Teams around the NFL cut payers to get down to 53-men for their final roster, that included former Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk. Teams can sign players to their practice squad, and the Redskins have no plans to add Seastrunk to theirs.
From the Washington Post:
The Washington Redskins have no immediate plans to sign rookie running back Lache Seastrunk to their practice squad, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.
…Seastrunk went unclaimed on waivers and could’ve signed with Washington. But the team informed his camp “at the last minute” Sunday that they would not be signing him to their practice squad. The decision came as a surprise to Seastrunk and his representatives.
That makes Seastrunk available for the rest of the league if they’re interested. Behind Alfred Morris and Roy Helu Jr, undrafted rookie Silas Redd won the third spot on the depth chart ahead of Seastrunk and others.
The biggest downfall for Seastrunk was his versatility and inexperience in the passing game. Baylor doesn’t use running backs a lot in the pass game and that inexperience made Seastrunk less intriguing as an option.
