Report: Washington cuts WR Trey Quinn, room for Cam Sims?

Insider

Multiple reports show that Washington Football cut wide receiver Trey Quinn. 

That shouldn't be earth shattering news, as Quinn was selected in the seventh round of 2017 NFL Draft and has 35 catches in two seasons. His inability to stay healthy has cost him real opportunity, and this season, with Ron Rivera and new coaches in charge, the team decided to move on.

What is interesting, however, is that Quinn's release might solidify roster projections for the wide receiver group. 

Terry McLaurin, Steve Sims, Dontrelle Inman and Antonio Gandy Golden all are locks for the 53. Undrafted rookie Isaiah Wright seems to have the fifth spot reserved, and without Quinn around, Cam Sims looks to be the sixth wideout. 

Sims is another undrafted guy, he played college ball at Alabama, and he has only two catches in two NFL seasons. He's flashed plenty of big-play potential in August, but never when the games matter. Still, he has better size than Quinn and got audible praise from special teams coach Nate Kazcor multiple times this training camp. 

Want to hear something wild? If these projections hold, four of Washington's six wide receivers are undrafted players. Both Sims, Inman and Wright. That's crazy.
