Redskins Waive LB Cassanova McKinzy, Claim TE Hale Hentges


The Washington Redskins officially waived LB Cassanova McKinzy on Monday and claimed TE Hale Hentges off of waivers from the Colts.

McKinzy, 26, originally signed on with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of Auburn back in May of last year. Tampa Bay wound up waiving him during the preseason and he caught on with the Rams’ practice squad.

Los Angeles signed him to a futures contract but made him one of their final roster cuts as they trimmed down to the 53-man limit. From there, he signed on with the Redskins last year and has been on and off of their roster ever since. 

In 2019, McKinzy has appeared in three games for the Redskins and recorded one tackle and one sack.
