- Garafolo mentions that this move was likely made to create a roster spot for S Brandon Meriweather.
Meriweather is returning from a two-game suspension for violating the league’s player-safety policy.
Washington used a sixth-round pick on Rambo last year, but he has struggled quite a bit in his first two years in the league. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 79 safety out of 86 qualifying players last year and No. 64 this season.
Rambo, 24, still has three years remaining his rookie contract that’s worth $2.261 million. He has a base salary of $495,000 for the 2014 season.
There’s a chance Rambo could clear waivers and end up on the team’s practice squad, but we won’t know until tomorrow.
