This is about the never ending search for the best beer in the world. And that beer is apparently everywhere. Want me to try the beer you like or make? Great, tell me how to get it.

September 2-- Skins make 21 cuts

All of these players were released..

DB Julian Battle
DB Curry Burns
DL Nic Clemons
WR Mike Espy
DB John Eubanks
WR Jimmy Farris
OL Spencer Folau
RB A.J. Harris
WR Steven Harris
OL Jasper Harvey
LB Spencer Havner
DL Cedric Killings
OL Kili Lefotu
DL Vaka Manupuna
LB Robert McCune
DB Christian Morton
TE Buck Ortega
OL Chris Pino
WR Richard Smith
DL Joe Sykes
FB Manuel White

That's the list.. So Nehemiah Broughton beat out last year's 4th round pick Manuel White for the back-up FB job.. Both rookie draft picks at DT Anthony Montgomery and kedric Golston made the team, veteran Cedric Killings was released..7th round pick OL Kili Lefotu who had a seizure during camp due to sleep apnea was released as well.. 6th rounder S Reed Doughty makes it.. Veteran T Spencer Folau did not make the team.. The back-ups on the O-line currently are Jim Molinaro, Tyson Walter, Ike Ndwuke and Mike Puccillo..
5th rounder in '05 Robert McCune was released, the team was happy with Warrick Holdman's work at MLB during the ravens game.. he isn't expected to see much time there.. McCune also missed the game with a hamstring strain.. The team only keeps two TE's releasing former University of Miami TE Buck Ortega..
Veteran DE Nic Clemons was released as well, he's release is a bit of a surprise condiering the injuries to the postion, but it suggests that both Phillip Daniels and Renaldo Wynn will be ready for opening night..
Veteran Julian Battle lost out at CB to newly acquired Mike Rumph and Kenny Wright.. The team kept five corners as they likely will be without Shawn Springs for the opener..

The Redskins will have a 9 man practice squad.. LB Pillippe Gardent does not count toward the maximum 8 as part of an international program allowing teams to keep a player from another country..
WR Mike Espy is a very likely candidate to remain on the practice squad.. OG Jasper Harvey and T Chris Pino are distinct possibilities as well.. The practice squad gets named tomorrow after all the released players clear waivers..
The team has expressed interest in watching the waiver wires for help paryicularly on the offensive line..
