In one of the weirdest moves of the preseason, the Washington Redskins traded a conditional draft pick for linebacker Hall Davis on Monday and then released him after one practice Tuesday. Davis was a seventh-round pick for the St. Louis Rams.

Safety Lendy Holmes, offensive lineman Edwin Williams and long snapper James Dearth were the other cuts as the Redskins got down to 75 players on the roster. Also some interesting things are being said about wide receiver Malcolm Kelly's hamstring injury that landed him on injured reserve Tuesday.

More on that in the coming days.
