Commanders Release Deshazor Everett

The Commanders have announced the release of four players, three of which were previously reported (Landon CollinsMatt Ioannidis, and Ereck Flowers). The newest addition to the list is safety Deshazor Everett, who also received his walking papers today.

Last month, Everett was charged with involuntary manslaughter as a result of a fatal car accident from December. Olivia Peters – who was Everett’s passenger – was killed. The 30-year-old turned himself into police after their investigation found that he was driving at more than twice the posted speed limit just before the crash. The players also suffered serious injuries, leading to the team placing him on the reserve/non-football injury list.

Everett, who joined Washington as an UDFA in 2015, had spent his entire NFL career in the nation’s capital. He saw time in 89 games (17 starts) for the organization, collecting 170 tackles, 11 passes defended, and two interceptions.

This past season, the 30-year-old finished with 10 tackles in 14 games, which the majority of his playing time coming on special teams.

Latest On Commanders’ Deshazor Everett

There has been a development with regards to Washington Commanders defensive back Deshazor Everett. As The Washington Posts’ Nicki Jhabvala tweets, he has been charged with involuntary manslaughter as a result of the fatal car accident he was involved in earlier this season.

As Grant Gordon of NFL.com adds, Everett turned himself into the Loudoun County Detention Center on Tuesday. He is being held on a $10,000 bond. The incident in question took place on December 23rd, and resulted in the death of Olivia Peters, who was Everett’s passenger. One day after the crash, the Commanders placed Everett on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list, as he suffered serious, but not life-threatening, injuries.

According to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, the 29-year-old was driving at more than twice the posted speed limit just before the crash. In a statement, the team said, “We are aware of these charges and are continuing to monitor the situation. We will have no further comment at this time“.

Everett continued his recent role of playing all-but exclusively on special teams in 14 games this season. He is under contract for one more season in Washington, the only franchise he has played for in the regular season during a seven-year career.

Washington Football Team Makes Christmas Eve Roster Moves

This afternoon the Football Team in our nation’s capital announced a number of roster moves leading up to their Sunday Night matchup in Dallas.

Washington was thankful to add some players back to the active roster from the reserve/COVID-19 list. Backup quarterback Kyle Allen, safety Kamren Curl, undrafted free agent linebacker Milo Eifler, and starting cornerback Kendall Fuller all made their way off the COVID list. They did lose defensive end Nate Orchard to the COVID list, though.

The return of Curl will be welcome as Washington placed starting safety Landon Collins on IR, along with rotational defensive end Daniel Wise. Curl spent most of his rookie season filling in for Collins as the starting safety last year.

Defensive back and core special teams player Deshazor Everett was placed on the reserve/Non-Football Injury list following a car accident that killed the passenger of the vehicle, 29 year-old Olivia S. Peters. It was reported by Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post that Everett was taken to the hospital with serious but not life-threatening injuries. The wreck is being investigated and it sounds like the Football Team is awaiting the results of the investigation before taking any further action.

The last move affecting Washington’s active roster was the release of defensive lineman Akeem Spence. Spence signed a week ago amidst the surge of COVID-19 positive tests.

Redskins Sign Deshazor Everett To Extension

The Redskins and safety Deshazor Everett have agreed to a three-year extension, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (via Twitter). The deal carries $6MM in base value, plus additional incentives, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport (Twitter link).

Everett was playing out the final year of the two-year, $2.6MM pact he signed with Washington in March 2018. At the time, he was coming off a 2017 campaign in which he set career highs in starts (eight), tackles (52), passes defensed (five), and forced fumbles (one). The Texas A&M product saw an increased role in the Redskins’ secondary that season due to injuries to the club’s other DBs, but his defensive snaps have fallen off considerably since.

Nonetheless, he remains a valuable special teams contributor, and the Redskins have elected to keep him under contract as a result. He has missed the last three games with an ankle injury, but that does not appear to be a major concern going forward.

Everett has compiled four tackles this year but has not registered any other statistics.

Contract Details: Ravens, Redskins, Saints

Some financial details on contracts signed in recent days:

  • Safety Deshazor Everett‘s contract with the Redskins is for two years and $2.6MM with a $250K signing bonus that represents the only guaranteed portion of the deal, according to ESPN.com’s John Keim (on Twitter). Evertt can void the 2019 season if he plays 85% of the defensive snaps or intercepts five passes in 2018. He can also receive up to $125K in roster bonuses each season. He’ll carry cap hits of $1.1MM this season and $1.475MM in 2019.
  • Defensive end Brent Urban, who was re-signed by the Ravens earlier this week, will have a base salary of $1MM with some incentives on his one-year deal, Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun tweets. Urban missed the bulk of the 2017 season thanks to a Lisfranc injury, so he was facing a not-so-great market on Wednesday.
  • George Johnson’s one-year deal with the Saints has a modest base of $915K base with a $483K split, according to Nick Underhill of The Advocate (on Twitter). Johnson will carry a minimum salary benefit cap number of $720K.

Redskins Re-Sign S Deshazor Everett

The Redskins have re-signed safety Deshazor Everett to a multi-year deal, per a team announcement. Everett was scheduled to be a restricted free agent. 

Everett stepped up into a larger role for the Redskins this year amidst injuries in the secondary. Appearing in 14 games (eight starts), Everett set new career highs in tackles (52), passes defensed (5), and forced fumbles (1).

This year, the original round tender is set at $1.907MM. The Redskins feasibly could have applied the tender to Everett to have the first right of refusal, though they would not have received any draft compensation for the former UDFA if he signed elsewhere.

In related moves, running backs Dare Ogunbowale and Kenny Hilliard and tackle Kevin Bowen have been waived.
