- Russini adds that Redskins wanted Talib but Patriots are offering better deal.
Talib, 27, was the Patriots best cover corner and started the season off great before injuries took a toll later in the year. He totaled 41 tackles, four interceptions and a forced fumble over the course of 13 games.
We have Talib listed as the No. 11 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
- Jones adds that Washington has also expressed interest in Panthers’ S Mike Mitchell as well.
A league insider tells Jones that the Redskins seem intent on “making a statement at DB” this offseason.
If that’s the case, you can see why they wold make a run at one of the best available cornerbacks in this year’s free agent class.
After all, Washington made an attempt to sign Talib last year before he returned to New England on a one-year deal. Former Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris has been the Redskins’ secondary coach for the past few years and could be an additional selling point for Talib.
