The cuts are coming in earnest now.

Moments after we learned that Washington was cutting defensive tackle Stacy McGee, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports that linebacker Zach Brown is getting cut as well.

Washington was trying to dangle players in trade but weren’t able to find a taker.

Brown was one year into a three-year $24 million contract, and clears $5.75 million worth of cap room, as they make moves including the addition of safety Landon Collins.

  1. The Eagles should explore whether they can get Zach Brown at a decent price as a replacement for Jordan Hicks. He is 30 y/o now but still a good player and someone like the Raiders don’t throw mad money at him he would fit nicely as a reliable replacement for Hicks.

  2. Brown is a good player and it’s a mystery to me how he fell out of favor so fast in Washington to the point he was benched for the final four games last year. He was good in Buffalo too. And PFF grades him well. Someone’s going to have a nice rangey ILB soon.

  3. As a Washington fan, I would be okay if they cut everyone on their roster. Lack of heart is the problem. These guys act like they care on social media and then stink on the field. Below average effort by everyone on the roster.

  4. This team is making move to tank this year – the “new” players are worthless and the ones “escaping” at least were of value. This could also be rats leaving a sinking ship.

  5. Zach Brown was an animal two years ago, but battled a nagging injury all season long. Anyone that picks him up will be getting a stud. Thank you for your time in Washington, Mr. Brown.

  6. PFF ranks Brown as the #3 inside linebacker in the NFL, so naturally a player like that has no business playing for the Redskins who apparently intend to replace him with LaVar Arrington. Rooting for the Redskins in 2019 will be like rooting for McGovern in 1972.

  7. Brown was not the player in 2018 he was in 2017 that garnered the contract. And the funny thing was we had a Dline in 2018..He had no protection in 2017 with all our injuries up front.
