Adam Gettis, a third-year offensive lineman who played in 13 games last season, was waived by the Redskins on Monday morning as the team continues its march toward getting under the 75-man roster limit by Tuesday afternoon.

Gettis, taken in the fifth round out of Iowa in 2012, played a total of 17 snaps at left guard last season but was a staple on special teams. His highlight was a five-yard return on a short kickoff in the Redskins’ loss to the New York Giants on Dec. 1.

“It’s been real, it’s been fun, it’s been real fun,” Gettis posted on his Twitter account Monday morning. “On to the next! God and hard work will always get you through.”

The Redskins also waived cornerback Bryan Shepherd, who went undrafted out of North Dakota State in May.

Washington cut nine players on Sunday, including outside linebacker Rob Jackson, a veteran entering his seventh season. It entered Saturday’s preseason game against Baltimore with 89 players on its active roster.
