Redskins release CB Tracy Porter
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Oft-injured cornerback Tracy Porter was released by the Redskins on Wednesday, the team announced. Porter was not at the start of OTAs on Tuesday due to a missed flight.

The corner did not see much action in Washington after signing a two-year, $6 million contract, appearing in just two games due to shoulder issues. His release will save the Redskins $2.2 million against the salary cap. 

Porter has 10 interceptions over seven NFL seasons with the Saints, Broncos, Raiders and Redskins.

Redskins RB Alfred Morris ready for power running game
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Running back Alfred Morris has excelled during his first three seasons in the NFL, and this year, the Redskins' back is eager to get the ball as the team transitions from a zone-blocking scheme to a power style, per ESPN.com. 

The strategy requires less cutting and more downhill running, something Morris, who has rushed for nearly 4,000 yards, is familiar with from his time in college. 

"I feel I'm better at downhill plays anyway," he said. "You know what's coming. It's a knockout, drag-out style of play. I don't shy away from contact. It's right up my alley. I thoroughly enjoy it."
