Redskins cut Derrick Dockery

Derrick Dockery’s second tenure in Washington is over.

The Washington Post reports Dockery has been informed of his release by coach Mike Shanahan.

After two disappointing seasons in Buffalo, Dockery returned to Washington in 2009 on a pricey deal.  He only lasted three games under Shanahan before losing his starting job and was due over $5 million in 2011.

Dockery has started 111 games in his eight seasons, and could still fit as a backup in a power scheme.
