Redskins cut Kapri Bibbs, signs three players to contracts
The Washington Redskins have cut running back Kapri Bibbs in a rash of moves that also included signing three other players to contracts, according to the team.
The Redskins also parted ways with defensive end Marcus Smith while signing long snapper Andrew East, tight end Matt Flanagan and defensive back Josh Holsey. In addition, they placed long snapper Nick Sundberg on the injured reserve list.
Bibbs was in his second season in Washington. In 10 games this year, he rushed for 101 yards and three touchdowns off of 20 carries, good for an average of 5.1 yards per attempt. He also hauled in 13 receptions for 102 yards and a score.
The 25-year-old, who played his collegiate football at Colorado State University, went undrafted but signed with the Denver Broncos as a free agent in May 2014.
He ended up spending three seasons in Denver, only seeing the field in 2016 when he carried the ball 29 times for 109 yards.
Smith played in just one game for the Redskins this year. A former first-round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles, Smith has totaled just 32 tackles and 6.5 sacks over the course of five NFL seasons between the Eagles, the Seattle Seahawks and the Redskins.
Washington appeared primed to challenge for the NFC East crown after a strong 6-3 start to the season, but they have since sputtered, losing four straight games. Most recently, the Redskins were annihilated by the New York Giants by a score of 40-16.
The Redskins also lost starting quarterback Alex Smith to a devastating leg injury back on Nov. 18 during a loss to the Houston Texans.
