Redskins cut eight players

Andre Roberts, Richard Crawford AP

The Redskins began cutting their way to 53 players on Friday by parting ways with eight members of the roster.

That group includes cornerback Richard Crawford, who was a 2012 seventh-round pick of the team. He played 10 games as a rookie, recording 18 tackles and an interception while also returning eight punts for an average of 19.5 yards per return. He missed all of last season with a knee injury and retains practice squad eligibility thanks to this year’s change in the rules.

Washington also waived safety Da’Mon Cromartie-Smith, guard/center Tevita Stevens, tight end Ted Bolser, punter Robert Malone, center Kevin Kowalski, wide receiver Lee Doss and defensive tackle Robert Thomas.

The Redskins roster now stands at 67 players, leaving 14 more moves to make before Saturday’s deadline.

  1. Michael Sam is a very brave person to come out as the first gay NFL player. Andrew Suck should learn from Michael Sam and come out, too, instead of hiding in a closet. says: Aug 29, 2014 6:39 PM

    I look at R*dsk*ns and I shake my head. And I’m not talking about the team. I”m talking about the name.

    What a troll…all you can do is troll about the name. Nice long name nobody cares about, too

    I hope they keep Lache Seastrunk. He showed some sweet moves.

    As again. This Piscataway Native American/American Indian here says its not a slur and those who say it is who are not Native American need to get their life together and stop trolling. Pathetic.

    I’m just glad to see someone using their name. Until it changes, they are the Washington Redskins.

    RG-ME should be on this list…

  10. politicallyincorrect says: Aug 29, 2014 8:45 PM

    some interesting battles to see play out

    how many RBs and WRs
    RBs – Morris, Helu.. Seastrunk… and Young at FB; who is other RB.. Thompson, Redd or Royster….. I go with Redd and Thompson to PS
    WRs – DJax, Garcon, Roberts…. and I think Robinson and Ryan Grant make the team, with final spot to Moss or NWilliams… I go Moss and Williams to practice squad

  11. skins4life69 says: Aug 29, 2014 9:05 PM

    I think they’ll keep moss over williams, but Grant is definitely making the team, he has shown a lot of promise. I agree Seastrunk should make it over Redd and Royster.

    Moss to the Practice Squad? hes a 14 year vet. Hmm Nooo.

    Didn’t see Robby Griffin (all drama, all the time) on that list. Maybe on the next list.

    The roster doesn’t matter until they cut the meddling idiot owner

  15. nachoface says: Aug 29, 2014 9:32 PM

    PFT should cut JA.

    Thanks Josh Alper for being unbiased and using the name Redskins. It is not a slur, slight or anything of that nature. It’s a name of a football team. And that is a fact !

    I think it breaks down into analyzing other teams’ interests, whomever has the best chance of clearing waivers goes to the practice squad. And I agree that guy is Thompson. You can look it based on running style too. Helu, Seatrunk, and Thompson all have a similar skillset. Redd is more like Morris– so that leaves you with two big-play backs and two workhorse backs.

    Crawford never looked the same after blowing out his ACL. I hope gets an opportunity elsewhere.
