With the 2014 NFL scouting combine in the rearview mirror and free agency about to begin, Insider's experts have produced an Offseason Blueprint for all 32 NFL teams. Included are each team's front-office priorities, projected 2014 lineups, draft and free-agency targets, cap situation and much more.
This is the Offseason Blueprint for the Washington Redskins.
What management's to-do list should include this offseason.
1. What kind of relationship will new coach Jay Gruden be able to foster with Robert Griffin III, and will the powers-that-be stay out of the way and allow it to happen as Gruden sees fit? They are the two most important assets in this organization, and the Redskins need to get this right. It starts with Gruden.
2. Other than LT Trent Williams, the offensive line is horrible and needs to be upgraded, no matter what the new scheme will be. There is cap space, but free agency is also a tough place to find long-term offensive line solutions. That said, the Redskins need to look.
3. With Santana Moss and Josh Morgan set to become UFAs, a plan needs to be put into place to upgrade the WR group and provide some help opposite Pierre Garcon. The Skins have a player in TE Jordan Reed who could set the league on fire in '14 with his run-after-catch ability. He was exceptional as a rookie until an injury derailed his season.
