Washington Football Team doesn’t claim any players on waivers, Timon Parris claimed by Falcons

Nobody new on the 53-man roster...yet

NFL: The Washington Football Team-Srimmage Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Washington Football Team was #2 on the waiver priority list, but did not have any successful waiver claims. That either means they didn’t put in any claims, or they put in a claim for Deion Calhoun who was claimed by the Cincinnati Bengals who were #1 on the priority list(UPDATE: Washington didn’t make a claim). Any players claimed today had to be placed on the claiming team’s 53-man roster. There were several players who seemed to be a good fit for Washington, but the team didn’t commit to any of them yet.

Ron Rivera said the team would be looking at wide receiver after the team only kept 5 on their initial 53-man roster. There are still several WRs who are now free agents. The focus now seems to shift to filling out Washington’s 16-man practice squad. Several players that were released yesterday will likely be added, along with a few at positions like RB where there are no released options.

The Washington Football Team will not have the chance to sign OT Timon Parris who was claimed by the Atlanta Falcons. Parris spent the last two seasons with the team as a practice squad player, an was reportedly not likely to be given another chance to develop here. Good luck Atlanta!

In other former WFT players news, S Sean Davis has re-signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers after being released yesterday. Adrian Peterson landed a 1-year deal with the Detroit Lions.
