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.
