    04/27/16DBDavid BrutonLegPROBABLEWashington and Bruton agreed to a contract Monday, Stephen Czarda of the team's official site reports.

    The veteran safety primarily served on special teams during his seven-year stint with the Broncos, but eight starts litter his 104 career games. Last season, he received three nods in 13 appearances before suffering a season-ending broken right fibula in Week 15, finishing with 49 tackles (37 solo), two interceptions, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and one sack. Although he missed Denver's run to Super Bowl glory, he'll have the opportunity to lock down the first regular starting gig as a professional with Washington.

    04/27/16DBChris CulliverKneeQUESTIONABLECulliver was released by the Redskins on Monday.

    Culliver signed a four-year, $32 million deal with the Redskins just last offseason, but made only six appearances for Washington prior to suffering a torn ACL and MCL during a November practice. Not only is Culliver a high-priced veteran coming off an injury, but the Redskins also drafted cornerback Kendall Fuller in the third round, and made a huge splash by adding All-Pro corner Josh Norman recently as well. Given those considerations, the 27-year-old Culliver was made expendable and will now look to land elsewhere prior to the season.

    04/27/16RBSilas ReddSuspensionSUSPENDThe NFL has suspended Redd indefinitely for a violation of the league's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Bans of this variety are due to continued positive tests, which is evident as Redd has yet to serve a four-gamer for a similar violation due to his recovery from a torn ACL and MCL. Once healthy enough to return to the field, he'll have to bide his time and do his due diligence considering NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will be in charge of any reinstatement effort.

    04/27/16DBJalen CollinsSuspensionSUSPENDCollins has been suspended for the first four games of the upcoming season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

    Collins is still eligible to partake in all offseason and preseason activities, but will have to miss the first quarter of the regular season. A second round selection last year, Collins was hoping to carve out a larger role in the Falcons' secondary this term, and although he very well may still, his absence will open opportunities for his teammates to begin the campaign.
