The Redskins have not yet decided whether to use Barry Cofield at defensive end or nose tackle.

They'll sort it out on the training camp practice field. Cofield, who signed a six-year, $36 million blockbuster late Tuesday night, was a nose tackle in the Giants' 4-3. At 6'4/306 he's built more like a defensive end for Washington's 3-4 scheme, but it isn't like the Redskins have better options inside. We still have the expectation that Cofield will be a "0-technique" nose.
