The Washington Football Team officially waived TE Dylan Cantrell with an injury designation on Thursday.
Cantrell will revert to injured reserve on Friday should he pass through waivers unclaimed
Cantrell, 26, is a former sixth-round pick of the Chargers back in 2018. He signed a four-year, $2,616,844 contract that included a $156,844 signing bonus but was waived coming out of the preseason.
From there, Cantrell was on and off of the Chargers’ roster before joining the Cardinals last year. He had a brief stint with the Patriots before Washington signed him to their practice squad and brought him back on a futures contract this past January.
During his college career at Texas Tech, Cantrell caught 158 passes for 1,873 yards receiving and 18 touchdowns over the course of four seasons and 40 games. He also rushed for three yards and a touchdown.
