Redskins get down to 75 players


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.
