The Redskins cut veteran offensive lineman Mike McGlynn, wide receiver Rashad Ross and tight end Matt Veldman in a flurry of moves that reduced the roster to 75 ahead of Tuesday’s deadline. 

McGlynn, who was signed in March as a backup guard/center, had struggled at times during training camp. When starting right guard Chris Chester played a series at center Saturday night in Baltimore, it was clear the Redskins were attempting to see if he could be Kory Lichtensteiger’s backup in a pinch. The emergence of rookie Spencer Long and a bounce back training camp from Josh LeRibeus also did not help McGlynn. 

Ross, meantime, did not receive any snaps on offense against the Ravens. Veldman, signed Aug. 14, did not play at M&T Bank Stadium.

On Saturday, teams must reduce rosters from 75 to the final 53 by 4 p.m.
