Darby is an interesting signing for the Redskins, who parted ways with Josh Norman and later traded Quinton Dunbar to the Seahawks. Darby is coming off of a down year, but was a solid player before the injuries he’s dealt with in recent years.
Darby, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Bills out of Florida State back in 2015. The Eagles traded WR Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick to the Bills in return for Darby in 2017.
Darby played out the final year of his four-year, $4.569 million contract before returning to the Eagles last year on a one-year contract.
In 2019, Darby appeared in 11 games and recorded 37 total tackles, one tackle for loss, two interceptions, and 11 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 109 cornerback receiver out of 112 qualifying players.
