Redskins Hosting OLB Pernell McPhee For Visit

According to Ian Rapoport, the Redskins are hosting free agent OLB Pernell McPhee for a visit Sunday that will continue into Monday.

This is the first reported interest in McPhee since he became available a few weeks ago.

It’s worth mentioning that signing McPhee to a contract won’t impact a team’s 2019 compensatory picks, given that he was released this offseason.

McPhee, 29, is a former fifth-round pick of the Ravens back in 2011. He spent four years in Baltimore before signing a five-year, $38.75 million contract that included $15.5 million guaranteed back in 2015.

McPhee was set to make base salaries of $7.2 million and $7.625 million over the next two years when the Bears released him this offseason in a move that freed up $7,075,000 of available cap space.

In 2017, McPhee appeared in 13 games for the Bears and recorded 21 tackles, four sacks, a forced fumble and two pass defenses.
