Free Agent Scorecard
Restricted free agents
Brantley is the restricted free agent to keep an eye on. He appeared to be making strides as a reserve lineman heading into the 2019 season but played in just one game before a foot injury forced him to injured reserve. Where exactly does he fit in with the Redskins’ defense now with Rivera at the helm?
Restricted free agents will have to be tendered by Washington in order for them to be on the roster in 2020. The Redskins can assign a number of different tenders on their restricted free agents (original round tender, second-round tender, first-round tender, etc). Each tender comes with a higher 2020 salary. Those numbers have not yet been determined by the NFL.
