Redskins Release Lott

The Redskins waived safety Andre Lott on Saturday after he agreed to an injury settlement with the team.

Lott had suffered a hairline tibia fracture on the last day of the June 17-19 mini-camp but was expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

With the signing of veteran safety Omar Stoutmire on July 29 and the additions of defensive backs Tony Dixon and Pierson Prioleau during the 2005 offseason, the Redskins appear to have plenty of depth at the safety position. It would have been an uphill climb for Lott to earn a roster spot during training camp.

Lott, a fourth-year pro out of Tennessee, is coming off of an injury-plagued 2004 season. He played in just four games with three starts. Early in the season, he was inactive for three games due to a hamstring injury.

Then Lott suffered a left pectoral tear in the Week 8 game against Green Bay and was sidelined for the remainder of the season.

The Redskins selected Lott in the fifth round (159th overall) of the 2002 NFL Draft.
