Talk Of Fame Network Votes Redskins' Offseason As The Best


Last week, Talk of Fame Network's Rick Gosselin created a poll asking "Which NFL team had the best offseason?" between the Washington Redskins, Oakland Raiders, New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans and Cleveland Browns.

The poll came to a close on Tuesday, and Washington came out on top by a wide margin.

The Redskins got 78 percent of the vote, followed by the Raiders who got just 13 percent. The Jaguars, Browns, Texans and Giants rounded out the voting.

Gosselin made note of how the Redskins strengthened their secondary during the offseason, both through free agency and the draft.

"The Redskins struck late, signing Pro Bowl cornerback Josh Norman away from NFC-champion Carolina after the Panthers lifted his franchise tag in April," Gosselin said. "He immediately provides some teeth to a secondary that finished 25th in the NFL in pass defense. Norman will come in handy when the Redskins line up against Odell Beckham Jr. and the New York Giants and Dez Bryant and the Dallas Cowboys."

"The Redskins also drafted Virginia Tech cornerback Jonathan Allen in the third round for that secondary," Gosselin said.

Gosselin also pointed out what general manager Scot McCloughan did in the draft to make an already potent offense that much more potent.

"Washington finished 11th in the NFL in passing last season with an emerging Trent Williams taking the snaps, and the Redskins made the task of quarterbacking easier by giving him one of the best receivers in college football, Josh Doctson of TCU, with their first-round draft pick," Gosselin said.
