The Washington Redskins announced on Tuesday that they cut defensive lineman Adam Carriker and punter Sav Rocca.

Carriker carried a $6.5 million cap hit heading into the 2014 season and was viewed as a likely target for cost-cutting in Washington. He has sat out due to injuries since the second week of the 2012 season.

Sav Rocca signed a two-year deal with the team in 2013 and appeared in all 16 games for Washington, but tied a career low of 42.0 yards per punt on 84 attempts.

Carriker told ESPN's John Keim last month that he hoped to remain with the organization.
