Need to Know: The Redskins improved their special teams from atrocious in 2013 to merely bad last year.


Ben Kotwica says he’s optimistic about the Redskins' special teams as he enters his second season as unit coordinator.


Since General Manager Scot McCloughan was hired in early January, he’s been busy retooling the Redskins’ roster via free agency and preparing for the 2015 draft.


Although Jay Gruden was pleased with the progress made by the Redskins’ special teams units last season, the head coach wants more consistency in 2015.


After the 2013 season there was one thing that everybody who watched the Redskins could agree on—that the special teams were so awful they would have to improve just to be bad.
