Chargers Release NT Ian Scott - Could Redskins be a Possible Landing Spot?

Per the San Diego Chargers have released Nose Tackle Ian Scott. Scott, who was the Chargers starter for the second half of the season last year, was expected to hold down the starting NT spot in 2010, but with the addition of Cam Thomas, a 6'3" 330 pound defensive linemen from North Carolina, Scott became expendable.

Thomas was a fifth round draft pick in this years NFL Draft, and may be better suited to handle two gap responsibilities in the Chargers 3-4 defense.

Scott, who is listed at 6' 3" 315 pounds, was a forth round draft pick of the Chicago Bears in 2003. For his career, he has appeared in 65 games with 40 starts.

It could make some sense for the Redskins to give this guy a look. We all know of the looming Haynesworth saga, and no one knows how Maake Kemoeatu will be following his return from a torn Achilles Tendon. It can never hurt to have extra competition in training camp.
