Resigning Brian Orakpo Should Be Redskins Top Priority
There is plenty of talk this offseason about which free-agents the Redskins should sign. Before Washington adds to its depth, it must first secure it's own top free-agent players. Outside linebacker Brian Orakpo is and should rightfully be the top priority.
Washington will try to sign Orakpo to a long-term deal this offseason. If a deal cannot be reached, the Redskins should without a doubt franchise tag the team's top pass rusher.
Orakpo has expressed a desire to return to Washington, so the Redskins need to get a deal done. If they somehow lose out on bringing Orakpo back, the team will not only be trying to sure up help in the defensive backfield, it will be on the search to find a replacement for the three-time pro-bowler.
