Redskins cut 13 players, start adding UDFAs

ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins cut 13 players, making room for the same number of undrafted free agents they're about to sign. None of the cuts were surprising, though linebacker Gabe Miller, who played seven games for the Redskins last season, and Jerry Rice Jr. were among them.

The Redskins also waived nose tackle Isaako Aaitui, linebacker Steve Beauharnais, receiver Braylon Bell, offensive tackle Edawn Coughman, defensive lineman Kenny Horsley, guard Rishaw Johnson, offensive tackle Ty Nsekhe, cornerback Kenny Okoro and cornerback Trey Wolfe. Beauharnais played in three games with Washington last season, while Okoro played in two.

The Redskins also terminated the contracts of linebackers Ricky Sapp and Austin Spitler.

Washington has not yet signed all of its undrafted free agents, though general manager Scot McCloughan said they have agreed to deals with 13. One of them, Duke offensive tackle Takoby Cofield, received a signing bonus of $25,000, a source said. That's a hefty sum for an undrafted player, but Cofield received serious interest from a number of teams after the draft. Though he played left tackle at Duke, he'll be tried at guard and right tackle with Washington.
