WASHINGTON — The Redskins have cut defensive end Kendall Reyes, according to an NFL source.
Reyes was signed in March and made a minimal impact on the field during training camp and the first four games of the regular season. He was only active against Pittsburgh and Cleveland and missed two other games with a groin injury. He played 19 snaps against the Browns on Sunday.
And yet Reyes was Washington’s second-biggest free agent signing this past offseason behind star cornerback Josh Norman. Reyes signed a one-year, $2.25 million with $1 million of that guaranteed. He played the first four years of his career in San Diego with the Chargers and was familiar with defensive coordinator Joe Barry.
The Redskins defensive line is back down to six players currently: Ziggy Hood, Chris Baker, Ricky Jean Francois, Cullen Jenkins, Anthony Lanier, Matt Ioannidis.
