Second-year pro Bacarri Rambo is expected to start during S Brandon Meriweather's two-game suspension.
Rambo entered the offseason on the bubble, but has supposedly improved his tackling. Rambo was benched after starting the first two games in 2013. Meriweather isn't exactly an All-Pro, but Rambo will be a liability in his absence. Aug 28 - 5:19 PM

CSN Washington's Rich Tandler puts Redskins second-year S Bacarri Rambo on the "wrong side of the roster bubble" heading into training camp.

Rambo started and played all 157 defensive snaps in Weeks 1 and 2 as a rookie before being benched and relegated to special teams for the remainder of the year. He missed too many tackles and didn't perform well in kick coverage, leaving Rambo mostly useless. He'll need a strong summer to earn a spot.

The Redskins "still have high hopes" for FS Bacarri Rambo.

Rambo opened last season as Washington’s starting free safety, but was highly ineffective playing against the run and got benched after just three games. The Redskins still see developmental upside in Rambo and he "remains in [their] long-term plans." Rambo is working with the second-team defense during OTAs. He only needs to hold off Tanard Jackson to keep his roster spot.

ESPN Redskins blogger John Keim does not consider S Bacarri Rambo a lock for the 2014 roster.

Rambo started in Week 1, a sign of how desperate the Redskins were in the secondary. He was benched by Week 3 and proceeded to spend the majority of the season as a third or fourth safety. Rambo, a sixth-round pick in 2013, will have to make a mark as a special teamer in camp. He showed no real signs of being a starter at free safety.

Redskins sixth-round FS Bacarri Rambo has been demoted to special teams.

Rambo played every defensive snap the first two weeks. He was limited strictly to special teams last week against Detroit. Rambo has graded out as Pro Football Focus' worst safety this season and has missed four tackles. DC Jim Haslett went with three cornerbacks -- DeAngelo Hall, David Amerson, and Josh Wilson -- along with SS Brandon Meriweather in the defensive backfield last week.

Sixth-round pick Bacarri Rambo has taken every first-team snap at free safety so far in Redskins camp.

Rambo was expected to compete with DeJon Gomes and Reed Doughty, but it's looking increasingly like Rambo has distanced himself from the pack. Rambo has the speed, ball skills and playmaking ability take the job and run with it.

Sixth-round pick Bacarri Rambo opened Redskins training camp as the starting free safety.

Brandon Meriweather is the starting strong safety, with rookie Phillip Thomas behind him. DeJon Gomes and Reed Doughty are behind Rambo at free. The position remains wide open to competition, but Rambo has the early edge.

Redskins DC Jim Haslett expects one of Bacarri Rambo or Phillip Thomas to start at free safety as a rookie.

"Yeah, I really do think one of them will be on the grass," Haslett said. "I'm not sure which one, but one of them I think is going to have to. ... We’re saying Rambo is a free safety and [Thomas] is a strong safety." Rambo (sixth round) was drafted later than Thomas (fourth), but all signs point to Rambo earning the starting job. Veteran FS Reed Doughty is best suited for special teams.

Redskins signed sixth-round FS Baccari Rambo to a four-year contract.

A ballhawking center-field safety at Georgia, Rambo is a poor tackler and has off-field issues, which caused him to slip deep into the third day of the draft. He could still be a steal there for a Washington team in desperate need of free safety help. Rambo will battle fellow rookie Phillip Thomas to be a starter.

Redskins selected Georgia S Bacarri Rambo with the No. 191 overall pick.

Rambo (6-foot-1, 211) is a center-field safety with elite ballhawking ability, intercepting 16 career passes as a 36-game starter for the Dawgs. He also forced six fumbles. Rambo ran forty times of 4.64 and 4.66 with a 34-inch vertical at the UGA Pro Day. Rambo isn't a great tackler and was suspended four games in 2012 for a positive marijuana test, but safeties with cover skills have rising value in the increasingly pass-happy NFL. He could compete for a starting job in a wide-open Redskins' defensive backfield.
