The Washington Redskins announced the release of DL Adam Carriker, TE Richard Quinn and P Sav Rocca on Tuesday.

Carriker’s is obviously the most notable name in this group. He has been mentioned as a possible release candidate for a few months now, so this isn’t exactly shocking move by Washington.

Carriker, 29, signed a four-year, $20 million contract that included $3.7 million guaranteed with Washington back in 2012. He had a $6.5 million cap figure for the 2014 season. Releasing him will free up $2.98 million in available cap space.

Rocca, 40, was in the final year of his two-year, $2.24 million contract. He had a cap figure of $1,362,500, but the Redskins will save $1.2 million with this move.

In total, the Redskins should save $5.674 million with these five moves, according to OverTheCap.com.
