JUNKIES: Are the Redskins winning off the field?

A constant question around these parts: Are you better off than you were a few years ago?

And every offseason for fans of the Washington Redskins this question becomes an existential one: Are they getting closer? Are they getting better? Are we headed for another year of disappointment?

This offseason the Redskins splashed the cash on one of the top safety's on the market Landon Collins, re-signed veteran running back Adrian Peterson, and added Case Keenum in a trade with the Denver Broncos.

But have they done enough in free agency to improve on the roster that went 7-9 and finished in third place in the NFC East? Or another way: Are the Redskins winning off the field this offseason?

"They're not one player away," Eric Bickel said Thursday on The Sports Junkies. "To me this is almost a nothing. They've almost done nothing in free agency, if you ask me."

"How many wins is (Collins) going to bring the football team?" Bickel said. "But my guess is it's a low-impact, in the grand scheme of things, signing. I'd like to see them sign four or five guys. Or be more aggressive in the draft."  

And while these moves may work out, the big question remains: What is the long-term solution at quarterback?

"You bring up a good point on the Band-Aid at quarterback," The Junkies' Jason Bishop said. "I would really love to know what they're serious plan is. I really would love to know that." 

The Redskins still have time for a few more moves in free agency and a plethora of draft picks to use, but as of now, definitive answers on the trajectory of the franchise are scant.
