Will Washington Redskins tag top free agent Brian Orakpo franchise player?


Cover32 put out a list of top 10 free agent linebackers, and the Washington Redskin’s Brian Orakpo topped the list at #1. Almost immediately, ESPN reported that the Washington Redskins are in the process of negotiating a deal with Orakpo. If a contract cannot be agreed upon by the free agency deadline, then Washington will designate him a franchise player.

Smart decision; the 5th year veteran returned from injury with a strong 2013 season, garnering his 3rd pro bowl distinction after recording 43 tackles, 10 sacks, and an interception return for a touchdown over the course of 15 games.
