WASHINGTON– The Redskins have released two defenders in order to open up cap space.
Brown, 29, spent the past two seasons with the Redskins, totaling 223 tackles and a sack in 29 games.
The move is expected to save the team nearly $6 million.
McGee, 29, also spent the past two seasons with the Redskins.
After starting 10 games in 2017, McGee was only able to start 1 game in 2018 and had only 9 tackles and 1 sack.
The NFL Draft is projected to be deep along the defensive line, making it plausible that the Redskins could go with a younger, cheaper option.
