    Redskins release safety Vincent

    February 22, 2007

    ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -- Veteran safety Troy Vincent was cut Thursday by the Washington Redskins, saving the team about $1.3 million in salary cap space.

    The Redskins signed Vincent six games into the 2006 season after free agent acquisition Adam Archuleta's early struggles, but the five-time Pro Bowl player failed to make much of an impact on the NFC's worst defense.

    Vincent, 35, started three games, missed two with a hamstring injury, then returned as a reserve for the final two. His biggest play came on special teams, when he blocked a field goal in the final minute of a win over Dallas.

    Vincent, who is the president of the NFL Players Association, began 2006 with Buffalo but was placed on injured reserve after hurting his hamstring in the season opener. The Bills later released him, and he signed a three-year, $3.9 million contract with the Redskins in October.

    Vincent has 47 career interceptions, is best known for his years as a standout cornerback with Philadelphia from 1996-2003.
