Which free agent would you like to see the Redskins sign next?

So Brian Orakpo and Perry Riley are back in the fold, and former Arizona Cardinals WR Andre Roberts is expected to join Robert Griffin III and the offense as well. That’s a pretty good start to free agency.

The Redskins were estimated to have about $29 million to spend, and dedicated $11.45 million (as of now) to Orakpo. That left $18.6 million underneath the 2014 salary cap before Riley and Roberts are factored in, and there are still multiple needs: Safety, another inside linebacker, offensive line and an entire draft class.

Factor in cost, need and fit; If you could have your wish, which free agent would you most like to see Washington add? The poll lists the names the Redskins have been linked to over the past few days, but if you’ve got another wish, toss it out in the comments. We might be killing time until 4 p.m.
