Redskins get down to 75 players

Mike McGlynn AP

The Redskins made their third set of moves over the last two days on Tuesday, leaving them at 75 players well ahead of Tuesday’s deadline to make those cuts.

The team announced that they have waived wide receiver Rashad Ross and tight end Matt Veldman while also releasing offensive lineman Mike McGlynn.

McGlynn has gained a lot of experience since entering the league as a 2008 fourth-round pick of the Eagles, making 48 starts for Philadelphia, Cincinnati and the Colts. He played for Redskins coach Jay Gruden during the 2011 season when Gruden was the offensive coordinator of the Bengals, but neither that history nor his other experience was enough to nab him a spot on the roster.

With the move to 75 done, the Redskins can now turn their attention to the looming cut to 53 players. They’ll have one extra spot to work with as safety Brandon Meriweather’s suspension will buy someone a little more time on the Washington roster.

    It will be interesting to see what happens with the running backs. Seastrunk and Redd both flash more than Helu and Royster, but neither can block in third down situations.

    Thank you for being professional enough to use the proper name of the team.

    RG3 should have been one of those cuts. Way to give up your draft for two years for a dud.

    Hail to the Redskins!
    Does that make me a racist?!
    No! If you think the term is racist, then that’s your problem.

    i disagree with people who hate on RG3. He could be great in time. as far as trade, skins made playoffs once in last two years, rams have not. With the rams qb scenario, skins have a greater chance to make playoffs in the future. Picks or no picks, the end goal is always get to playoffs and then to sb. RG3 did things his rookie year no other in history did.

    Name debate is stupid, I really wish people would research their own and not listen to whats online, most of which is wrong.
    Give rg3 a break, it’s his 3rd year people, jezz. And before som3one tries to yell was on from seattle, put rg3 or luck their and they would of had 2 SB already. It takes 5 years to learn the west coast system…remember.

    Some say RGIII should be on that list…….I say the entire Dallas Cowboy defensive unit should be on the list…..How bout that!!!!!

    As usual there’s alot of ignorant idiots making these comments. No way would anyone w/ sense SERIOUSLY think that RGIII would be cut this easily.

    Serious question…

    Didn’t Mike McGlynn play center for the Ravens a couple years ago? Why am I thinking that, what’s the connection?
