Redskins cut roster down to 75 players

The Washington Redskins have made more roster cuts on Monday and Tuesday and they now have gotten their number of players down to 75 before the 4:00 pm deadline.  Here is a look at the players the Redskins have released over the past few days:

Guard – Adam Gettis

Cornerback- Bryan Shepherd

Wide Receiver – Rashad Ross

Tight End- Matt Veldman

Guard/Center – Mike McGlynn

Adam Gettis was a fifth round pick for the Redskins in the 2012 draft and he managed to make the roster the past few seasons.  Gettis being a smaller but athletic offensive lineman was a nice fit for Mike Shanahan’s zone blocking scheme.  However, with new head coach Jay Gruden’s push to add bigger linemen to the team, Gettis’ lack of bulk may have worked against him.

Mike McGlynn was signed as a free agent in the offseason and was expected to add depth the guard and center positions.  But he wasn’t able to stand out enough in the coaches eyes to warrant a spot on the team.

Previous Cuts

Fullback – Stephen Campbell

Wide Receiver – Cody Hoffman

Linebacker – Jeremy Kimbrough

Wide Receiver – Rashad Lawrence

Safety – Ross Madison

Defensive End – Jake McDonough

Linebacker – Adrian Robinson

Defensive End – Jeremy Towns

Outside Linebacker – Rob Jackson:

Jackson has been a key reserve for the Redskins for six seasons and was re-signed this offseason by the team as well.  So with Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan as the starters and rookie Trent Murphy entrenched as the top three outside linebackers that leaves at least one more slot to fill at the position.

And more than likely that final outside linebacker spot will be chosen between two players, Everett Brown and Gabe Miller.  And both have played well so far in the preseason.

The Redskins also placed tight end Mike Caussin on it’s Injured Reserve list.
