The Redskins are cleaning out their lockers at Redskins Park today and some players will be doing so for the last time. Who might not be back in a Redskins uniform in 2012? Here’s a look at some players who were on the roster yesterday who might not return.
Rocky McIntosh—This one’s easy. According to multiple reports, McIntosh was late for meetings this week, was inattentive when he got there, and blew off curfew on New Year’s Even in Philadelphia. He was inactive against the Eagles and he is likely to be looking for a new employer in March.
John Beck—He is under contract and it is possible that he’ll be back as the third-string QB. It seems more likely, however, that he will be released and allowed to move on.
Donte Stallworth—He had a good stretch of games after he was brought back a week after his release. But he’ll turn 32 next season and his spot on the team could fall victim to a youth movement. He could, however, get a contract and a chance to earn a spot in training camp.
Anthony Armstrong—At 28, he’s far from old, but in 14 games he had just seven receptions for 103 yards. He had one catch after his spectacular, leaping, game-winning catch in Week 12 in Seattle. There’s a chance he bounces back to his 2010 form but there’s also a chance that he’s not on the team.
Terrence Austin—It’s hard to say that he was a disappointment because he was a seventh-round pick. But many were looking for him to emerge as a potential slot receiver but he didn’t take the next step.
David Anderson—His partial-season tryout ended up with him being on the inactive list the last three games, not a good sign for long-term employment.
Mike Sellers—At age 37 next year, you have to figure that Sellers is done. But many figured that he woldn’t make it 16 games on the roster this year, so you never know.
Oshiomogho Atogwe—The Redskins gave him a good chunk of guarantee money in 2011 so the chances are good that the stays. But it wouldn’t be stunning if they decided to eat the contract and move on.
