The Redskins' top three safeties are easy: Brandon Meriweather, Ryan Clark and Phillip Thomas. But it gets dicey after that.

With training camp just around the corner, Redskins Insiders Tarik El-Bashir and Rich Tandler answer fan questions in this week's Q&A presented by Wendy's.
With training camp just around the corner we know that Redskins fans have plenty of questions about the upcoming season. Redskins Insiders Tarik El-Bashir and Rich Tandler answer them in this week's Q&A presented by Wendy's.
A fourth-round pick last April out of Fresno State, Thomas was penciled in as the Redskins' starting strong safety when training camp opened. Whatever potential Thomas showed during two weeks of training camp was never realized after he suffered a foot injury during a preseason game that kept him sidelined for his entire rookie season.
After missing his entire rookie season due to foot surgery, safety Phillip Thomas has his eyes on a starting job in the Redskins' secondary.
With questions surrounding the starting safeties, and even more concerns about the backups, should the Redskins pick a safety at No. 34?
20 Questions: The Redskins have had new starters at safety every year since 2006. Who will start for them there this year? Tandler and Tarik take a look.
It's too early to judge the draft class of 2013 but a good grade is more likely if someone besides Jordan Reed and David Amerson has a breakout season.

Talk of Phillip Thomas and other defensive backs, the 2014 depth chart and, oh yeah, that DeSean Jackson fellow, were the subjects of the week's top posts.

Redskins boss Bruce Allen hinted that the Redskins expected a lot from Phillip Thomas in 2013. Should they do the same in 2014?
Bruce Allen said that Phillip Thomas was penciled in to be a starter at safety last year. That has obvious implications for the 2014 season.
Need to Know: One starter at safety is set for the Redskins. Here are five players who could start alongside Brandon Meriweather when the season starts.
Thomas said he's been running and cutting at full speed since early March.
"I definitely look at it as a redshirt year," he said. "It gave me time to learn the playbook, see what other people are doing right and try to mimic them [and] see what they're doing wrong and keep it out of my game. It gave me time to mature and learn the defense."
