Redskins make first roster cuts


The last bits of info regarding the first wave of roster cuts are trickling in.  The Redskins are the latest to announce the moves that they made to get to 75 players.

As previously reported, kicker Neil Rackers lost the kicking competition to Graham Gano.  The Redskins also released veteran offensive linemen Tony Moll (pictured) and James Lee.

The Redskins have waived running back Antwon Bailey, offensive lineman Chris Campbell, running back Lennon Creer, quarterback Jonathan Crompton, receiver Samuel Kirkland, linebacker Monte Lewis, guard Nick Martinez, and tight end Beau Reliford.

Receiver Lance Lewis was waived with the injured designation.  If unclaimed, he reverts to Washington’s injured reserve list.  Also, cornerback Morgan Trent was waived with an injury settlement; if unclaimed, he won’t be back.

Cornerback Kevin Barnes has been traded to the Lions.

Finally, right tackle Jammal Brown was shifted from active/PUP to reserve/PUP.  He’ll miss at least the first six weeks of the season.

    They need to cut everyone and start fresh. Or they’ll be a 5 win team again. Bums.

    Jammaal Brown is turning out to be a waste of money I think….and Gano is better, it was the blocking up front that was weak last year leading to several blocked kicks
