The 2013 season is in full swing as free agency enters its third full week of wheeling and dealing. Pieces are being collected as teams look to build depth and are gearing up for a Super Bowl run in New Jersey in a little less than 11 months.
Power rankings have been created as a way to judge teams for the first time since the confetti finished falling from the roof of the Superdome in February.
This time last year, even with the pending additions of Heisman-winning quarterback Robert Griffin III and record-setting running back Alfred Morris, many across the league felt that the Redskins would once again be dwelling in the cellar of the NFC East for the fourth time in five years.
An improbable seven-game winning streak to end the season and the first playoff game in front of a sellout crowd at FedExField in 13 years put any doubts about this team to rest and tore apart preseason “expectations”.
Find out where the league ranks the team in its ever-so-early debut of the 2013 power rankings:

The Washington Redskins have had well-documented struggles against the salary cap this offseason, but continue to address the depth and competition along the offensive line.
In addition to retaining starting right tackle Tyler Polumbus, the Redskins injected some new blood with longtime Tampa Bay Buccaneers tackle Jeremy Trueblood.
Besides having one of the most awesome football names ever, Trueblood comes with a résumé of success dating back to his days at Boston College, continuing through his first seven years at the professional level in the Sunshine State.
It appears that a competition is a’brewing at right tackle heading into training camp, as the Redskins seek their first back-to-back division titles since the 1983-84 seasons:

On Wednesday, the Washington Redskins continued to mark off another box on their plan of winning back-to-back NFC East titles by signing one of the most important players on the 2012 team; right tackle Tyler Polumbus.
Robert Griffin III burst onto the season with an epic debut performance en route to AP Rookie of the Year. Alfred Morris went from unknown back from Florida Atlantic University to owner of the franchise’s rushing record. Santana Moss had a career resurgence, catching a team-high eight touchdown passes and showing that he still has untouchable speed that Redskins Nation has been so fortunate to see for eight years and counting.
The trio can thank Polumbus and the rest of the offensive line for helping them reach unprecedented success as they paved the way for the league’s top rushing attack and gave Griffin III ample amount of time to find open receivers down the field.
Find out just how happy Polumbus is to wear Burgundy and Gold again next season here:
