The Washington Football Team had one of the top defenses in the NFL in 2020. That defense should be even better in 2021, despite having to play a murderer’s row of elite quarterbacks this fall.
Washington added players like Jamin Davis, William Jackson III, Benjamin St-Juste and Bobby McCain to the back seven, while also getting former All-Pro safety Landon Collins back from injury.
As Washington prepares to face the Baltimore Ravens in the preseason finale on Saturday, the team’s roster is almost set before Tuesday’s league-mandated deadline.
So, how many spots are up for grabs on defense? The biggest questions are who will back up Chase Young and Montez Sweat at defensive end? And, does Washington keep an extra corner or safety?
Here are five players to watch in Saturday’s preseason finale.
