Report: Perrish Cox To Visit Redskins

Cornerback Perrish Cox, an unrestricted free agent who has played for the Broncos, Seahawks and 49ers, had a career-best five interceptions in San Francisco last season.

Five-year veteran cornerback Perrish Cox is scheduled to visit with the Washington Redskins on Wednesday, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports.


Cox, an Oklahoma State product, is coming off a career year with the San Francisco 49ers, collecting five interceptions and 17 passes defensed to go along with 53 tackles. Cox on Tuesday officially became an unrestricted free agent.

Cox was a fifth-round (137th-overall) pick of the Denver Broncos in the 2010 NFL Draft. In his rookie season, he had a career-best 58 tackles and logged his first-career interception and forced two fumbles.

Cox moved on to the 49ers in 2012, playing in 16 games, before splitting time between the Seattle Seahawks (two games) and 49ers (nine games), again, in 2013.

The Redskins are looking to add depth to a cornerback corps that had its ups and downs during the 2014 season, when veteran DeAngelo Hall was lost for the year after suffering a torn Achilles Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Hall recently restructured his contract to return to the Redskins.

Washington in 2015 also returns David Amerson, Bashaud Breeland and Tracy Porter at the cornerback position.
