Redskins Focused On Rebuilding Their Secondary?

Mike Jones of the Washington Post takes a look at some of the decision that Redskins will face regarding the secondary during the offseason.

Foot specialists have recommended that Redskins S LaRon Landry needs to have surgery to repair his Achilles tendon but reports from a few days ago mentioned that Landry has decided to not have the surgery.

Considering that he’s missed a good portion of the last two seasons because of an injury to his Achilles and the fact that he’ll be a free agent in the coming weeks, it would make sense for him to play it safe and have the surgery. Team’s will have already identified him as an obvious injury risk so why choose to pass on a surgery that’s being recommended by professionals when you have so much on the line?

Landry has plenty of talent but the concerns could outweigh the benefits and force him to sign a limited contract that requires him to prove that can stay healthy.

As for the Redskins, the back end of their secondary could look much different come next season. Landry’s a free agent and Oshiomogho Atogwe is dealing with a number of injuries. Washington’s backup options currently consist of DeJon Gomes and Reed Doughty so you can expect to see them kick the tires on some of the available players in free agency or the draft.
