Zach Brown to reportedly be released by Washington

The Washington Redskins plan to release linebacker Zach Brown, reports Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

What It Means:

Washington tried trading Brown and received interest from multiple teams, per Pelissero, but was unable to complete a deal. They will clear $5.75 million off the cap with the move. Brown was Pro Football Focus' 3rd-best inside linebacker out of 61 qualifiers in 2018. He will be 30 at the end of October.

Brown recorded 85 tackles (60 solo) with 1 sack, 1 pass deflection, and 2 forced fumbles last season.
