Capsules of the 16 NFC teams entering NFL free agency, which begins Tuesday:
The best way to fill holes in the NFL is to promote from within. Do the Redskins have a chance to do that with a couple of his recent draft picks?
Free from a $36 million salary cap penalty imposed over the last two years, the Washington Redskins will enter the start to free agency Tuesday afternoon with approximately $20 million available to spend. That won't be enough to immediately upgrade the talent at every position, but there will be some changeover in the roster.
A year after investing two draft picks in safeties, the Redskins still are searching for answers at the position.
Stay or Go: Reed Doughty has been the Redskins backup plan at safety for seven seasons. Is he going to be around for an eighth? Tandler and Tarik discuss.
Stay or Go: Should the Redskins move on from Brandon Meriweather or keep him until they are sure they have a better option? Tandler and Tarik debate the question.
Stay or Go: The Redskins brought cornerback E. J. Biggers in last year when the cap crunch limited their options. Should they move on? Tandler and Tarik discuss.
It looks like the bidding on Perry Riley may get richer than the Redskins would like. Will they have to pay him anyway? Tandler and Tarik discuss.
Stay or Go: Will Rob Jackson stay with the Redskins or can he find a starting job somewhere else? Tandler and Tarik give their views.
Stay or Go: Josh Wilson has been serviceable for the Redskins for the last three years but is it time for the team to move on? Tandler and Tarik discuss the question.
With DeAngelo Hall under contract for the next four seasons, which free-agent-to-be should the Redskins aim to re-sign next?
Should the Redskins re-sign Santana Moss
The Redskins face a number of key decision on free agents this year. Tandler and Tarik discuss Josh Morgan's future with the team.
Several quality veteran safeties are expected to hit the open market next month. That's a good thing for the Redskins, who desperately need to upgrade the position.
Veterans Brandon Meriweather and Reed Doughty are set to become unrestricted free agents, while draft picks Phillip Thomas and Bacarri Rambo remain unknown quantities. Indeed, the Redskins have many questions at safety entering the offseason.
Meriweather, meantime, said he might know for a couple more days whether he'll be able to suit up.
"I did a little bit, not too much," Meriweather said of practice. "I like to say I'm a tough player. We'll find out Saturday."
