With the Redskins season over, Washington must focus on rebuilding its roster for 2014 and beyond. CSN Washington takes a look at free agent targets on the teams still playing.

Seattle and San Francisco boast two of the deepest and most talented rosters in the NFL. Players from either team could be a fit for the Redskins, but Seattle has a pair of receivers that could be immediate boosts for Washington.

On the offensive side of the ball for Seattle, wide receivers Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin will be free agents after the season. Tate has a penchant for big plays, but might come at a premium. The 25-year-old Tate was taken by the Seahawks in the second round of the 2010 draft and was Seattle's leading receiver this season.

Baldwin, also 25, may be a better fit for Washington, as he has the savvy to get open on underneath and intermediate routes for young quarterback Russell Wilson in Seattle, and should be able to play opposite Redskins No. 1 Pierre Garçon.

Baldwin was Seattle's second leading receiver this season, but as an undrafted free agent and with the injured Percy Harvin working his way back to the Seahawks lineup, Seattle may determine Baldwin expendable in 2014.
