In the months of the offseason, the Washington Redskins, along with 31 other teams, will be tasked with trimming their roster down, from 90 of the world’s best football players, to 53.
It’s an arduous process, where long days will wear down coaches in the heat of summer, and where competition will blossom in unlikely places. Where the hardest decisions will be made, and where drastic implications may find roots.
The process won’t be challenging in its entirety. Upwards of 40 roster spots should be locks, or at least close to it. But the fringe spots remain up for grabs, and at positions of less clarity, those spots will be heavily fought over.
