Redskins Waive Quarterback Stephen Morris
The Washington Redskins have made another change to their QB situation. According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport the Redskins have waived QB Stephen Morris.
After the #Redskins traded for QB Kevin Hogan on Friday, they’ve waived QB Stephen Morris today, I’m told.

Morris signed a reserve/futures contract with Washington after the 2017/18 season on January 2nd. Morris has spent time with the Jaguars, Eagles, and Colts but he’s yet to appear in a single regular-season game.
Morris was slated to be the Redskins 3rd-string QB going into the 2018 season until Washington agreed to trade their 2018 sixth-round pick to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for QB Kevin Hogan and Cleveland’s sixth-round pick.
The Redskins only have room for three quarterbacks on their 53-man roster, so it made no sense to keep Morris around. Morris will now have a chance to join another team before offseason workouts begin.
