One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. God is good. #DAWGPOUND #Cleveland #Browns,” Paea tweeted.

Paea, 28, was cut by the Redskins this week in an effort to save cash and get down to the NFL’s mandated roster maximum. Paea started just one game for Washington in 2015 after getting 40 starts in his previous three years in Chicago. While his part-time role limited his overall numbers (19 tackles, 2.5 sacks), Paea was solid during his time on the field, ranking as Pro Football Focus‘ 45th interior defensive lineman, out of 128 qualified players.

Paea was slated to earn $3.3MM plus bonuses in 2016, a price that was too high for the Redskins. By cutting him, Washington saved a under $1MM against the cap.
