Redskins release Derrick Dockery

The Washington Redskins released left guard Derrick Dockery today.

The Washington Post reported the news, and Dockery told the newspaper that he was informed of the move today by coach Mike Shanahan.

A third-round draft pick by the Redskins in 2003, Dockery was in his second stint with the club. He had signed a $26.5 million, five-year contract two years ago before Shanahan arrived. The 30-year-old was inactive for much of last season, appearing in only five games with two starts. Prior to 2010, he had gone seven seasons without missing a game.

Next, the Redskins will need to figure out what to do with Jammal Brown, who will be an unrestricted free agent. The club traded for him last year and if the unrestricted free agent isn’t re-signed, he’ll turn into a one-year rental. The Redskins will need to be convinced Brown can remain healthy.
