Redskins Get Down To 53

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.

Here are the rest of the moves:

Jets To Work Out LB Marquis Flowers

The Jets’ search for linebacker depth has led them to a former Patriot. On Tuesday, the Jets will audition outside linebacker Marquis Flowers, according to Manish Mehta of the Daily News (on Twitter). 

Flowers joined old friend Matt Patricia by signing with the Lions after he missed the Patriots’ initial cut this year. In October, the Lions cut him loose in order to claim cornerback Lenzy Pipkins, putting him back on the workout circuit. Over the last four weeks, Flowers has auditioned for the Texans, Chiefs, and Jaguars, but has yet to find a new home for the 2018 season.

Flowers has spent most of his career as a special teamer, but he did record 3.5 sacks for the Pats in 2017. If signed by the Jets, he’ll likely chip in on special teams while offering depth behind starting OLBs Brandon Copeland and Jordan Jenkins.

Chiefs Work Out Obi Melifonwu

The Chiefs worked out safety Obi Melifonwu and linebacker Marquis Flowers on Wednesday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). Melifonwu hasn’t done much at the pro level, but he offers potential as a second-round pick of the 2017 draft.

The 24-year-old Melifonwu played sparingly during his rookie campaign, compiling seven tackles in five games (one start). He was placed on IR twice during his first season, and he was waived/injured by the Raiders back in August. After clearing waivers, he landed on the team’s injured reserve. Earlier this month, the Raiders reached an injury settlement with him, making him a full fledged free agent. He worked out for the Cowboys, Patriots, and Saints, but did not sign with any of those clubs.

Flowers mostly played special teams for the Bengals in 2016, but he saw time on 361 snaps for the Patriots in 2017. The 26-year-old finished out the regular season with 30 tackles and 3.5 sacks and even started in two games. In the playoffs, he added another six tackles and one sack. This year, he missed the Pats’ final cut and had a brief regular season stint with the Lions.
