Redskins Free Agency 2012: Rocky McIntosh Visits With Miami Dolphins

The Washington Redskins need some help at inside linebacker, and they will likely have to address that need in the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft. But there was a player already on the roster last year who has experience at the position but seems to be moving elsewhere. According to the Washington Post Rocky McIntosh is visiting with the Miami Dolphins, and appears to be on his way out of Washington.

McIntosh, whom the Redskins drafted out of the University of Miami in 2006 as an outside linebacker, recorded a career-high 110 tackles for Washington in 2010 — his first season at inside linebacker. He re-signed to a one-year deal last July. But, he fell out of favor with the coaching staff and lost his job as a starter after eight games.

It has long been known that McIntosh was probably going to be on his way out, especially considering the strong play of youngster Perry Riley. McIntosh could add some depth at the position, but it appears that the coaching staff is comfortable letting him go. If London Fletcher signs elsewhere as well the position will be incredibly weak for the Redskins.
