The Washington Redskins announced Monday that they’ve cut six players including DT Terrell McClain.
The full list of cuts includes:
- DL A.J. Francis
- DL Montori Hughes
- DL Terrell McClain
- TE Chris Bazile
- LB Cassanova McKinzy
- DB James Sample
The writing was clearly on the wall for McClain after the Redskins used their first-round pick on Da’Ron Payne and later selected Tim Settle in the fifth round.
McClain, 29, is a former third-round pick of the Panthers back in 2011. He lasted just over a year in Carolina before he was waived at the start of the 2012 season and later signed by the Patriots.
McClain later caught on with the Texans and spent two years in Houston before the Cowboys signed him to a three-year contract in 2014. The Redskins gave McClain a four-year, $21 million contract last year and he was set to make base salaries of $3.25 million and $4 million over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2017, McClain appeared in 12 games for the Redskins and recorded 20 tackles, two sacks, and a fumble recovery. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 120 interior defensive lineman out of 122 qualifying players.
