CSN Washington dot com. Geico sports net central update. Everybody I'm Julie Donaldson for CSN Washington dot com and it is cut down day and the NFL is. Teams cut their rosters down to 53 players and joining me now is our Redskins blogger rich Taylor are great rates some of the big names to go. Most surprisingly -- -- tire for the redskins' idea what why was this -- made. I think we hit it just that his knee was not making the progress that date they wanted to. He injured it last October. And not coming up all on eleven months here since like -- little over ten months since since he injured it against Carolina. And you know he he's been struggling to get through practices. He's been struggling get through. He just he had just five carries in the whole pre season. I just figured they decided they really couldn't wait for they needed help at running back. That's when he made that decision a lot of go. An aggressor receiver what are your -- Anthony Armstrong and get the Armstrong there was talk earlier in the day he was gonna go to Miami. Possibly in exchange for running back Steve Slaton but. That talk seems to have died down. I don't know if this -- threw -- still possibility. I could see them if that doesn't go through records scene and try to get some value for him. On and they could possibly let go or they might decide keep them. Right a little guy Brandon Banks he makes our roster would always say about it sticking around let you know I really think he made it you know they say that fourth pre season game doesn't mean a whole lot. I think against Tampa the Tampa Bay Bucs had a 43 yard run cut a 47 yard pass from scrimmage. I think that's what Mike Shanahan wanted to see Adam I don't think he can be an every down wide receiver. But I think giving -- contribute enough from scrimmage. To justify making the roster as a wide receiver slash kick returner very tiny little specialty -- about -- kill was kind of basically allot after his last pre season game but. No that would not be the case yeah that was that was one of the more surprising -- you signed as a free agent in the off season. He had moved to inside linebacker. Bomb and after Jonathan Goff was put on injured reserve early in the air. You know it seemed like he had a lot -- interception with a nice return on now on Wednesday against the bucks. But you know it's a matter of a numbers game Mike Shanahan said they're becoming some good football players I think that's when they -- had to let go. I thank you very much for it's Chandler as we cut down the rosters to 53 players. I'm Julie Donaldson for CSN Washington dot com. -- -- -- -- -- Sports net central. CSN Washington dot com.
