The last time defensive back Donte Whitner played in the NFL was last year with the Cleveland Browns.
So far this season, Whitner has had some trouble finding work. However, it looks like his job search might be coming to an end sooner rather than later.
Washington’s the latest to kick the tires on Donte Whitner https://t.co/j1B2x2yPBr— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) October 4, 2016
Before the Redskins, the Carolina Panthers and the Los Angeles Rams showed some interest in the former Pro Bowler during the offseason.
@ProFootballTalk btw I was offered a deal from the Rams and the panthers.— DonteHitner (@DonteWhitner) October 4, 2016
Prior to their loss on Monday Night Football to the Minnesota Vikings, the New York Giants also showed some interest in Whitner. With their depleted secondary, the Giants are definitely still considering their options.
Don't be too surprised to see Whitner playing in the NFC East sometime in the near future.
