Safety (5)


Bobby Mccain, Kam Curl, Darrick Forrest, Percy Butler, Jeremy Reaves Washington’s 2021 starters are back, and perhaps that is what’s most important. But they may not be united at the start of the season. Curl has a small cast on his right hand that could hinder his ability to play.

Once he’s healthy, though, this group will be key to the defense’s success. Mccain and Curl have a year of experience together — and a year with starting cornerback­s Fuller and Jackson — and have said they feel more confident and comfortabl­e. Del Rio tweaked the system to tailor it to his personnel, and throughout the preseason the group expressed optimism about its improvemen­t.
