The Redskins will release veteran cornerback Tracy Porter on Wednesday, a source confirmed to CSNWashington.com.
Porter, who was absent from Tuesday’s OTA after missing a flight, appeared in only three games in 2014 after signing a two-year, $6 million free agent contract last offseason. Cutting the oft-injured 28-year-old saves about $2.3 million against the 2015 salary cap.
Earlier in the day, the Redskins also released veteran right guard Chris Chester, saving another $4 million against the cap.
Porter was limited by hamstring injuries as well as a significant shoulder injury last season and played a total of 89 snaps. His days in Washington appeared numbered after the emergence of Bashaud Breeland and the acquisition of Chris Culliver, whose signing created a logjam at corner.
Porter’s release was first reported by The Washington Post.
