The Redskins have made two more roster cuts, parting with third-year offensive lineman Adam Gettis and rookie cornerback Bryan Shepherd. Those are the 11th and 12th moves made by the team as it works to trim the roster from 90 to 75 players by Tuesday’s 4 p.m. deadline.
Washington released nine players Sunday, and placed tight end Mike Caussin on injured reserve Thursday.
The Redskins have two more cuts to make to meet the 75-man limit.
Washington drafted Gettis in the fifth round of the 2012 draft, but he didn’t appear in any games as a rookie. Gettis suited up for 13 games last season, playing exclusively on special teams. He appeared to be a long shot to make the team this season, however, as he was buried on the depth chart at right guard behind starter Chris Chester and rookie Spencer Long.
Shepherd signed with Washington as an undrafted free agent this past spring. He played for North Dakota State. He found himself at a crowded position behind starters DeAngelo Hall and David Amerson, veteran backups E.J. Biggers and Tracy Porter, and rookie Bashaud Breeland and other young prospects Chase Minnifield and Richard Crawford.
