Redskins Promote OLB Chris Odom, Cut LB Carroll Phillips


The Washington Redskins have promoted OLB Chris Odom to their active roster on Saturday and released LB Carroll Phillips to make room for him. 

Odom, 25, originally signed on with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas State back in 2017. It was his first opportunity with an NFL team.

The Falcons waived him as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit. The Packers claimed him off of waivers for the 2017 season, then waived him before the start of the 2018 season. 

Odom returned to the Falcons this past April before joining the Redskins’ practice squad. 

In 2017, Odom appeared in seven games for the Packers, recording six total tackles and one tackle for loss.
