FRANCHISE PLAYER
TE Fred Davis (tendered at $5.446 million; signed tender March 16).

TRANSITION PLAYER
None.

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS

--WR David Anderson had six catches for 70 yards and a touchdown in four games after being signed off waivers in Week 10. Don't look for the undersized receiver to return.

--CB Phillip Buchanon was a solid nickel corner in his Washington debut in 2010, but a four-game drug suspension and a shoulder injury limited him to one game in 2011. He'll be 32 in September and is very unlikely to be back.

--ILB Keyaron Fox played mostly on special teams in his Redskins debut while missing two games with a staph infection. At 30, he's more likely to return if Fletcher doesn't.

--RB Tim Hightower was having his second strong game of his Redskins debut season when he blew out his left knee in Week 6. The Northern Virginia native, who'll be 26 in May, needs to prove that his knee is healthy to then re-sign and see where he stands in the wake of the impressive stretch runs by 2011 rookie running backs Roy Helu and Evan Royster.

--ILB Rocky McIntosh was a starter from December 2006-November 2011, but he saw little time the rest of the way before breaking curfew before the finale for which he was made inactive. The six-year veteran won't be back.

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS (not tendered offers)

--CB Byron Westbrook (not tendered as RFA) has advanced from two years in the practice squad to an adequate backup and a good special teams player. He'll likely be re-signed at the third-year minimum.

RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS
None.

EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS FREE AGENTS

--K Graham Gano is coming off a block-strewn year, but the Redskins have confidence that he's their long-term kicker.
