The Washington Football Team was busy on Thursday, scheduling two visits for recently released veterans on Monday.

Earlier on Thursday, Mike Garofolo of the NFL Network reported that former Pro Bowl offensive tackle Charles Leno would visit Washington on Monday. Later in the evening, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported former Miami safety Bobby McCain would also visit the Football Team on Monday.

A former fifth-round pick out of Memphis in 2015, McCain played six seasons for the Dolphins. He was a team captain and starting free safety for Miami in 2020. He made his name as a slot cornerback for the Dolphins before becoming the starter at free safety over the last two seasons.

Miami saves just under $6 million against the salary cap with McCain’s release.

If Washington signs McCain, he would likely play free safety. Washington has a pair of talented strong safeties in Landon Collins and Kamren Curl. However, the team is still looking for the ideal free safety.

The Football Team selected Cincinnati safety Darrick Forrest in the fifth round of the 2021 NFL draft last weekend, but he is expected to begin his career on special teams.

Known as a scrappy overachiever, McCain would be an ideal fit for Washington coach Ron Rivera’s culture. Not only is he a hard worker and a former captain, but he also offers Washington defensive versatility.
