The Washington Redskins have had quite the interesting offseason as they begin operating under a new regime with head coach Ron Rivera now making most of their personnel decisions. Washington split with both of their starting cornerbacks Josh Norman and Quinton Dunbar, but have done some solid patchwork to keep their secondary respectable: first signing Kendall Fuller and now agreeing to terms with veteran Ronald Darby.
According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, the Redskins will sign Darby to a one-year deal worth $4 million. Darby will remain in the NFC East division after playing his last three seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Though Darby’s tenure with the Eagles was extremely up and down, he had proven in the past to be a solid NFL corner. Over his first two seasons with the Buffalo Bills, Darby emerged as one of the most exciting young corners in football.
Now set to join a completely different scheme in Washington, perhaps Darby can get back to his old ways and help bolster an uninspiring Washington Redskins secondary. Barring any major selections in the draft, Washington will likely feature Ronald Darby, Fabian Moreau and Kendall Fuller as their three starting cornerbacks on opening week.
