A botched extra point attempt apparently cost Redskins punter Hunter Smith his job.
The team dumped Smith and signed Sam Paulescu on Tuesday, according to Rick Maese of the Washington Post. Smith, the team’s holder, could not corral a high snap on the Redskins’ failed extra point try against the Bucs Sunday.
Smith said after the play that the Redskins should cut him, not kicker Graham Gano — who struggled earlier in the game. Unfortunately for Smith, Shanahan came to the same conclusion.
