The overhaul began last week, but more moves could follow as Redskins officials work to make their defensive front more disruptive.
The Redskins have re-signed tight end/special teams ace Niles Paul to a three-year contract, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed.
Orakpo said he thinks much of the off-field issues with the Redskins were taken out of context, and he said that Griffin, despite finding himself at the center of controversy often last season, is well respected in the locker room. But Orakpo does believe the quarterback is often misunderstood.
Washington cleared cap space by cutting two defensive line, and left itself short on depth. Here's a run-stuffing nose tackle they could sign.

Washington brings back an exclusive-rights free agent, giving them three safeties on the roster.
