Commanders defensive back Bobby McCain is on the way out in Washington.

McCain is being cut, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The move saves the Commanders the $4.42 million they would have paid him this year in salary, roster bonus and workout bonus, none of which was guaranteed.

The 29-year-old McCain spent the last two seasons in Washington and started 16 games each year. He’ll catch on somewhere else, but likely for less money.

McCain hits free agency as soon as his release is official on the NFL transaction wire and does not have to wait for the March 15 start of free agency to shop himself to a new team.

  1. Seemed like a solid contributor each year once the D found its identity.

    Percy Butler must have shown enough.

  2. Seems like a good man, but was not a good fit in Washington. Thank you for your service.

  3. Didn’t really follow him and his performance. But if he’s a solid starter, then the Vikes should be talking to him.

  4. I always liked McCain in Miami. Very good slot corner. Can play some boundary as well. Not a world beater but a very solid player. Hopefully Miami takes a sniff. We could use some help at DB.

  5. Didn’t follow closely but $4.4 million for defensive back who started every game for 2 years sounds like a good deal.
