Redskins Waive OLB Chris Odom & DB Kenny Ladler


The Washington Redskins announced that they’ve also waived OLB Chris Odom and DB Kenny Ladler on Friday. 

Washington has already released CB Josh Norman and WR Paul Richardson, so new HC Ron Rivera is working quickly to reshape the team’s roster for the 2020 season. 

The Redskins will save an additional $1.32 million by releasing Odom and Ladler.

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 last April before joining the Redskins’ practice squad. He was eventually promoted to the active roster in late November.  

For his career, Odom has appeared in 11 games for the Packers and Redskins and recorded 13 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble.
