In addition to landing Dockery, the team on Friday landed All-Pro defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth and retained cornerback DeAngelo Hall.

Demetric Evans, who started a career-high 11 games at right end for Washington in 2008, visited San Francisco on Monday. Evans, who will turn 30 in September, had said he didn’t want to come back for a sixth Redskins season if he couldn’t start, but now that possibility exists for him. Daniels, who turns 36 on Wednesday, had his contract voided last week.

“I worked out for the coaches at Redskin Park last week and it went well,” Daniels said on Monday before leaving for his second 3-hour workout of the day. “I’m feeling good. I can come back this year and do what I always do. I just don’t know whether the Redskins want me back or not.”

The Redskins’ official said the club is mulling re-signing Evans, Daniels or Marcus Washington, a five-year starter at strongside linebacker whose release on Feb. 20 had increased Taylor’s chances of moving to that spot. Taylor’s exit also improves the odds of the Redskins using the 13th pick in April’s draft on Texas defensive end/linebacker Brian Orapko.
