The Washington Redskins went from team-on-the-rise in 2012 to bottom-feeders in 2013, and a big part of that downfall was because of the team’s veterans not producing. Because of the lack of production from the veterans, a lot of players will find themselves without a job before the 2014 season. With that said, here are five veterans who won’t make Washington’s 53-man roster.
A backup to Tyler Polumbus last season, Tom Compton becomes expendable due to the selection of Morgan Moses in the 2014 draft. Compton isn’t outstanding in any one area, and he will be released by the time the regular season rolls around.
Although I like Santana Moss, the fact is he’s just not the weapon he once was. Moss was once one of the best slot receivers in the league. But at 35, Moss has become a shell of his former self, and he won’t make the final roster in Washington.
Injury-prone and ineffective, Chris Thompson is on his way out in Washington going into just his second NFL season. Thompson failed to show NFL-caliber talent in his first year in the league, and he could find himself out of a job because of it.
With Chris Chester, Spencer Long and Mike McGlynn all on Washington’s roster, there is no room for Adam Gettis to stick around. Gettis is a below-average player and is really just wasting a roster spot at this point.
The second running back on this list, Evan Royster will find himself released mainly due to the team’s depth at the running back position. With Lache Seastrunk, Silas Redd, Roy Helu and starter Alfred Morris on the roster, Royster will find himself looking for a new team.
