REDSKINS HAVE YET TO TALK TURKEY ABOUT A NEW DEAL WITH PRESTON SMITH
By Michael Donovan
ESPN is reporting that the Redskins have yet to talk turkey about a new contract with linebacker Preston Smith:
“If they retain Preston Smith, they wouldn’t need to seek another starting outside linebacker,” writes John Keim. “But the Redskins have yet to engage in any meaningful contract discussions to bring him back. As of a week ago, there were none. The team has publicly and privately stated it would like him back, but has long known he’d be costly to keep around.”
The 26-year-old defender was selected by the Redskins in the second round in 2015 out of Mississippi State.
Smith compiled 52 total tackles, 30 solo tackles, four sacks, one fumble recovery, and one interception as a result of the 2018 NFL season.
In his four seasons as a member of the Redskins, Smith has yet to miss a regular season games, making 16 appearances in each season since his rookie year 2015-16. Over the course of those 64 regular season appearances, the up-and-coming linebacker has recorded 167 total tackles, 107 solo tackles, 24.5 sacks, five forced fumbles, four fumble recover, es and four picks.
