Redskins' Donte Whitner: Expected to see increased action
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Whitner is expected to see increased action in the nickel position alongside Duke Ihenacho at strong safety this season.

After David Burton (concussion) was placed on injured reserve, Washington brought in the veteran Whitner to shore up the secondary. In his second game with the team, the 31-year-old recorded four tackles on 40 defensive snaps. Head coach Jay Gruden said of the safety situation, "You start with Duke and Donte is going to play a lot. It might depend on the package. It might be more nickel for Donte, it might be more base for Duke, or what have you. That's something that we'll decide on a week-to-week basis and a game-to-game basis depending on who we're playing." Look for Whitner to see a similar snap count this weekend against the Lions.

Redskins' Donte Whitner: Signs with Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitner signed a contract with the Redskins on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Whitner has visited with several teams over the past couple months and his signing with the Redskins comes shortly after the team placed both DeAngelo Hall and David Bruton on IR. With the Browns last year, Whitner had 81 tackles, 1.5 sacks, four passes defensed, and a forced fumble. He'll likely be the backup to Duke Ihenacho and Will Blackmon, but Whitner could still start to see snaps right away.

Donte Whitner: Visiting with Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Whitner will work out for the Panthers on Friday, NFL.com reports.

Whitner totaled 187 tackles over his two-year stint with the Browns, but was released by the team in April. With the Panthers losing safety Roman Harper to the Saints this offseason, Tre Boston has been promoted to their starting position, so signing Whitner would restore a veteran presence to help the depth of Carolina's secondary.

Donte Whitner: Visiting with Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Donte Whitner will visit with the Rams this week, NFL.com reports.

Whitner was released by the Browns earlier this month, ending a two-year stint in Cleveland that included 187 total tackles. On the back of such production, Whitner has drawn interest from the Rams, who lost safety Rodney McLeon in free agency. With only three safeties on the Rams' current roster, Whitner could add valuable experience to Los Angeles' secondary, should a contract agreement surface from his visit.

Browns' Donte Whitner: Released by Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Donte Whitner was released by the Cleveland Browns on Saturday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Whitner had a solid season in Cleveland, during which he was the second leading tackler on the team with 81 combined tackles to go along with 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble. With as much productivity he had during his 2015-16 campaign, it's a bit of a surprise the Browns aren't keeping the 30-year-old around. Expect Whitner to sign on with another squad, but his IDP fantasy value may take a hit.
