Redskins Actively Shopping LBs Zach Brown & Mason Foster, “Strong Players” For C.J. Mosley


Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that the Redskins are actively shopping several players including LBs Zach Brown and Mason Foster in trade talks and are “strong players” to sign ILB C.J. Mosley.

The Redskins would need to create some cap room to sign Mosley. 

Brown, 29, is a former second-round pick of the Titans back in 2012. He finished his four-year rookie contract with Tennessee before signing a one-year, $1,250,000 contract with the Bills as an unrestricted free agent in 2016.

After finding less interest than anticipated, Brown agreed to a one-year, $2.3 million contract with the Redskins in 2017 and returned to Washington this last year on a three-year contract worth up to $24 million.

According to, trading Brown will free up $5.75 million of available cap space while creating $3 million in dead money.

In 2018, Brown appeared in all 16 games for the Redskins and recorded 96 tackles, one sack, two forced fumbles, and a pass defense.

Foster, 30, is a former third-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2011. He played out his rookie contract in Tampa Bay before signing on with the Redskins in 2015 with a two-year, $2.5 million contract.

According to, trading Foster will free up $4 million of available cap space while creating $250,000 thousand in dead money.

In 2018, Foster appeared in 16 games for the Redskins, totalling 131 tackles, one sack, two interceptions, two fumble recoveries and four passes defensed.
