Kirk Cousins ranks as the top free agent question for the Redskins, but the team has a number of other players with expired contracts. And so far, it seems the Washington brass isn't interested in working on new deals.
Defensive lineman Chris Baker is yet to hear from the team on a new deal, per a source with knowledge of the situation.
Baker has been the team's best defensive lineman the past two seasons, and if he hits the open market, will have suitors around the league. An able run stopper with good burst to apply interior pressure on quarterbacks, Baker registered 10.5 sacks over the last two seasons.
Elsewhere on the roster, receivers Pierre Garçon and DeSean Jackson both could hit free agency. 106.7 the Fan's Brian McNally reported the team has reached out to neither player on a new contract. Should the Redskins lose both Jackson and Garçon, that is taking 2,000 receiving yards out of the 2016 offense.
Staying on offense, veteran tight end Vernon Davis joined the 'Skins last year on a one-year 'prove it' type deal. He proved it. Davis caught 44 passes for 583 yards and two touchdowns and gave the 'Skins a viable option at tight end when Jordan Reed dealt with injuries. ESPN's John Keim reported that the 'Skins have not talked much about a new deal with Davis either.
Speaking at the Senior Bowl with CSN, team president Bruce Allen said the team wanted to finalize their coaching staff before diving into player contracts. The staff is almost full, though some lower level positions are still open. Regardless, it's also possible for the team to reach out to players and their representatives while filling coaching jobs.
Free agency does not open for another month, and the 'Skins still have time to enter into negotiations with the players they want to bring back. A month is a lot of time, but it's curious that Washington has gone silent on multiple notable free agents, especially for players they intend to bring back. The team has been allowed to work on new contracts with their own players for weeks.
It's too early to determine that the Redskins are moving on from any of their free agents, though the extended silence says something.
