The Washington Redskins have released wide receiver Andre Roberts, the Washington Post reports.

Roberts had two years remaining on the four-year, $16 million contract he signed with the Redskins in 2014 after spending the first four years of his career with the Arizona Cardinals.

The former third-round pick struggled in Washington, making just four starts in 16 games his first season with the team and making no starts in nine games last season as he dealt with injuries. Over two years with the Redskins he made 47 catches for 588 yards with two touchdowns.

The Redskins drafted wide receiver Josh Doctson out of TCU in the first round of this year’s draft, and he is expected to be among the team’s top receivers behind Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson.
