The Redskins released five players today, trimming their roster to 75 guys a few days ahead of the September 1 deadline. Released were CB Michael Grant, LB Alfred Fincher, DT Michael Marquardt, WR Marques Hagans, and T Devin Clark.
Whether the releases provided a spark or not is up for discussion, but there’s no doubt that today’s practice was spirited and lively, with plenty of pushing and jawing despite it only being a shorts-and-shells deal. Kareem Moore and Marcus Mason were on the side doing rehab work. Carlos Rogers did not practice again, nor did Clinton Portis. And Albert Haynesworth missed the practice with stomach issues.
Afterward, though, a lot of the talk surrounded the cuts.
