From the Redskins Insider
The Redskins have released three players: Vernon Fox, Babatunde Oshinowo and Dorian Smith.
To be quite honest the only person on this list I had heard of was saftey Vernon Fox. Further research shows me that both DE Dorian Smith and DT Oshi..errr Oshen ahh Oshin..whatever haven't been on the team very long at all. Dorian Smith infact had been signed, released and re-signed Aug. 12 so who knows if he'll be back sometime on a practice squad.
One thing that's interesting to me is why is Derek Devine still occupying a roster spot on this team? With the 80 man roster rule in effect these spots are of higher value than a 4th string QB.
Vernon Fox had been struggling and Kareem Moore and other young members of our secondary have been impressive early. Also Gregg Blache said he was fine rolling with young talent.
The Redskins must release two more players by Tuesday to comply with the league roster limit of 75.
