The linebacker position is one of the more crowded spots on the Washington Football Team. That crowd decreased by one on Monday, though.
Josh Harvey-Clemons has opted out of the 2020 season, the team announced. The 26-year-old was set to enter his fourth year with the franchise and figured to compete for a depth spot for Ron Rivera and Jack Del Rio.
He is the second player on the Burgundy and Gold to make that choice this offseason. Lineman Caleb Brantley opted out last week, too.
A seventh-round draft pick in 2017, Harvey-Clemons has appeared in 35 regular season contests for Washington. He's mostly been a special teamer and reserve option since coming out of Louisville and wasn't a lock by any means to make the 2020 roster.
The Harvey-Clemons news wasn't the only personnel move that came down on Monday.
The organization also waived three guys — defensive end Cameron Malveaux, defensive back Maurice Smith and tight end Caleb Wilson — and released running back Josh Ferguson.
