Five thoughts on releasing Mason Foster:— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) July 23, 2019
1 Redskins created $4M in cap space
2 They must really like SDH and Bostic.
3 They are now pretty thin at ILB now.
4 Seemed likely prior to Reuben Foster in jury. Not after.
5 They clearly wanted money for something. For what?

Lot of concern about lack of depth at ILB for the #Redskins. How much worse off is WSH if it brings in Manti Te'o or Will Compton in camp? There are always run-defending, depth ILB's available if that's what they viewed Foster as at this point.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) July 23, 2019
So, uhhh, yeah, I’ll be updating this soon after today’s news... https://t.co/UUE1qur7y3— Kareem Copeland (@kareemcopeland) July 23, 2019
Good time to look at the Jon Bostic profile.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) July 23, 2019
- 2nd Rd pick in 2013 (50th o-all)
- Played for Bears, Pats, Lions, Colts and Steelers
- Made 28 starts for INDY & PIT over the last 2 yrs
- Has averaged 85 tackles, 1.5 sacks the past 2 yrs
- Could start for #Redskins in WK-1
Yup. What’s worse in my opinion is that the team has been off for 5 weeks. No practice, no film, no additions, no games, etc. I have zero problem with Mason being released, frankly he and I had already discussed that this was always a possibility.

But, that's life in the NFL. There is no loyalty and 99% of players leave unhappy in the end no matter how long they play.— Rick Snider (@Snide_Remarks) July 23, 2019
Squeeze to take pay cut on Monday before camp ✓— Ross Tucker (@RossTuckerNFL) July 23, 2019
Cut on Tuesday before camp ✓
One year into multi-year contract ✓
After breaking leg playing for them in playoffs in January ✓
But please tell me again about players needing to "honor" their contracts. https://t.co/4mi3sVSGd1
Well, the things I said on this morning's RCC podcast did not age well... https://t.co/b4dexkyDUK— Chad Ryan (@ChadwikoRCC) July 23, 2019
Now say Trent Williams won’t show up at Training Camp pic.twitter.com/Lcx6ldKTXD— Not Robert Griffin (@Pseudo_RGIII) July 23, 2019
One other thing on the Brandon Scherff talks: #Redskins have been pretty good at getting these deals done just before camp (Trent Williams and Ryan Kerrigan come to mind)— Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) July 23, 2019
Remember, the last two mega extensions with draft picks the #Redskins did were on July 29th (Ryan Kerrigan) and August 29th (Trent Williams). This is about when the team has gotten hot-and-heavy in negotiations with guys going into their final season(s).— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) July 23, 2019
If I'm the #Redskins Donald Penn would be on "Redskins One" already en route to Ashburn. He's not Trent, but he could definitely hold down the position if this thing drags out. And even if Trent DOES return, he's good depth. #Skins can't appear desperate. #HTTR— Disco (@discoque5) July 22, 2019
I don't expect the Redskins to give Trent Williams a new deal. They've paid him $42M for the 35 games he has played in over the last 3 years. Paid him $100M over nine seasons. I think they'll dig their heels in for a while. Freeing up money is likely more Scherff related.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) July 23, 2019
Adrian Peterson owes millions in debt.— Troy Machir (@TroyMachir) July 23, 2019
Mason Foster's agent is going off on Twitter.
Trent Williams is holding out.
Josh Norman jumped over a bull.
Yep, Redskins training camp is finally here.
Despite being the highest-earning running back in NFL history (nearly $100M), Adrian Peterson owes millions to a Pa. lender and now faces a third adverse judgment over delinquent loans totaling nearly $10m.— Daniel Wallach (@WALLACHLEGAL) July 23, 2019

Oh good. Odell Beckham talking about the Giants. It had been almost 24 hours.— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) July 23, 2019
Actually, he’s talking about why he was talking about the Giants. Thankfully, he adds “It’s time to move on.”
Sure. See you tomorrow, O!pic.twitter.com/25w3t2JEjU
Idk why we have contracts in the NFL. Imagine planning your life thinking your gonna make 4 million. You do everything right show up for work in shape ready to go and they tell you your fired and your not getting a penny CUT THROAT— Chris Baker (@cbakerswaggy) July 23, 2019
“Oh Brett your job is so easy you just watch football all day”— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) July 23, 2019
Counter point: I just watched Tom Compton and Mike Remmers almost get an innocent man killed for ten hours straight. That shit wasn’t easy to stomach.
Mark Sanchez retires from NFL, takes ESPN job https://t.co/lrVwGFePdl— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) July 23, 2019
If there was one thing that stood out during Sanchez’ brief time in Washington it was his personality. Extremely likeable and funny every time he spoke, hope this works out for him https://t.co/tIWi5CQYIU— Mark Bullock (@MarkBullockNFL) July 24, 2019
The #Texans don’t expect Jadeveon Clowney to report to camp tomorrow and may not anytime soon. But there’s reason to believe he’ll be in uniform — and ready — for the Sept. 9 opener at New Orleans. @nflnetwork @NFLTotalAccess pic.twitter.com/NRbf2KciiY— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) July 23, 2019
