With NFL free agency officially opening for business at the stroke of midnight tonight, the Skins made several roster cuts this afternoon. The fellas getting the axe …
- Rock Cartwright
- Antwaan Randle-El
- Randy Thomas
- Ladell Betts
- Fred Smoot
Can’t say I’m overly emotional about any of these guys leaving D.C., although you never like to lose a guy with the lateral running abilities of Randle-El, to say nothing of his ability to sometimes successful fair catch the ball.
(Really though, kinda sad to see Rock go — he was our little Rudy out there.)
Update: From Rick Maese, Cornellius Griffin has also been cut. Expect more names to come …
Update 2: These cuts went down after Mr. Irrelevant’s business hours. We’re sure you already know about them by now, but just to have the complete list, they are: Todd Collins, Marcus Mason, Eddie Williams and J.D. Skolnitsky. Pour a little bourbon out for Todd Collins tonight, won’t you?
