With Clinton Portis and Ladell Betts back from their knee injuries, the Redskins no longer had a need for running back Shaun Alexander.
Thus, the Redskins released alexander on Tuesday so they could sign defensive lineman Ryan Boschetti to their roster.
Alexander never made a mark in Washington. He was signed as insurance once Betts was hurt. And now, Alexander’s final game with the Redskins came in Seattle, where the former NFL MVP made his most lasting impact.
