Redskins waive Brandyn Thompson, again

The Washington Redskins waived rookie cornerback Brandyn Thompson for the second time in as many weeks, the team announced Tuesday evening. Washington also cut running back Tristan Davis from its practice squad.

The two moves wrap up a busy 24 hours for the 3-5 team.

To recap: The Redskins also waived wide receiver Donte Stallworth, tight end Dominique Byrd and defensive end Darrion Scott.

They signed wide receiver David Anderson, defensive end Kentwan Balmer and cornerback Domonique Johnson.

In case you missed them earlier, here are the links to Anderson’s signing, Stallworth’s release, Scott and Byrd’s releases and Balmer’s signing.

Thompson’s release marks the third time this season that the Redskins have parted ways with him. He started the season on the 53-man roster, then was waived and signed to the practice squad when Phillip Buchanon returned to action after Week 4. Thompson was promoted to the 53-man roster before the Buffalo game, waived the following day, re-signed to the practice squad last Wednesday and promoted to the 53-man roster once again last Saturday.

Davis spent two weeks on the practice squad.
