LB Rocky McIntosh, a free agent, told PFW his first choice would be to remain with the Redskins. "This is my town, but I also want to win more than six or eight games a season," he said. "I want to go somewhere where I can fit in as a winner." McIntosh also said that versatility was one of his strengths and that he believes he could make even more strides in the Redskins' 3-4 defense if he stayed. Last season was a struggle for him at times. McIntosh appeared a bit uncomfortable as an inside linebacker in the odd front, having been a 4-3 weak-side linebacker previously and having his most success in that role. The Redskins could opt to move on if they believe that LB Perry Riley, a 2010 fourth-round pick by the team, is ready for an expanded role, or they could choose to address the position next to London Fletcher through free agency or a trade.
