The Redskins cut two players from their practice squad and added two more Tuesday afternoon.
Washington cut center Tevita Stevens and replaced him with former Notre Dame standout Braxston Cave. The team also cut linebacker Chaz Sutton, whom they had signed on Monday, and replaced him with former Texas pass rusher Jackson Jeffcoat.
Cave (6 feet 3, 305 pounds) went undrafted out of Notre Dame in 2013 and originally signed with Cleveland. He wound up spending the entire 2013 season on the New England Patriots’ practice squad. Cave also spent training camp and the preseason with New England before getting cut on Saturday.
Stevens spent much of last season and all of this offseason and preseason with Washington before getting cut on Saturday and re-signed to the practice squad on Sunday.
Jeffcoat (6-3, 253) signed with Seattle as an undrafted free agent this past May. The Seahawks waived him on Aug. 25, however. Jeffcoat recorded four tackles in the preseason. Jeffcoat played at Texas and as a senior led the Longhorns with 86 tackles and 13 sacks before earning all-American honors and receiving the Ted Hendricks Award – the honor for the nation’s top defensive end – as did current Redskinand former Texas standout Brian Orakpo in 2008.
Sutton didn’t last a full 24 hours with the Redskins, and didn’t even get to practice with the team, as players had the day off on Tuesday.
