Nose tackle Maake Kemoeatu, running backs Chad Simpson and Andre Brown, receiver Roydell Williams and punter Sam Paulescu were also released.

The 33-year-old Rabach said in a text message Thursday that the Redskins told him they were "going younger and had enough depth" at offensive line.

The 38-year-old Daniels announced his news via Twitter, saying: "Sad news guys. I just got released."

Players reported Thursday for physicals and meetings. The first practice is scheduled for Friday.
