2011 NFL Cuts: Washington Redskins Release Eric McBride, Xavier Fulton

The Washington Redskins continue to make a series of roster cuts as the 4 p.m. deadline to get down to 80 players looms. In a press conference after practice on Tuesday, Mike Shanahan confirmed five of the seven players the team needed to cut. They are Malcolm Kelly, Ben Chappell, Clint Stitser, Eric McBride and Xavier Fulton.

The first three on the list were previously reported, with Kelly being the big one. McBride is an outside linebacker from Richmond who didn't do much during camp, while Fulton was a spare offensive lineman that was drafted by the Buccaneers in the fifth round in 2009. Neither release comes as a surprise.

The Redskins also placed defensive lineman Jarvis Jenkins on injured reserve, freeing up another roster spot and allowing them to release one less player.

We'll be keeping track of all the roster moves that the Redskins make, on Tuesday and throughout the week, in this stream, but check out Hogs Haven for more information.
