Washington takes first step in trimming their roster

Trimming the fat: Redskins make more cuts

8/27/13 in NFL   |   JenX63   |   33157 respect

Washington has taken the first steps towards hitting that magic number in preparation for regular season football. It was announced earlier  today that the following players have been waived: 
LB Ricky Elmore
FB Eric Kettani
K John Potter
WR Chip Reeves
LB Quan Sturdivant

It was also announced today that Veteran WR Donte Stallworth's contract had been terminated.

As a long time fan, I have to admit it saddens me when the veterans get cut. That being said, ths "new" team has made great strides in the past 2 years to become a contender again. While I am sad to see my favorites go, I know it is important to push forward in the direction the team has been going if I want to see a Redskins SB victory.

There are still more cuts to be made. I am glad I am not the one having to make those hard choices.

Yep, I know, but we have to think down the line. I really think we can get to the Super Bowl this year with the team that has been put together. Kudos to Shanahan! (yeah, i just said that)

 Aww damn!!!! I just got home, and  sad over Donte.  I, too, understand the necessity of getting the healthiest, most talented team when they start the regular season, but I'm still sad.
