Frost Cut

From Jason: Punter Derrick Frost was cut today, a source said. Frost had better numbers in exhibition games and more experience but the team decided to keep rookie Durant Brooks. The Redskins informed Frost of their decision within the last 24 hours. After Frost had an inconsistent 2007 season, the Redskins used one of their sixth-round picks last April on Brooks, who has a strong leg and can excel at hang time. But Frost had delivered more booming kicks during exhibition games and is a proven holder for kick Shaun Suisham. Frost knew he was in trouble when the team offered him only a one-year veteran minimum contract in the offseason and never upped their offer.
The NFL Network first reported that Frost was cut. The network also reported that Todd Wade and Marcus Mason have been cut, but we have been unable to confirm that yet.

Did somebody say "Cut?"

Posted by: Murray the Moyle | August 30, 2008 2:57 PM | Report abuse

Your late.. We already know Frost was cut, everyone has listed that foe two hours. Who else ?

Posted by: Anonymous | August 30, 2008 2:57 PM | Report abuse

c'mon you got to at least know who's been cut already. It's only an hour before deadline

In all fairness, I presume JlaCa had to confirm it before he could post it.

Jason, Call Adam to confirm...

Sounds like the old rules of the Washington Post prevail:

News items have to have confirmation/multiple confirmed sources.

Posted by: Anonymous | August 30, 2008 2:59 PM | Report abuse

Can't confirm? where's your mole at? this should be called the redskins outsider than insider

Posted by: Anonymous | August 30, 2008 2:59 PM | Report abuse

This just in. I have just confirmed that the Redskins will play 16 games this season!!! Sorry for the delay but had to confirm first, I am so excited my sexy glasses are fogging up. That is why it is so hard for me to break news with out spelling errors.

On the Oline, we have supposedly cut Wade. If Heyer starts at RT, we have Fabini as an experienced backup at either G or T. Can Jansen be a legitimate backup at C? Or do we need to keep Geisinger?

Posted by: frediefritz | August 30, 2008 3:03 PM | Report abuse

If it was Anti Gibbs or Snyder news, he would be the first to post... Don't forget his article last year about the OFF Line. His "NFL Sources" said Stephon Heyer would never make it in the NFL...

Jasno always has "sources" when it is time to trash the team. But comes dead last for real news. Just like the draft when every one else had the terms of the Skins trade except him.

Posted by: 1st and Goal | August 30, 2008 3:06 PM | Report abuse

that's right, that heyer would not make most team yet alone start in this league?

Posted by: Anonymous | August 30, 2008 3:07 PM | Report abuse

I am sure he could confirm with his "unnammed NFL sources" if he had some trash on the Skins.

Posted by: johnc | August 30, 2008 3:09 PM | Report abuse

I think most of us here could run this blog and still have a better idea of what the skins are doing with up to date news other than a settlement, red sox, what song i'm listening to, hockey, and any non skins new! no wonder why the skins don't like working with you. That message was clear when they fired his mole media relation guy

Can Jansen long snap??? You don't need to back peddle and recover againt inside technique to long snap.

Posted by: SkinsfaninManila | August 30, 2008 3:11 PM | Report abuse

Breaking news from the insider.. The skins will play in the Hall of fame game and open the season vs the Giants.... I perdict they will go 3-2 in the pre-season.

Posted by: johnc | August 30, 2008 3:12 PM | Report abuse

Keeping 9 Ol should be enough as most of them are very flexible to move in and out. like fabini G or T, Heyer play RT and LT, jansen is a pure T, and keeping Crummey or geisinger for ceter or guard

Posted by: Anonymous | August 30, 2008 3:16 PM | Report abuse

I though Mason did good at RB. Anyone know why he would be cut?

Posted by: zourneidentity | August 30, 2008 3:17 PM | Report abuse

and chad rhinehart can play guard and a little T

Posted by: Anonymous | August 30, 2008 3:18 PM | Report abuse

I don't know what everyone is so upset about? I'll post the cuts @ about 5 pm. I need to confirm my "sources." I'm also very busy trying to find something to bash sunder and cerrato about.

Posted by: the redskins insider | August 30, 2008 3:20 PM | Report abuse

I like Mason. I think it would be better to keep him and cut the rock. As most teams would have to pay more for rock for his service because he's a veteran and might go unsigned. As oppose to Mason get a rookie deal and having a lot of upside. He like ryan grant of the packers

Posted by: Anonymous | August 30, 2008 3:18 PM

Let's keep him at G for now. He has a great 360-spin, but that was caused by DE's running around him. He is still a work-in-progress at T.

Posted by: frediefritz | August 30, 2008 3:21 PM | Report abuse

and I'm short. Just confirmed with my sources!

Seems someone is a little bitter that they were wrong

Some of you people are complete jerks. If the guy has to verify stuff before posting that a good thing. That is what is worng today, the country and the world runs their collective mouths long before sh*t is true.

Leave Jason along. He is doing his job.

HTTR.

"As oppose to Mason get a rookie deal and having a lot of upside. He like ryan grant of the packers"

What is Marcus Masons upside? The only thing he has to offer is running the ball. He is not that good in other facets of the game that a RB needs.

I have to disagree with Jason on one thing. How did Frost put up better numbers than Brooks? He may have averaged three yards per punt more in terms of distance but the return yardage given up when Frost is kicking was horrendous (17.9 compared to 9.2 for Brooks). Also, Frost had a few more punts than Brooks and still had less punts inside the 20. I say it was more of a wash that Jason reported, and I'd have made the same decision as the front office/Zorn.

Posted by: BMac | August 30, 2008 6:34 PM | Report abuse

well, Danny boy and Vinny continue to display their "amateur hour" NFL franchise management style. More wasted draft picks on non productive receivers, a #1 QB that is slow to make decisions in the pocket, an aging offensive line, it goes on and on. Another lost season for the Redskins. By October, poor Jim Zorn will be asking himself why the *ell did he ever take the head coaching job. Danny boy will be on the phone trying to get Spurrier back. Maybe Usher can be the long snapper after the pregame concert.

I am a little weary of reading the attacks on Jason on this blog. These little words, so there is no misunderstanding, are coming from a career newspaperman who, if I understand anything, understand that Jason has one of the toughest beats on his newspaper. Everyone who remotely follows the Redskins has an opinion on them, on how they should and should not be covered. Having read Jason from afar for a while now, I find him to be a first-rate professional who does not carry a brief for anyone, including the rabid fans who attack him or the Redskin management. Let the man do his job, please. And be thankful, for once, that those of us who follow this team have really solid writers and editors acting as our eyes and ears. If his critics did their jobs half as well as Jason does his, this would be a better society. My advice to them is: Get a life!

Ehh, Frost is too inconsistent and that Brooks kid is pretty good. No worries there at all.

As far as the rest...well Vinny sucks and we all know he only has a job because he's best buddies with the owner. He would never be a GM on any other team in the NFL, that is very telling in itself.

The only person people should be mad at is Snyder. Everyone else is what they are. The owner calls ALL of the shots on this team and he has no clue....still.
