We reported yesterday that the Redskins cut cornerback D. J. Johnson, who was not sharp in a late-season stint as the nickel back last year. This brought on some questions about whether any other releases were imminent.
The answer is probably no.
The Redskins coaches took off a lot of the time during the two-week Super Bowl lead up and they are just getting back to work this week. They will continue evaluating the current roster and deciding who will go and who will stay.
There is no particular urgency for the Redskins to release any players. The Lions had to get rid of Titus Young because he was a disruption and they released defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch because he was due a $2 million roster bonus in the coming days and they knew they weren’t going to pay it.
The Redskins have no players in any such situations. They can take the rest of February to evaluate and decide how they are going to tackle their $4 million cap overage. Look for them to start to make moves during the first part of March leading up to the March 12 start of the league year.
Coaches continue player evaluations
