The Washington Redskins have one of the worst rushing defenses in the entire NFL. The team made a change along the defensive line on Wednesday.
The team released defensive lineman Kendall Reyes after just two appearances and 36 total snaps. Reyes signed a one-year deal, $2.5 million deal in the spring after being released by the San Diego Chargers.
Redskins have cut DE Kendall Reyes, a person familiar with the situation said.— Mike Jones (@MikeJonesWaPo) October 5, 2016
He will keep all of his million-dollar signing bonus, and if he chooses to he can collect all of his $1.4 million salary since he was on the 53-man roster as of Week 1. Reyes won’t earn any of the $500,000 incentives that were listed in the deal.
Releasing Reyes gives the Redskins one roster spot to work with. It's unknown exactly what the team will do with the spot with injuries affecting many positions across the board, including safety.
Was told tuesday the Redskins weren't signing Donte Whitner. But: No opening then. Now there is. Stay tuned.— John Keim (@john_keim) October 5, 2016
