The Washington Redskins have released DE Kendall Reyes, after the 2016 free agent acquisition played only two games and seven months with the team.
Reyes, a 2nd round pick in 2012 by the San Diego Chargers, missed two of four games this year with a groin injury and made little impact in the games where he did see action.
Signed to a one-year deal worth up to $2.5 million ($1 million guaranteed), Reyes was supposed to be part of an effective defensive line rotation for the Skins this year. However, Washington’s defensive line has been poor again and is now ranked 31st against the run in terms of yards per carry.
Reyes isn’t entirely to blame for these problems — the defense has been bad when he’s been injured — he is, apparently, the first to take the fall for it.
