Redskins talking contract with Brian Orakpo’s agent

brian orakpoAccording to Zac Boyer of The Washington Times,  Redskins general manager Bruce Allen says he’s been in contact with the agents of Brian Orakpo, Perry Riley and DeAngelo Hall with free agency almost a month away.

Bruce Allen said Tuesday that the Washington Redskins have begun contract talks with the representatives of three players — outside linebackerBrian Orakpo, inside linebacker Perry Riley and cornerback DeAngelo Hall — before they become free agents when the league year begins in March.

After a good season in which he stayed healthy,  Orakpo would be smart to test the market.  I’m not sure the Redskins would be able to compete with any other teams that might be interested.
