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.
