The Redskins and safety Deshazor Everett have agreed to a three-year extension, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (via Twitter). The deal carries $6MM in base value, plus additional incentives, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport (Twitter link).
Everett was playing out the final year of the two-year, $2.6MM pact he signed with Washington in March 2018. At the time, he was coming off a 2017 campaign in which he set career highs in starts (eight), tackles (52), passes defensed (five), and forced fumbles (one). The Texas A&M product saw an increased role in the Redskins’ secondary that season due to injuries to the club’s other DBs, but his defensive snaps have fallen off considerably since.
Nonetheless, he remains a valuable special teams contributor, and the Redskins have elected to keep him under contract as a result. He has missed the last three games with an ankle injury, but that does not appear to be a major concern going forward.
Everett has compiled four tackles this year but has not registered any other statistics.
