Redskins Make Flurry Of CB Moves

The Redskins are going to be pretty shorthanded in Week 17 as they seek to officially eliminate the Cowboys from the playoffs. After already shutting down starting quarterback Dwayne Haskins, the team is now placing cornerbacks Quinton Dunbar and Danny Johnson on inured reserve. In corresponding roster moves, they signed Dee Delaney and added Breon Borders off the Jaguars’ practice squad.

Dunbar had missed the last two weeks with a hamstring injury. He’ll finish the year with four interceptions and eight passes defended in 11 games, all starts. This is the second straight campaign that he’ll finish the year on IR, as a shin issue limited him to only seven games last season. Back in January of 2018, he inked a three-year extension worth $10.25MM. The 2015 UDFA from Florida has one more year left on his deal.

Johnson is a 2018 UDFA from FCS school Southern. He signed with Washington and made the 53 as a rookie, appearing in 14 games while playing a limited role. He started this season on the reserve/PUP list, and was activated a couple of weeks ago. He immediately slid into the starting lineup, starting each of the past two games.

Delaney is a 2018 UDFA from Miami, who has bounced around and appeared in two games for Jacksonville as a rookie. Borders is a 2017 UDFA from Duke who has spent the past few years going on and off various teams’ practice squads. With veteran Josh Norman still in the doghouse, it’s possible both see the field in Week 17.

Redskins Sign 14 Undrafted Free Agents

The Redskins are the latest team to ink a crop of undrafted free agents, as they’ve agreed to sign the following 14 players:

Cobbs may be the most notable name on Washington’s list of undrafted free agents, as he was originally viewed as a possible Day 2 pick when he declared for the draft earlier this year. The 6’4″ Cobbs initially broke out for the Hoosiers during the 2015 campaign, when he posted 60 receptions and averaged 17.3 yards per catch. An ankle injury forced Cobb to take a medical redshirt in 2016, but he posted 841 yards and eight touchdowns during his most recent season while earning first-team All-Big Ten honors.

Blanding, meanwhile, led all draft-eligible safeties with 29 run stops, according to Austin Gayle of Pro Football Focus, who listed Blanding among the UDFAs with the best chance to make an impact during their rookie campaigns. The ex-Cavalier managed at least 60 tackles in each of his four collegiate seasons, and put up four interceptions during his senior year.
