The Redskins have cut first-year punter Blake Clingan, who had battled Robert Malone for the job this past offseason, in training camp and the preseason.
Clingan had one punt in the preseason – on Monday against the Browns – and it traveled only 34 yards.
Clingan played for the University of Central Florida, concluding his career in 2010. He signed with the Detroit Lions in the offseason of 2013 but didn’t make the roster.
Malone, a third-year veteran, has recorded punts of 43 and 42 yards this preseason. The third-year veteran also kicked under Redskins special teams coach Ben Kotwica for the New York Jets in 2012 and 2013.
