Redskins Cuts 2012: Redskins Announce List Of Final Cuts

The Washington Redskins officially released their list of cuts and other roster moves shortly after 9 p.m. Friday night. The team had until that hour to trim their active roster to a maximum 53 players.

The following players were waived:

WR Anthony Armstrong, WR Terrence Austin, DB Travon Bellamy, FB Dorson Boyce (injured), T Tom Compton, C Erik Cook, QB Jonathan Crompton, RB Tristan Davis (injured), NT Marlon Favorite, C Grant Garner, LB Donnell Holt, NT Delvin Johnson, LB Brian McNally (Waived with injury settlement), TE Richard Quinn, T Willie Smith, CB Brandyn Thompson, LB Markus White, and DE Doug Worthington.

The following players were released:

DE Kentwan Balmer was placed on the Reserve/Left Squad list.

Safety Tanard Jackson was placed on the Reserve/Suspended list. The NFL announced Friday that Jackson had been suspended indefinitely for a third violation of the league's substance abuse policy. That decision means that the Redskins currently have 52 players on their active roster.

NFL players become eligible for the practice squad Saturday at noon.

Anthony Armstrong Tweets That He's No Longer A Redskin

Anthony Armstrong used his Twitter account Friday night to announce that he has been released by the Washington Redskins. The wide receiver had been with the team since 2010. Armstrong showed appreciation for his fans and teammates in his announcement:

Armstrong's best season as a Redskin came in 2010, when he caught 44 passes for 871 yards and three touchdowns. His production dropped significantly last year, as he caught just seven balls for 103 yards and two scores.

This unofficially brings the active roster down to 53, though more moves may be executed before the 9 p.m. deadline.

Redskins Release DE Darrion Scott And TE Richard Quinn

The Washington Redskins released defensive end Darrion Scott on Friday as they try to trim their roster down to 53. The release of Scott brings the total number of defensive linemen on the Redskins' roster to six, according to John Keim of the Washington Examiner.

Scott, a former Ohio State Buckeye, has been in and out of the league since 2004. He played seven games for Washington in 2011 and recorded seven tackles. His best seasons came in 2005 and 2006, when he started 28 games for the Minnesota Vikings and amassed 9.5 sacks.

Tight end Richard Quinn was also cut on Friday. He has appeared in 30 games in his three-year NFL career, mostly on special teams. He played one game for the Redskins in 2011.

The NFL deadline to reduce rosters to 53 is Friday at 9 p.m. ET.

Brandon Banks Will Make 2012 Redskins Roster; Tim Hightower Cut, According To Report

John Keim of the Washington Examiner has confirmed that wide receiver Brandon Banks will make the Washington Redskins' 2012 roster.

This comes following an impressive performance in Wednesday's preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Showcasing his overall athleticism, Banks made a 47-yard catch, a 43-yard run, and a 22-yard punt return.

The night was not without its flaws though, as third-year veteran also dropped a pass, botched a handoff, and bobbled a punt.

On the flip side, Mark Maske of the Washington Post reported that the Redskins had cut running back Tim Hightower, who had struggled to come all the way back from offseason knee surgery.

The Redskins have until 9 p.m. Friday night to cut their active roster down to 53 players. So far, word has leaked out about 16 of the 22 cuts, which have been conveniently aggregated by Rich Campbell of The Washington Times.

The cuts are:

OFFENSE
WR Terrence Austin
OT Tom Compton
C/G Erik Cook
QB Jonathan Crompton
RB Tristan Davis
C/G Grant Garner
RB Tim Hightower
OT Willie Smith

DEFENSE
CB Travon Bellamy
NT Marlon Favorite
ILB D.J. Holt
NT Delvin Johnson
CB David Jones
ILB Bryan Kehl
LB Brian McNally
CB Brandyn Thompson
