Redskins Release Veteran DL Terrell McClain

The Redskins have released veteran defensive lineman Terrell McClain after one season according to John Keim of ESPN.

McClain signed a “four-year, $21 million” contract last year which reportedly included guaranteed money this season but Keim reports that the 29-year-old’s $3.25 million base salary was not guaranteed for 2018. He became expendable after the Redskins drafted Alabama’s Da’Ron Payne in the first round Thursday night and added defensive lineman Tim Settle in the fifth.

McClain’s first year in Washington was lackluster at best, with only two sacks in 12 games and the entire Redskins defense was notoriously weak against the run. Originally a 2011 third-round pick by the Carolina Panthers out of South Florida, McClain also made stops in Houston and Dallas before signing with the Redskins. He should have little trouble finding another team as a rotational lineman.
