As Week 2 of free agency appears to be coming to a quiet close for the Redskins, we’ve got some (minor) updates to share:

  • Two players who visited Redskins Park this week – OL Mike McGlynn and WR Kenny Britt – left without signing and are visiting other teams. McGlynn, who played guard and center for the Colts the past two seasons and for Jay Gruden’s Bengals in 2011, is scheduled to visit the Rams, according ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio. Britt, meantime, visited the Bills on Friday but left without a deal, according to the team. The 25-year-old visited the Redskins on Tuesday and dined with front office employees at the Wine’ing Butcher in Ashburn. Britt has now visited the Redskins, Bills, Rams and Patriots. The Seahawks and Panthers are also reportedly interested.
  • I haven’t seen nor heard an update regarding center Brian De La Puente’s visit on Wednesday. The 28-year-old started the past three seasons for the Saints.
  • The fact that McGlynn, Britt and De La Puente left without signing doesn’t mean it won’t happen. It does, however, mean they felt it was in their best interest to continue shopping their services. Or that an offer was not made.
  • The most recent salary cap figures from NFL Players Association have the Redskins with $6,960, 869 in cap space.
  • The Redskins announced jersey numbers for several of the new players. Linebacker Adam Hayward will wear No. 55, which was worn last season by Nick Barnett. Cornerback Tracy Porter will wear No. 26, last worn by Josh Wilson. Guard Shawn Lauvao will don No. 77, which Jammal Brown wore in 2011. Kicker Jake Rogers, meantime, will wear No. 4.
  • The other new players—Akeem Jordan, Jason Hatcher, Darryl Sharpton and Andre Roberts—have not picked numbers yet.
