And they should. Per Mike Jones of The Washington Post:
Good offensive tackles really ever see the light of free agency, even right tackles like Winston. Houston runs a similar zone blocking scheme as the Redskins, so a transition to DC could be rather seamless. Obviously, we all know that the Skins just made an enormous investment in Robert Griffin III. Now they need to protect that investment. Hopefully, Trent Williams will grow up and be the stud LT they hoped he’d be when they drafted him 4th overall in 2010. On the other side, Jammal Brown has been one part injury prone, two parts awful. Winston would be a major upgrade on the right side and give the Skins a pair of good bookends to protect the golden child.
Winston, in my opinion, should be “Target A.” Not Vincent Jackson. Not Marques Colston. Not Carl Nicks. Go get yourself a really good RT, and go from there.
