ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins cut two more players, including a former draft pick, as they continue trimming the roster to 75. Washington cut guard Adam Gettis and corner Bryan Shepherd and need to cut two more players before Tuesday's 4 p.m. ET deadline.
Gettis did not have a great shot to make the final roster after Washington signed guard Shawn Lauvao in free agency and drafted Spencer Long. Also, fellow 2012 draft pick Josh LeRibeus reported to camp in better shape than he was a year ago and worked ahead of Gettis all of training camp.
Gettis was listed at 305 pounds, an increase from last season. But the Redskins' focus this offseason was finding bigger linemen inside and Gettis, even with the increase, was still on the smaller side at the position.
Shepherd, an undrafted free agent from North Dakota State, also was a major longshot to make the roster. The Redskins cut nine players Sunday, including veteran linebacker Rob Jackson, and earlier had placed tight end Mike Caussin on injured reserve.
The Redskins have to make final cuts by Saturday afternoon.
