Redskins plan to start David Amerson opposite DeAngelo Hall

The Washington Redskins have been looking to add talent to their secondary during the offseason, but the top cornerbacks and safeties chose to sign with different teams and passed on the opportunity to join the Redskins roster.

As a result, the team is left with limited options and they currently plan to start a youngster opposite veteran DeAngelo Hall.

According to the Washington Post, the Redskins plan to start last year’s second-round pick David Amerson despite the struggles that he had on the field during his rookie year.

Amerson is a talented player who has incredible ball skills, but the team will need to hope that he improves during his sophomore campaign.

The Redskins could add some players to the secondary in the 2014 NFL Draft, but it appears that they are prepared to enter the season with Hall and Amerson on the outside while Tracy Porter picks up his assignments in the slot.
