The NFL offseason really isn't an offseason. It's an opportunity for every team in the league to position themselves for bigger and better things in the regular season by making moves in free agency and in the NFL draft.
Talk of Fame Network's Rick Gosselin has a poll running right now, and he's asking, "Which NFL team had the best offseason?"
Gosselin has six teams in the poll, with the Washington Redskins being one of the teams involved along with Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Giants and Oakland Raiders.
Gosselin had this to say about what the Redskins have done so far this offseason:
"The Redskins were late spenders in free agency but were wise to sit on their money," Gosselin said. "That way they could afford Pro Bowl cornerback Josh Norman when he became free in April after the NFC champion Carolina Panthers lifted his franchise tag. Norman gives Washington someone who can line up against Dez Bryant and Odell Beckham Jr. one-on-one in division play. The Redskins used a premium draft pick on another cornerback, Jonathan Allen in the third round, and used a second-rounder on a deluxe defensive playmaker in linebacker Su'a Cravens. First-round draft pick Josh Doctson, an All-America wide receiver from TCU, makes Trent Williams a better quarterback walking in the door."
The Redskins are in a constant search for quality "football players" - a term general manager Scot McCloughan uses quite often when speaking on his football team. Sometimes McCloughan has to work beyond the normal business hours to get that talent, but to him, it's something he loves to do.
