The Redskins need a lot of help on the defensive line and added another piece for the rebuild, nabbing Stacy McGee from the Oakland Raiders.

McGee's addition comes after reports showed the team added Terrell McClain from the Cowboys. The bigger news in Washington, however, is the departure of Chris Baker.
Baker, aka Big Swaggy, has been the Redskins best defensive lineman for the past two seasons. Replacing him will be the combo of McClain and McGee, at least so far.
In four seasons with the Raiders after being drafted in the 6th round out of Oklahoma in 2013, McClain has started 18 games and logged 63 tackles. Only once in his four seasons has McGee played a full 16 game season, that came in 2015. Last year, McGee played nine games.
With plenty of size at 6-foot-3 and 308 lbs., McGee still rarely lined up at the nose tackle position when the Raiders played their 3-4 base scheme.
