Washington has reportedly made a decision in its kicker competition.

The club will waive rookie Zach Hocker, John Keim of ESPN.com reported Saturday morning. The seventh-round pick from Arkansas had been challenging incumbent kicker Kai Forbath.

In other Washington personnel news, undrafted rookie tailback Silas Redd is set to make the 53-player roster, Dianna Marie Russini of NBC Washington reported. The former USC and Penn State running back led Washington in rushing yards (157) and carries (34) in the preseason.

While Washington will keep Redd, it will be releasing second-year tailback Chris Thompson, Lake Lewis Jr. of SportsJourney.com reported. A Florida State product, Thompson was a fifth-round pick in 2013.

    Washington

    Where you start your second best QB

    Washington

    Where your starting QB is a marketing prop that hasn’t learned to slide or throw the ball away.

    Washington. Not relevant for 15 years and counting.

    Washington is working very hard to get the right player mix so they can go 4-12 instead of 3-13

    RGFragileEgo can’t stand the pressure or the criticism. He’ll be in full implosion mode by game 4 or 5

    Left out of this article was any mention of the other significant RB cut — Lache Seastrunk. I hope he makes it to the practice squad.

    I love the Washington Redskins :)

    Why would they waste a draft pick on a kicker when Forbath is 35/40 as a kicker? Seems pretty good to me.

    What do the Huskies have to do with this? They got the Boise St. coach, right?

    Honestly I’m kind of getting tired of football already, what we really need right now is Tim Tebow’s opinion on the Redskins name. Or maybe Michael Sam’s critique of Johnny Manziel.

    I liked Redd as the 5th RB… don’t understand how he makes team over Seastrunk though….. now Redskins have no speed at all in the backfield
