The Washington Redskins cut wide receiver David Gettis, according to the NFL daily transaction report.

Gettis, who entered the NFL in 2010 as a sixth-round pick by the Carolina Panthers, signed with Washington in January.

Gettis missed the 2011 campaign with a torn anterior cruciate ligament and appeared in two games in 2012. The Panthers released him in the preseason of 2013 on an injury settlement.

Gettis was one of only two receivers on the roster taller than 6 feet. But the Redskins elected not to keep him on the roster.

The Redskins also waived place kicker Jake  Rogers, who signed this offseason. Seventh-round pick Zach Hocker will compete with veteran Kai Forbath.
