Carroll Phillips

Redskins Waive OLB Noah Spence

The Redskins waived Noah Spence on Tuesday, becoming the second NFC team to cut the fourth-year pass rusher this year. Washington promoted linebacker Carroll Phillips from its practice squad.

An in-season signing, Spence played seven games with Washington. He recorded one sack and three tackles in a backup role. The former second-round pick did not make the Buccaneers’ active roster this season. Unless Spence is claimed, he will again become a free agent.

Phillips played in 10 games with the Jaguars and Colts over the past two seasons. The former UDFA out of Illinois has made five career tackles. Despite making his NFL debut a year later, the 27-year-old Phillips is two years older than Spence.

Only one Washington edge defender — Ryan Kerrigan — has posted more than 2.5 sacks this season. The team’s premier sack artist has four in 10 games.

Bills To Meet With Laquon Treadwell

The Bills will meet with wide receiver Laquon Treadwell and outside linebacker Noah Spence on Tuesday, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport (on Twitter). Given their draft pedigrees, both could be intriguing low-risk pickups for Buffalo.

Treadwell is a former first-round pick of the Vikings who entered the NFL with lots of fanfare. Unfortunately, he hasn’t done a whole lot at the NFL level.

Spence, meanwhile, washed out of Ohio State’s program in college before transferring over to Eastern Kentucky University. He did well for the Ohio Valley Conference school, and parlayed that success into a second-round selection from the Bucs. He racked up 5.5 sacks as a rookie, but his sophomore season was largely lost to injury and he didn’t really produce in 12 games last year.

In addition to Treadwell and Spence, here are the other players that Buffalo has recently worked out, a list that includes a number of safeties (Twitter link via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle):

Colts Reach Roster Max

The Colts reached the 53-man limit on Saturday by cutting a number of players, including running back Charcandrick West. West, who has been toggled on and off of the Chiefs’ roster in recent years, hooked on with the Colts less than two weeks ago. Despite the season-ending injury suffered by D’Onta Foreman, he wasn’t able to make the final cut.

Also among the cuts – J’Marcus Webb, one of the club’s Week 1 starting tackles in 2018. Webb’s season was mostly lost to injury, and he’ll have to hook on elsewhere for 2019.

Here’s the rest of the Colts’ moves:
