The Redskins today cut veteran linebacker Mason Foster, one day before players are scheduled to report for training camp.
The move saves Washington $4 million against the salary cap.
Foster, who led the team in tackles last season, had been on the bubble throughout the offseason. The Redskins debated cutting him before free agency, but wanted to keep him around as insurance in case they needed a veteran starter.
After Reuben Foster tore his ACL during spring workouts, they signed Jon Bostic and liked what they saw from him.
