Redskins Agree to a Multi-Year Deal with Safety Deshazor Everett

The Redskins agreed to a multi-year contract Tuesday with safety Deshazor Everett, Matthew Paras of the Washington Times reports.

Everett, 26, was set to be a restricted free agent. He played 14 games last season, starting a career-high eight. He is also a core member of the Redskins‘ special teams.

Everett helped step in and fill the void at strong safety last season. After Su’a Cravens left the team prior to Week 1, Everett played 98 percent of the defensive snaps against the Philadelphia Eagles. His playing time, though, decreased as fourth-round rookie Montae Nicholson started to excel next to D.J. Swearinger.

Everett was forced back into the starting lineup when Nicholson, already dealing with shoulder issues, suffered a season-ending concussion. Everett started the last six weeks of the season and finished 2017 with a career-high 589 defensive snaps.

  1. DB in the draft says:

    Three signed so far, one starter [FOSTER], one maybe starter [DUNBAR], and one teams starter [EVERETTE].

    One RFA left, and I would offer him a two-year contract now, [NSEKHE]. I’m guessing however, he wants to at least sniff FA.
    Probably, the front office feels in 2019 at 35 as a FA, TY will hold little value in the market. If he’s still playing at a high level, they can reel him in with a two-year low-ball deal then.

    Looks for all the world, the FA’s still unsigned are going to be allowed to test the market.

    DEF:

    GALLET, MURPHY, JONES, TAYLOR, CARTER, BROWN, COMPTON, BREELAND, HALL.

    OFF:

    LAUVAO, LONG, BERGSTROM, PAUL, PRYOR, QUICK, GRANT.

    KT:

    HOPKINS.

    I think when offers come in, they try to retain:

    GALLET, or MURPHY, not both due to cost.I think MURPHY @ two-positions.
    TAYLOR, and I think he comes back on a similar one-year due to age/inj.
    COMPTON, maybe for depth @ lower-cost.
    PAUL, if the bill is low,and it might be due to injury history.
    QUICK, on another make-good low-ball offer if his market is dead.
    HOPKINS, fifty-fifty on a short lower-cost contract.

    In the iffy return column:

    LONG only if necessary, and he’s still without an offer on April 25. And if he does return, I think KOUANDJIO is cut.
    GRANT might return, but only because his market sucked.

    Fa’gid da boud dit:

    BROWN wants the moon, and I think he gets it, but not from ALLEN.
    GALLET or MURPHY, JONES, CARTER, BREELAND, HALL, all gone.
    LAUVAO, BERGSTROM, gone.

    FA’s coming in:

    WR-SAMMY WATKINS [4 years, 9.5 mill]
    DT-DONTARI POE [4 years, 8.5 mill]

    Holes to fill:

    starting LG without LONG, fourth T, maybe a teams TE, developmental QB, starting RB, fourth OLB, starting ILB, CB, and S unless CRAVENS is still here. Hopefully he’s traded for a 3rd round pick.

    Draft:

    All depends on what we need and who’s on the board when we pick.

    Mock 2.0

    #13 – DERWIN JAMES-FS
    #44 – TREMAINE EDMUNDS-ILB
    3rd round?
    #109- RASHAAN GAULDEN-CB
    #140- KYLE LAULETTA-QB
    #174- best RB on the board.
    #205- KYLE FITTS-DE
    #215- DARREN CARRINGTON-WR
