Veteran defensive end Adam Carriker was looking for a chance to continue his comeback attempt with the Redskins.
But the team decided today they weren’t as interested.
The Redskins just announced they released Carriker and veteran punter Sav Rocca.
Carriker was carrying a $6.5 million salary cap number, and had missed the last 30 games because of a recurring quadriceps problem. He’s had three surgeries to correct the issue, and was hoping to play this season.
Rocca was scheduled to make $1.2 million this year, so they must be planning on going cheap at the position.
They also released tight end Richard Quinn and waived running backs Davin Meggett and Jawan Jamison, last year’s seventh rounder.
