Redskins make a variety of roster moves
The Washington Redskins’ season is but a game old, but the coaching staff and front office are in mid-season form when it comes to adjusting the roster. In the few days that have followed the team’s gut-wrenching loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday the Redskins have made several adjustments to their roster.
The Redskins have waived/injured cornerback Greg Stroman and subsequently placed him on the injured reserve list. Stroman was drafted by the Redskins in the seventh round of the 2018 draft out of Virginia Tech. In 2018, Stroman played in 15 games, recording 38 tackles, 1 interception and 1 forced fumble.
The team also waived tight end J.P. Holtz, a move that seems to suggest that Jordan Reed is close to making his return. Holtz has since been claimed off of waivers by the Chicago Bears.
The Redskins also waived linebacker Darrell Williams from the practice squad.
The team signed cornerback Simeon Thomas from the Seattle Seahawks’ practice squad and placed on the active roster. Thomas, a graduate of Louisiana, has not seen live NFL game action.
The Redskins signed defensive lineman T.Y. McGill who last played with the Los Angeles Chargers. The Redskins will be McGill’s seventh NFL team since joining the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2015. McGill has appeared in 34 NFL games recording 23 tackles and 17 quarterback hits.
