The annual post-draft roster churn has commenced for the Washington Redskins.

The team released two players yesterday, according to the NFL transactions report. Kicker Jake Rogers was waived and the contract of wide receiver David Gettis was terminated.

Neither player has played a game for the Redskins. Rogers was signed in March as competition for Kai Forbath. When the team drafted Zach Hocker on Saturday Rogers became expendable.

Gettis was with the Panthers from 2010-2013 but injuries limited him to just 17 games. The Redskins signed him as a free agent in January.

The Redskins currently have 80 players on their roster not including any undrafted free agents who may have been signed but not yet announced. The preseason limit is 90.

The team is expected to announce its college free agent signings before the start of its rookie minicamp, which gets underway on Friday.
