Redskins Promote CB Deshazor Everett, Release DE Frank Kearse

The Washington Redskins announced Saturday that they’ve promoted CB Deshazor Everett to their active roster and released DE Frank Kearse to make room for him.

Kearse, 26, is a former seventh-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2011. However, he lasted just a few months in Miami before he later signed on with the Panthers.

Since then, Kearse has played for the Titans and Cowboys before joining the Redskins on a one-year contract back in May. He’s been on and off of the Redskins’ roster in recent weeks.

In 2014, Kearse appeared in 15 games for the Redskins and recorded 15 tackles and three sacks.

Everett, 23, originally signed on with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out Texas A&M back following this year’s NFL Draft. He lasted just a few months with Tampa Bay before he was cut and later signed by the Redskins.

Unfortunately for Everett, he was unable to make the team’s 53-man roster coming out of the preseason, but he was quickly signed to the team’s practice squad before the start of the regular season.

Everett has yet to appear in an NFL game.
