Neither player has a stat sheet that jumps off the page, but both have size and have shown flashes of strong ability.
For many, despite the dismissal of former GM Scot McCloughan, the Washington offseason has gotten off to a strong start.
The Redskins' defensive line struggled so much in 2016 that there is some question if another addition is neccesary.
Bennie Logan visited the Redskins, but ended up signing with Chiefs on a one-year deal. And speaking of defensive linemen, two of the best available remain on the market in Dontari Poe and Johnathan Hankins.
A two-time Pro Bowler in 2013 and 2014, Poe's numbers have dipped in the last two seasons. In 2016, Hankins made 16 starts for a stout Giants defense, logging three sacks 43 tackles.
Poe has reportedly visited Atlanta, Jacksonville and Indianapolis, with a scheduled visit for Miami planned. Hankins' travel interary has been quieter, and some believe he could end up back with the Giants.
Either player could immediately help the Redskins, though, so far, it doesn't seem like there has been much interest. Outside of big-money deals for Calais Campbell and Brandon Williams, the defensive tackle market has largely seen smaller money and short-term contracts.
It's also worth keeping in mind that talent evaluators consider the 2017 NFL Draft quite deep along the defensive front. Maybe some teams plan to build their trenches through the draft instead of free agency.
Whatever the reason, and free agency is not even a week old, players like Poe and Hankins remain available. And players like Poe and Hankins could help the Redkins.
