Day 2 of NFL free agency came and went without the Washington Redskins adding another piece to the puzzle. The team officially signed defensive lineman Stephen Paea, and otherwise hosted a pair of players of interest.
Cornerback Perrish Cox spent the early part of the day at Redskins Park, but he left without a deal and now reportedly will visit with the Tennessee Titans.
Defensive lineman Terrance Knighton arrived later in the day and was expected to continue his visit this morning.
Cornerback Brandon Browner also is scheduled to pay Redskins Park a visit today or tomorrow.
Meanwhile, another safety came off the market as Chicago signed Antrel Rolle to a three-year deal, according to ESPN. Rolle told reporters that his decision came down to the Redskins and Bears, however, it’s unclear how far off Washington was on its offer.
Rahim Moore remains as the top available safety. And Marcus Gilchrist, who drew interest from Washington over the weekend, Louis Delmas, Stevie Brown, Dawan Landry, Nate Allen and Ron Parker all remain unsigned as well.
The action on the right tackle front slowed dramatically on Wednesday. Joe Barksdale, Byron Bell, Ryan Harris, Jake Long and Anthony Collins all remain unsigned, as was the case yesterday.
Eventually Washington has to make some signings because it’s impossible to meet all of their needs through this year’s draft. But they’re determined to let the market come to them rather than overpay, which marks a breaking of tradition from the old Redskins way.
In the area of their own free agent players, Brian Orakpo spent the night in Nashville and still was expected to head to Arizona for a visit late this week. Leonard Hankerson signed with Atlanta, and Roy Helu Jr. with Oakland. Thus far, however, none of the other 11 free agents (Barry Cofield, Stephen Bowen, Tyler Polumbus, Jarvis Jenkins, Brandon Meriweather, Chris Neild, Santana Moss, Colt McCoy, E.J. Biggers, Justin Rogers and Chris Thompson) have found work.
