Washington Redskins Biggest Offseason Mistake Was Losing Lorenzo Alexander

The Washington Redskins had only one free-agent player sign with another team during the 2013 offseason.
Unfortunately, it was 2012 Pro Bowler and special teams co-captain linebacker Lorenzo Alexander, who signed a three-year, $9.5 million contract ($3 million guaranteed) with the Arizona Cardinals.
Alexander spent his entire NFL playing career with the Redskins and was one of the more versatile players on the team—switching from offense to defense within his first three years with the team. He even played as a reserve tight end during that transitional period.
His ability to adjust earned him the nickname "One Man Gang" by his teammates.
During his fourth year with the Redskins, he moved to special teams and was selected a co-captain by his teammates.
He would later be named the Redskins winner and 2010 nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, awarded to an NFL player recognizing their off-field contributions and community service.
