Redskins Make Smart Moves on Day 1 of Free Agency
In addition to the returning players, the Redskins also picked up speed receiver Andre Roberts, guard Shawn Lauvao and inside linebacker Adam Hayward.
Roberts signed a four-year, $16 million deal and will likely take over the starting slot receiver position. The 5-foot-11, speedster spent his first four NFL seasons in Arizona where he caught 182 passes for 2,123 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Lauvao, also a four year pro, started 11 games last season for Cleveland. He signed a four-year deal worth $17 million. Lauvao could take a starting guard position on a Redskins offensive line that struggled last season.
The Redskins signed the seven-year pro Hayward to a three-year deal. The move will give the Redskins depth at linebacker and special teams.
It was a solid beginning to what is expected to be a busy free-agency for the Redskins.
