the Oakland Raiders midseason and he decided to sign with Washington on Nov. 9. He brought playmaking ability to the secondary. He started four of seven games for the Redskins and posted 25 tackles and two interceptions.

Pete Kendall, GFor the second year in a row, Kendall started all 16 games at left guard for the Redskins. The 13-year veteran joined with Chris Samuels to form a dominant left side of the offensive line. He helped the Redskins to the eighth-best rushing attack in the NFL.

-- RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS

Restricted free agents are players that the Redskins can tender a contract offer to prior to the start of free agency. Other NFL teams can sign the player to an offer sheet once free agency begins, but the Redskins can match the offer and retain the player. If the Redskins choose not to match, they can receive draft pick(s) as compensation depending on the tender offer.

Reed Doughty, S
Doughty started three of the Redskins' first five games, recording 18 tackles. He was slowed by a back injury after Week 5 and eventually placed on injured reserve. Doughty was a sixth-round draft pick by the Redskins in 2006.

Justin Geisinger, OL
Geisinger spent most of last season playing on special teams units. Then in Week 14 at Baltimore, he was pressed into duty at left and right tackle when starters Chris Samuels and Jon Jansen suffered knee injuries. Geisinger, a 3-year NFL veteran, suffered a knee injury of his own and was placed on injured reserve.

Kedric Golston, DT
Golston re-emerged as the Redskins' starter at defensive tackle. A high energy lineman, Golston was slowed late in the season by a foot injury. In 12 starts, Golston posted 37 tackles and two sacks. He was a sixth-round draft pick by the Redskins in 2006.

Anthony Montgomery, DT
Montgomery saw action as a run-stuffing defensive lineman, starting four games and recording 29 tackles last season. He added two sacks late in the year. Montgomery was a fifth-round draft pick by the Redskins in 2006.

Shaun Suisham, K
Suisham completed his second full season as the Redskins' place kicker. He connected on 26-of-36 field goals, including a season-long 50-yarder, and all of his PATs. He was just 12-of-20 from 40 yards or longer.

Rian Wallace, LB
Wallace suffered a dislocated shoulder injury during preseason and was eventually placed on injured reserve.
