And here it is, the 32nd and final team’s roster cuts. Their most notable release was the previously announced cutting of former first-round pick Josh Doctson. Of the stuff that’s new, not much is shocking. A couple of years ago, 2017 fourth-round running back Samaje Perine was hyped up as a potential future starter. The Oklahoma product, who had 603 rushing yards as a rookie, was cut today.
Veteran receiver Brian Quick, who had 564 yards with the Rams in 2016, was let go as well. Washington also parted ways with cornerback Adonis Alexander, a Virginia Tech product who they drafted in the sixth round of the 2018 Supplemental Draft.
Robinson originally entered the league as a seventh-round pick of the Lions back in 2015. He spent the next three seasons with Detroit, and started eight games for them between 2016 and 2017. He got traded to the Panthers just before the start of last season, but was released a few weeks later. He was picked up by the Jaguars in November, and ended up starting a game for them.
The Redskins lost swing tackle Ty Nsekhe in free agency this offseason, which makes the Williams situation all the more unsettling for them. Williams is apparently seeking a new contract, and hopefully they can get him back in the fold soon. Ideally, Robinson won’t be seeing the field very much.

Landry Jones‘ short time in Jacksonville has come to an end. On Monday, the Jaguars released the quarterback, according to a team announcement.
The Jaguars signed Jones on Halloween for insurance after Blake Bortles suffered a left shoulder injury. Now that Bortles is in the clear, the Jaguars felt comfortable enough to release Jones, leaving Cody Kessler as the team’s only backup QB.
Up until the Jags deal, Jones spent his entire NFL career with the Steelers. In a limited sample of playing time, Jones completed 64% of his throws with eight touchdowns against seven interceptions. Among the quarterbacks who have thrown at least 160 passes since 2013, Jones ranks 35th in passer rating and 26th in adjusted net yards per attempt, but it’s difficult to assign much relevance to those numbers given his lack of reps.
To fill Jones’ place on the roster, the Jags signed offensive lineman Corey Robinson. The fourth-year pro has 24 career games to his credit, including eight starts.
Overall, nothing too noteworthy. The Patriots interestingly continue to work out quarterbacks, bringing in former Raiders third-rounder Connor Cook for a tryout. New England has Bryan Hoyer firmly entrenched behind Tom Brady, but also recently worked out Landry Jones.
Meanwhile, the Titans seem set to bring in a new long snapper, as the team also worked out veteran Jon Condo today.
Like Newhouse, Robinson was sent to the Panthers via trade, as Carolina shipped a conditional 2020 seventh-round pick to Detroit in exchange for the 26-year-old. Those conditions were evidently tied to Robinson’s time on the Panthers’ roster and were not met, tweets Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer, who notes Carolina will now recoup that draft selection.
Robinson, a seventh-round pick in the 2015 draft, appeared in 23 games and made eight starts during his first three years in the NFL, all of which came with the Lions. He played in the Panthers’ first two contests of 2018, but only spent time on special teams (zero offensive snaps, three ST snaps).
With Rudock out of the picture, Matt Cassel will serve as the backup to quarterback Matthew Stafford. Freeny conceivably could have made the roster based on his familiarity with head coach Matt Patricia, but the Lions went in another direction.
The Panthers also acquired offensive lineman Corey Robinson from the Lions earlier today. The 26-year-old had spent his entire three-year career in Detroit, starting eighth of his 23 games. Carolina sent Detroit a conditional 2020 seventh-rounder in the deal.
