WASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington Redskins have released center Will Montgomery after he failed a physical and signed free agent kicker Jake Rogers.

The Redskins on Friday also announced the signings of defensive lineman Jason Hatcher and linebacker Darryl Sharpton. Both agreed to terms Thursday.

Montgomery started every game over the last three seasons, but the Redskins allowed 43 sacks last year and were looking to upgrade the offensive line. His departure allows Kory Lichtensteiger to move to from left guard to center. Washington also signed free agent guard Shawn Lauvao this week.

Rogers has yet to kick in an NFL game after leaving the University of Cincinnati as the school’s all-time leading scorer. He’s been signed by four NFL teams, including the New York Giants, who waived him last spring.
