So long Mason Foster
 
The Redskins have informed ILB Mason Foster he will be released, according to a source.

I am not assuming here but maybe it has to do with freeing up cap space for our 2 lineman

While I'm not disappointed with this move, this is a surprising move given the fact we only have Harvey-Clemons and Holcomb behind Foster and Dion-Hamilton? I assume there is a chance we will resign Foster at lower cost or sign someone who has been released by a team recently.

Solid tackler but lacks speed and is horrible in coverage.. It's not a huge loss IMO.

Career grade of 59.8.

Meh

I'm hoping this means H-C or another young guy is showing a lot of promise.

Foster can't run with the backs in the NFC East and he is constantly bitching about something. It's time to go.

Jon Bostic is the guy IMO

Also wouldn't surprise me to see Ryan Anderson moved inside as well

Lets not forget the rookie Holcomb who had 100 tackles last yr in college

I totally forgot we signed Bostic, this move makes completely sense now.

Haven't forgotten about him, I'd love to see them two as a nice combo

Also, the Redskins could use the cap savings to possibly re-do tackle Trent Williams' contract. After releasing Foster, they'll have approximately $12 million cap space. Williams will likely miss the start of training camp as he remains upset over some of his medical care. It's uncertain if a new deal would appease him, however. He has two years remaining on his current contract.

The Redskins also want to extend guard Brandon Scherff, who is entering the final year of his contract. The sides started talking in January.

The moves saves 4 million? Pretty good...Iím betting this is more about what Keim says about our Oline

[QUOTE=EARTHQUAKE2689;1225547]Also wouldn't surprise me to see Ryan Anderson moved inside as well[/QUOTE]No chance.

Only way he plays inside is at strong side LB in a 4-3.

He lacks the speed and skill set to play ILB in a 3-4.

We disagree on that.
I think he has highly underrated coverage abilities. He's a smart player who made some nice plays in zone coverage.
He had some bad games and is not athletic, but on many games his smartness and toughness made up for it IMO.

Now, maybe last year's instagram turmoil wasn't 100% cleared up, and if the move ends up helping solving the TW and/or the BS situation, I'm fine with it.
