Redskins Waive Safety Kyshoen Jarrett


Kyshoen Jarrett -- a 2015 sixth-round pick for the Redskins -- was waived on Monday the team announced. Jarrett totaled 63 tackles during his rookie season in Washington.

The Washington Redskins on Monday announced that safety Kyshoen Jarrett was waived with a failed physical designation.

Jarrett, a 2015 sixth-round pick for the Redskins, suffered a shoulder injury that resulted in a nerve damage issue in Washington's regular season finale victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Jan. 3 after a collision with Dallas Cowboys running back Darren McFadden.

In 16 regular season games during his rookie season, Jarrett finished sixth on the Redskins in tackles with 63 while also recording two passes defensed and a fumble forced on 602 defensive snaps.

Jarrett would also record six starts during the year with his first career appearance in the starting lineup coming in the Redskins' 23-20 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4 at FedExField.

He also logged 102 special teams snaps.

Jarrett had reportedly recently seen specialists in Denver and Minnesota with hopes of finding a way to recover from the injury.

With the Redskins heading to the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center later this week for 2016 training camp in Richmond, Va., the roster now includes safeties Will Blackmon, David Bruton Jr., Su'a Cravens, Deshazor Everett, Duke Ihenacho and Geno Matias-Smith.

The roster is also currently at 88 players after Jarrett's release. The maximum number of players allowed on the roster at this time of year is, of course, 90.
