Punter Hunter Smith released

Per reports, it appears that the Redskins have released veteran punter Hunter Smith today, and plan to replace him with the newly signed Sam Paulescu.

As many will no doubt remember, Smith was not able to bring down a high snap during the botched field goal attempt in the final seconds of the game last Sunday. He has taken full responsibility for the incident, but that gaffe appears to have cost him his job.

Paulescu played in one game for the Redskins in 2009, but was waived after that game. He will get a second chance at the job, and will also reportedly handle placeholding duties.
