Cofield admitted a few months back that he unfortunately had a setback in recovery earlier in the year, which forced him to undergo a second procedure.
This is the first reported interest in him since he became available several months ago. However, Jason Cole of B/R previously spoke to multiple general managers regarding Cofield and they considered him to be the best available defensive player.
Cofield, 31, had another two years remaining on his six-year, $36 million contract when the Redskins cut him loose in a move that created $4,122,500 in available cap space.
In 2014, Cofield recorded seven tackles and a sack over the course of eight games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 68 defensive tackle in the league out of 81 qualifying players.
