Here are our five most popular posts from the week that was.

1. Allen: Thomas was going to start at safety last yearThe GM’s revelation here created questions about the plans the team has for their fourth-round pick in the 2013 draft. There are possibilities but Thomas is still a question mark despite Allen’s “high hopes”.

2. Five free agents the Redskins can still pursueThe big names are gone and even a lot of the better players on the second and third tiers have signed. But there are still players out there who can help the Redskins. Eric Winston, anyone?

3. Porter a piece of the defensive backfield puzzle—The veteran cornerback will be wearing his fourth different uniform in four years. You can say he can’t hold a job but, on the other hand, he has no problem getting a job.

4. Five possible depth chart surprises for the 2014 Redskins—Tom Compton at right tackle? Kennan Robinson at Jack linebacker? With a new head coach there are always plenty of lineup surprises and we look at a few possibilities here.

5. Redskins are interested in DeSean Jackson—Since that was posted, the team’s interest has advanced to the point where Jackson will be visiting Redskins Park on Monday. Stay tuned, it seems likely that there will be much, much more on this topic in the coming days.

The best of the rest from the week:

    DeSean Jackson would be a clear cut upgrade on the field, but is it too risky with his baggage and how he handles himself? It’s always been about the money with him always wanting a new contract and such. He was outright released! Talking about a pro bowl level player who is still quite young, it’s a major red flag still. But adding him to this offense, wow. We’d arguably have one of the best pair of WR’s in the game. Jackson demands attention from the defense, opens up the field for Garcon and Reed. But I have to admit it scares the hell outta me, I could see him bring the whole team down when something don’t go right… If the money and contract is fair, bring him aboard, if we have to overpay let him go elsewhere, the draft is deep at WR…
