Quick Look at the Redskins Initial 53-Man Roster (2013)
- Updated: August 31, 2013
The Redskins started the day needing to get from 75 players to 53 players. Along the way they decided to keep 4 quarterbacks, which came as a surprise to everyone, and also decided to cut Chase Minnifield and Dejon Gomes. It should also be said that after Jarvis Jenkins and Rob Jackson serve their 4 game suspensions the Redskins will have to make room on the roster for them as well.
It’s possible that the team will watch the waiver wire in the next 24 hours and sign some otehr players and perhaps release some as well…there is also the possibility that the Redskins are looking for a team to trade Pat White to. Below is a quick look of the players we made the 53 man list.
