Redskins cut 2012 fifth-round pick Adam Gettis

The Redskins started whittling their roster down to 75 players on Sunday with a series of moves and they’ve continued the process by parting ways with a member of their 2012 draft class.

Guard Adam Gettis, a fifth-round pick, was waived by the team, leaving them with seven of their nine selections from that year still on the roster.

Gettis played 13 games for the team in 2013 after seeing no regular season time during his rookie season. He never made a start for the team and the offseason acquisition of Shawn Lauvao to go with Chris Chester on the starting line left him in a losing battle for a backup spot on the line this time around.

The Redskins also waived cornerback Bryan Shepherd, who signed with the team as an undrafted free agent this spring. With Gettis and Shepherd cast aside, the team has two more moves to make before Tuesday afternoon’s deadline.

    Should have kept this dude and cut RG3-13 instead.

    The other two waived:

    WR Rashad Ross

    TE Matt Veldman

    They also released G/C Mike McGlynn.

    So now they’re at 75.

    Well, when you lose out to Shawn ‘Swinging Gate’ Lauvao you can’t be all that good.
