The Washington Football Team has released offensive lineman Kevin Pamphile just a month after signing him.
When the Washington Football Team announced the signing of offensive lineman Kevin Pamphile at the end of July, it was met with speculation that he could emerge as part of the team’s offensive line depth.
But now, it doesn’t appear that he will be a part of the team at all.
According to multiple reports, Washington elected to release the veteran offensive lineman on Thursday night. And per Ben Standig of The Athletic, the team has several O-Linemen coming to work out on Friday.
So, it would appear that Washington has their sights set on another offensive line target from the group they’re bringing in. Or perhaps they just weren’t impressed enough with Pamphile and wanted to give another player a chance to prove themselves.
The one thing that will be missed with Pamphile’s departure is experience. The six-year veteran had played in 56 games with 35 starts during his career, a mark that few of the young Washington backups could’ve matched. That said, the younger players on the team have more upside than Pamphile, so the team’s front office and coaching staff must’ve been comfortable that what they had was better than or equal to Pamphile.
At the moment, it appears that Steinmetz and former 49ers first-round pick Joshua Garnett will be among those in attendance for Washington for their O-Line workouts. More players will likely be called upon as well but either way, it seems that Washington is ready to add another player to their offensive line.
We’ll keep an eye on Washington’s O-line situation in the coming days. But with an open roster spot, it sure seems like they’re going to do something at the position.
