With the 2021 NFL draft just three weeks away, the Washington Football Team began clearing some room on their offseason roster by releasing five players on Friday.
One of those released players is tight end Thaddeus Moss. An undrafted free agent out of LSU in 2020, Moss was diagnosed with a broken bone in his foot before the draft. He was released in training camp, but went unclaimed and reverted to Washington’s injured reserve list.
The son of Randy Moss, Thaddeus Moss signed with Washington last offseason due to the team’s lack of depth at the tight end position.
Also released was defensive tackle Caleb Brantley. Brantley had been with Washington since Sept. 2018 but did not see a lot of action. He sat out the 2020 season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Brantley’s release likely has more to do with Washington’s outstanding depth at the position.
WFT also released running backs Javon Leake and Michael Warren, and wide receiver Emanuel Hall.
