Per the deep Redskin insider
The Redskins are about ready to have 3 punters which should cause the release of on of the two punters on the team.
Redskins are expected to sign Pro Bowl punter Hunter Smith tomorrow, a league source said Thursday, and Smith will join the team for minicamp May 1-3. He has agreed to terms on a one-year deal.
A solid punter and holder, a potential emergency QB as well. This is a good signing.
Possible negative pings,
Wide receiver Kelley Washington, formerly of the New England Patriots, is scheduled to participate in next weekend's minicamp, a league source said. Kelley, from Stephens City, Va., is a six-year veteran.
Is this an indication of what is not occuring with Thomas and Kelly or a positive sign that a local six year vet is being provided an opportunity to provide some depth.
Draft, then Mini-Camp...Never a dull day in Redskin's World
