Redskins release fan favorite LB Nico Marley

The Mason/Brennan Hype! king for 2017 has been released

NFL: Washington Redskins at Baltimore Ravens Derik Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Undrafted free agent LB Nico Marley was a fan favorite all summer. The notoriety of being music legend Bob Marley’s grandson(for most people) was quickly surpassed by his aggressive play on the field. The undersized(5’8”, 200lbs) LB from Tulane looked like a longshot when he was signed, but quickly had people questioning if he could be a London Fletcher-like story in the NFL. Marley will reportedly be released today, but is eligible for the Redskins practice squad if they feel he an be developed at this level, but nothing is guaranteed.
