As all NFL teams are required to do as of this date, the Washington Redskins released a number of players today in order to meet league roster requirements. The following players were waived, according to Redskins.com.
|Lennon Creer||RB||Louisiana Tech|
|Chris Campbell||OL||Eastern Illinois|
|Sam Kirkland||WR||Kent State|
|Monte Lewis||LB||Jacksonville State|
|Nick Martinez||OL||Oklahoma State|
|Beau Reliford||TE||Florida State|
|Morgan Trent (Injured)||CB||Michigan|
|Lance Lewis (Injured)||WR||East Carolina|
Additionally, the Skins traded defensive back Kevin Barnes to the Detroit Lions, for a conditional draft pick. The condition in this case is that Barnes make the team in Detroit. If that doesn’t happen then Barnes can be considered just another cut and the team gets nothing.
Veteran Kicker Neil Rackers was released by the team today as well. Final cuts to 53 players will occur on August 31. The Redskins have one pre-season game remaining.
