Golston started 13 games as a rookie. Last year, Montgomery started 15 contests, but defensive coordinator Greg Blache said Golston played well enough in the playoff loss to Seattle that he likely would have started the next week in Dallas.
Montgomery missed time this camp with a broken hand, and Golston has started the first four preseason games. But Montgomery is listed ahead of Golston on the depth chart.
“It has been a great rotation. Whichever guy you pick, the other guy is right there with that rotation,” Zorn said. “It will be significant to the guy, but it won’t be that significant to us because we’ve got three or four pretty good guys in there.”
The Redskins released former Maryland tight end Jason Goode with an injury settlement Tuesday. Goode had three catches for 65 yards, including a 33-yard touchdown reception against the Jets.
Goode has not practiced since that game because of turf toe and would have had trouble cracking the 53-man roster with veterans Chris Cooley and Todd Yoder and second-round pick Fred Davis in front of him.
Linebacker Danny Verdun-Wheeler, whom the team cut early in camp, was signed to replace Goode on the roster.
