The punter battle that never really was is reportedly over. Tom Schad of the Washington Times is reporting that punter Blake Clingan has been released by the Redskins. This leaves Robert Malone as the only punter on the roster, and the apparent winner of the competition. There have been no reports of any interest by the team in bringing in another punter to compete. There are no reports of a corresponding roster move, so once the cut becomes official the Redskins will have 89 players on their roster.
Updates will be posted as they become available.
