Ron Rivera Presser: “If there’s one position you cannot have a catastrophe at, it’s the offensive line.”

Ron Rivera speaks to the media after today's practice

Ron Rivera said the team worked through one position today as they continue to prepare for roster cuts on Saturday at 4pm. They will work through more positions throughout the week as they make some tough decisions. The lack of preseason games hurts undrafted players like Steven Sims Jr who made the team last year after a strong training camp/preseason. Rivera will work closely with Vice President of Player Personnel Kyle Smith, but the responsibility is his to make the cuts.

The team is looking for a complete tight end, something Rivera says the team had last year with Vernon Davis, but unfortunately he retired. Logan Thomas has been getting the most reps and attention at training camp this year, and Rivera said that he’s done a good job, and he likes the direction he’s headed.

Offensive line is one position you can’r have a catastrophe at, and Ron Rivera plans on keeping a good amount of them. The team has to evaluate players that are currently injured, and plan for who they want to try to get on their 16-man practice squad. Washington just traded for Raiders OL David Sharpe, and there are still a lot of questions about the depth(and the starters on the left side of the line).

Final roster:
