Redskins release Carter, Dockery

- Associated Press - Tuesday, March 1, 2011

WASHINGTON | The Washington Redskins have released linebacker Andre Carter and guard Derrick Dockery.

Neither of Tuesday's moves was a surprise. Carter was a poor fit for the team's 3-4 defense, and Dockery had become a high-priced backup who was due $3.8 million in salary in 2011.

Carter had 11 sacks in 2009 playing defensive end in the 4-3, but he struggled when moved to linebacker last season in the 3-4. He started only five games and had 2½ sacks.

Dockery hadn't missed a game in his eight-year career before he was made inactive in Week 5, having lost his starting job to Kory Lichtensteiger. Dockery played in only one more game the rest of the season.
