The Washington Redskins have begun contract talks with three players. General manager Burce Allen says that the team has engaged in talks with Brian Orakpo, Perry Riley and DeAngelo Hall. All three players are set to become free agents in March.

“I think it’s a little early, because they are just starting to evaluate,” Allen said to the Washington Times. “We’ll have some fresh ideas and some fresh eyeballs looking at players. We, obviously, can fill them in on the character of various guys, but I’d be interested to hear their opinions on who they think really fits in here and who might not.”

The Redskins should be prioritizing an extension with Orakopo who at 27 was named to his third Pro Bowl after setting a career high with 60 tackles and recording 10 sacks.

Riley, 25, led the Redskins with 115 tackles from the linebacker position. The aging Hall had 78 tackles, four interceptions and forced four fumbles.
