Redskins Cut Wynn to Make Room for Punter

Renaldo Wynn's second stint with the Redskins didn't last nearly as long as his first. Signed as a free agent last March, Wynn was released by the team today to make room for punter Glenn Pakulak on the 53-man roster.

Pakulak will punt in place of injured Hunter Smith on Sunday against the Panthers. Smith injured his groin last week against Tampa Bay. Pakulak, a 29-year-old journeyman who's with his ninth NFL team, will also serve as holder on field goals and extra-point attempts.

Wynn, in his 13th season, struggled to find a place on the roster. With plenty of talented and younger defensive linemen ahead of him on the depth chart, Wynn has not been active for any of the first four games.

Wynn, 35, previously played for Washington from 2002-06, a regular starter for the first four years. The Redskins released him and he spent a season in New Orleans and another with the New York Giants before the Redskins decided to give him a shot in the spring.

The team isn't expected to make a corresponding move to fill the empty spot on the practice squad until after Sunday's game at Carolina.

1st to say I am a bit surprised by this, although there is a fair amount of depth there.

Isn't RI nation supposed to be camped out watching college ball and scouting next year's #1 draft picks while BOGO?

I think they're unlikely to keep the backup punter once Hunter is healthy. Maybe there's another lineman out there. Doubt it though.

Funny thing about the special teams entry - one time one person makes a mistake then the next time, another person makes a mistake. In other words, NO ONE from the top down to the last person on the team are NOT ON THE SAME PAGE. The problem isn't talent, the problem is teamwork and it comes down from the top, blah, blah, blah - we all know the routine now.

Exactly what the team needs, LESS leadership in the locker room. After losing Springs,Thrash, Washington etc...good to get rid of another mature influence.

No doubt his game has atrophied, he's been kept as Daniels' insurance, but nonetheless, this team lacks for leadsership, and it shows. No one's liable to snatch him, so he can be resigned.

Good to keep all 15 backs they have,

"The games are the only reason any of us are fans. That's where memories of games are created and connections with players are made. The games are the best part and the part that matters most."

-Cracker182

Wow. Clearly Cracker182 has not been watching games this season. Games are the best part? Of what, exactly? Certainly not the sport of football. Redskins games have been excruciating to watch. Awful, awful displays on offense. Mediocre at best on defense, sometimes. Other times, vomitous. Frankly I consider fans booing and attempting to wear paper bags at home a collective haterade dump on the front office for winning the NFL Dysfunction Bowl.

The most entertaining part of the season so far has been waiting for media, fan, and franchise reaction to each game during the week. And THAT drama is only going to continue: Get booed at home for scoring 9 points against one of the worst teams in the league! Lose to a team that hasn't won since 2007! Secretly bring in an outside bingo-calling consultant without a clear (public) plan - and watch as this undermines your coach! Worn out primadonna running back challenged by his giant lead blocker to a locker room fight! Media shredding the franchise! Franchise-owned message board shredding the franchise!

Grab a cold one, sit back, and watch it burn. That's the only real entertainment we're going to get this year.

i would guess the majority of analysts and fans had the Skins at

3-1

we're 2-2

1 game off and people are going ballistic like their is an asteroid screaming towards earth.

how about CHILL OUT and BELIEVE until we are mathematically eliminated, like reasonable adults. This roster, basically, is capable of winning 5 straight to go 10-6, or be 6-2 over an 8 game stretch.

what is incessant complaining going to accomplish??

I like every player on the roster, they are Redskins. I have not met any of them personally. I'm not going to judge a man who I've never met, unless I have credible information about that person with which I am morally opposed to.

Judging an athletes by what they say on a radio show is about as fair as judging a radio show host by what he does on the football field.

Is seriously boneheaded. Hunter was a huge upgrade for marginal salary increase. Injuries happen. Groin pull for a punter, not that odd. You are majorly reaching. And don't you love defense/running 9-7 victories? Well punting is huge for a team that wins like that...

Frost wasn't the best punter but he was a decent football player, like Suisham imagine if we had some new young kicker and he had to go in and punt out of the endzone.

2 of Cambell's picks could be reasonably attributed to the hunPunt groin injury,

4th and 4 1st qu, we go for it, hunters, hurt. Later, 3rd and long might as well go deep to Kelly, hunter's hurt.

What else can anybody expect of a punter? Consider the times that Smith has punted in 8 games since the start of preseason because the offense has failed and the resulting injury was due. I put his groin injury on the stinking offense. Pakulak is going to get "groined" too as he will be called time and again to punt the ball as the offense goes 3 and out, 3 and out, 3 and out, 3 and out, 3and out.......

Is he is so beneficial to the team in practice and the color coordinated warm up suit on Sundays that losing his "leadership" just can't be overcome by guys named oh I don't know lets say Fletcher, Griffin, Daniels, and Carter? Was he ever gonna see the field absent 3 guys going on IR in front of him?

how about punting can we expect punting out of the punter, Frost executed a fake and made TD saving tackles, Brooks was horrible and a waste, Suisham PUNTED out of the end zone and landed one inside the 20 and he's the kicker that 65% of this blogs readers would have cut for some guy that was 1 for 1 last year.

A road win to go 3-2 could be big, a loss would not end the season, peaking in nov/dec and jan/feb would be a reasonable goal in season management. last year we peaked early and tailed off, where did that get us.

play calling has been much more agressive this year. 2-0 at home and 0-2 on the road.

win your home games and split on the road is a reasonable goal. that put s you at 12-4, giving you a 2 loss margin to make 10-6.

If you start with this mindset, it can prevent pre-mature total freak out, bail out on the team, fire the kicker, fire drill fanaticism.

Posted by: pabrian2003 | October 10, 2009 6:06 PM | Report abuse

I'll take the bait. I think signing Hunter Smith was quite prescient. Its almost like Vinny knew the offense would suck and we would need a top tier punter AND HOLDER for Suisham to rely upon.

The kickers have been two of the brightest spots all year. They execute the basic plays they are supposed to execute week after week. Sellers and his under performing bone headed brothers should read and follow a page out of their book.

It could end up well...or...it could end up bad. we'll see...

However....I have no faith in the offense...Defense has played very well..even tho not statistically..

The D has given up 16 (ok 23 was the final but on a FR TD), 7, 19, and 13. thats a good D.

daniels should back-up the starting defensive tackles he is no longer quick enough to play DE. start alexander who is much younger at daniels old spot move orapko to LDE ONLY amd let jarmon come in on passing downs for alexander,bring up jackson from practice squad(another DE) they need more young people on the edges with speed that can get to the qb. there is enough veteran leadership on the defense.. they need PLAY-MAKERS. If dixon was doing well during the pre-season at DT sign him off the eagles practice squad especially if montgomery goes to the IR.

we're 2-2

1 game off and people are going ballistic like their is an asteroid screaming towards earth.

how about CHILL OUT and BELIEVE until we are mathematically eliminated, like reasonable adults. This roster, basically, is capable of winning 5 straight to go 10-6, or be 6-2 over an 8 game stretch.

what is incessant complaining going to accomplish??

I like every player on the roster, they are Redskins. I have not met any of them personally. I'm not going to judge a man who I've never met, unless I have credible information about that person with which I am morally opposed to.

I did not read Sally Jenkins column, but I got a good synopsis of it from the Radio show the Fan.

It is a nice little analogy, but it is trash. Lavar Arrington, whom I am a huge fan of has been echoing the same type of garbage about Snyder.

Toxic management she says and Lavar says that Snyder sabotages everything that comes into Redskin Park.

And they both believe that this Team is doomed as long as Snyder is the Owner.

Well, I for one do not believe that. I also am a huge Dan Synder fan and Dan Synder will win a Super Bowl with these Washington Redskins.

All of you like Sally Jenkins and my boy Lavar that believe that the Redskins predicament is solely because of Synder are terribly just wrong.

Synder, I agree, has made some egregious mistakes, but a successful man like him whom earned his status and was not born with it will not fail as the Owner of this franchise.

Danny Synder is driven to succeed and he will succeed with these Washington Redskins.

I expect this Team to beat Carolina tomorrow, but if they don't and the Offense stinks up the joint, Danny Synder will be making some changes and rightfully, HE SHOULD.

See, that's where you made your mistake. In business, perhaps but with Redskins he is driven to be the puppet master and to be in control of the major moves & decisions. Unfortunately, he lacks the football acumen to succeed after 10 years of trying and he is still repeating the same mistakes so he is not learning and he is doomed to continue to fail until he stops this foolishness & brings in someone who knows what they are doing into the process.

I don't see a win for the Redskins tomorrow. The Redskins are borderline dysfunctional in the locker room, first half Soup equals first half sucks, and they haven't done a good job of stopping the run this season while Carolina has two quality running backs that burned Washington in the past. I don't see the team doing much this year but the shenanigans going on off the field are highly entertaining. The question on my mind is, "Does Snyder fire Zorn after the game or does he still wait until the bye week?"

But, NOOOOOOO. We have "The Danny" and "My Cousin Vinnie" and now, my life is over and I'm going to become a Dallas Fan!

I'm serious here. I'm gonna DO IT. Just watch! You'll all be sorry when I'm all decked out in my Silver and Blue and clapping along with Jerry Jones at the end of games!

Then, I will no longer be a Redskins fan and frequent these boards, ripping the team for whatever they DO or DONT do all season long.

I will no longer be relegated to booing their victories along with their losses.

I will no longer have to put down Portis or whoever he butts heads with, because, it's pretty confusing bashing both sides of every argument, anyway.

I'm gonna be a Dallas fan, and stop crying about the Redskins like part of some black hole clique of discontent and cynicism.

You'll all be sorry, then.

Will_Ga,

You would be correct. You see that is one of the things I am still betting on, is that Snyder will finally realize that Vinny is not his guy. This organization made a humongous mistake by making Charley Casserly the GM instead of Bobby Mitchell. We have not recovered from that debaucle yet.

Danny does not have to call on Bobby at this point, but successful people are successful most often because they surround themselves with competent successful people. Danny will realize that Vinny has to go along with Zorn if this last move with Sherman does not pan out.

The Skins will win tomorrow if I read correctly that Blauche has made the right changes with his defense.

This Reskins Defense playing the right way should destroy most offenses in this League.

Blauche did something last week and if it inspires the Defense like it should they can shut Carolina out.

I hope I'm wrong, but I can easily see Carolina putting up 33-38 points with the skins not breaking 20.

If my prediction is correct, the game(s) won't matter, all attention will be on when JZ gets the Axe and who's taking over. Then it'll be JC and CP's turn to make a exit as well after the season. I'd like to see them turn it around but I'm sure any turn around less than the playoffs will give a fire sale at end of year.

"I don't see a win for the Redskins tomorrow."

A poorly played game that results in a lucky win would be worst than a well played all around team effort that resulted in a loss.

The thing to look for is any sign that there's a unified effort coming from all 3 sides of the ball--special teams, offense, defense.

The last thing to look for is some sign that Sherm Lewis has tapped Jim Zorn's shoulder, and there's some subtle shifts (bunch formations, more crossing routes, more pick plays, more counter action, Betts used more) to the offensive play calling.

Anything other than that would indicate that the chant, "Deadskins Suck!," would be the proper anthem of the day.

Posted by: MistaMoe | October 10, 2009 11:58 PM | Report abuse

What I see coming from tomorrows game is a clear indication one way or the other.

We will know tomorrow, whether JZ weathers the Storm and whether the Defense is gonna be playing the way everyone thought.

It will be crystal clear and I think that that the Redskins will come out on top.

However, if they do not, if is also clear to me that Snyder will make more immediate major changes.

Snyder will not settle for anything less than success.

A lot of yawl' don't like Synder and he ain't got it right yet, but I'm uh' tellin' ya', that boy is a winna'.

Seems to me that if Sherm the Worm has had any impact at all in his three days on site, then we're in deeper coaching kim chee than I thought.
I'm hoping to see that the defense continues to gel -- it's getting close to being very good again, but we need to prove it against someone decent.
I'd like to see the offense click. But the light bulbs seem very dim so far.
If we fall behind early, I'd be concerned about total collapse. Maybe JZ jogs into the tunnel at halftime, never to be seen again.

Don't understand the bit about Casserly. He was a good GM and made some very good trades, draft picks and FA signings. Basically was fired from drafting Mario Williams instead of Reggie Bush or Vince Young. How does that look in hindsight? Even Synder admitted that firing Casserly was a mistake.

According to Florio, this is common. Wynn was cut today and more than likely will be resigned on Monday with the punter being cut and put back on the practice sqaud, the reason why they left the practice spot open. Because he was cut on Saturday, he still receives a paycheck for the week.

Wynn was the safest person to cut because he is one of the oldest and teams are unlikely to covet him.

What I think they are doing is preparing to fire Zorn after Sherman has a grip of this team and replace him. They won't have to change the offense because the west coast is already established. That makes it a smooth transition when the moment is right. Probably after a another big loss.

Per PFT
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on October 11, 2009 7:50 AM ET
This Sunday marks the first time that new Washington offensive consultant Sherm Lewis will be paid to use his "extra set of eyes" to watch the Redskins play.

According to Fox's John Czarnecki, though, Redskins owner Dan Snyder already had another hire in mind during the season.

Czarnecki writes that "word has it" Snyder approached Mike Shanahan in the offseason to be his head coach and has already made another attempt during the season.

He was reportedly rebuffed both times.

Wow.

Snyder and the Redskins will eventually deny the report, because they don't have any other choice.  But the news will likely reach coach Jim Zorn's ears, just like the reports from the Washington Post that Zorn would have been fired last season if the Redskins had lost to the Eagles in Week Sixteen.

Zorn has to feel that he is coaching on borrowed time, and it's fair to wonder how that effects the team he's leading.

Every coach in the league is "coaching on borrowed time." Even Mike Shanahan got fired in Denver.

So how does this affect the team? Probably about the same as a hard-hitting column by Sally Jenkins. Or a stinging criticism of the front office by Brownwood.

"Zorn has to feel that he is coaching on borrowed time, and it's fair to wonder how that effects the team he's leading."

Modern footballers ain't stupid.

They don't read contracts, but they do read into the intentions of their leadership.

Most have played in someother trifling situation where they know the coach is headed out the door or is a suck up lackey playing for time.

Or: their agents are arm-chair employee relations psychologists and have explained to them that because the FO choose Zorn over Grilliams, they should see the Medium Man for what he is--a Do-Boy.

We posted the other day the big hiring mistake was not giving Grilliams--a rude man--the head coach job.

The FO feared Grilliams not realizing the players needed a coach they both respected and feared.

The FO didn't want a rude presence in '08 that would ask, "Why are we drafting three ballcatchers when all we block is the path to the food line?"

Right now, we're the only team blocking the path to the bottom of the NFC East.

This would kill the season and make the nationwide laughter about the team go up several notches.

Then: who would take the job to coach the team?

The best thing would be to promote Jerry Gray, name Lewis or some other soul offensive coordinator, and let Zorn manage the entire team.

He is the head coach: narrow his job to just doing that.

Narrowing Zorn's focus--with Joe Bugel standing next to him as team manager--would keep a whiff of respectibility in the air.

The very first debaucle that Casserly did was to allow the breakup of the Posse. Gibbs might have had a hand in it, but the Posse was still the best 3-receiver set in the League, even though old and a step slow as claimed.

You see being a step slow really don't mean crap, iffin' you are still the best tandem in the League.

Casserly just looked at the individual instead of looking at the whole and it was stupid to break up the Posse at that time.

How in the hell could one guy from Michigan come and replace the production of the Posse. Casserly looking at the individual picture instead of the whole.
