Redskins Release CB Tracy Porter, Free Up $2.3M In Cap Space


Washington officially announced the release of veteran CB Tracy Porter on Wednesday.


Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports that the Redskins are releasing veteran CB Tracy Porter on Wednesday.

  • This comes shortly after the news that veteran G Chris Chester was also being released.

Porter, 28, had one year remaining on his two-year, $6 million contract that included $2 million guaranteed. He was set to make a base salary of $2.25 million for the 2015 season.

According to, releasing Porter will free up $2,296,875 in available cap space while creating $1 million in dead money.

In 2014, Porter appeared in just three games for the Redskins and recorded five tackles and a pass defense, so it’s really not surprising to see them move on and give some of their younger players an opportunity.
