The Washington Redskins released linebacker Alfred Fincher and four others, knocking the roster down to 75 players before the final cuts next week force them down to 53. Fincher was a special teamer last year who saw limited action on defense. He wasn't a standout and the 'Skins just drafted both Cody Glenn and Robert Henson.

He ranks second on the franchise all-time rushing list and rushing attempts list. There is no question Portis is second only to John Riggins amongst the backs the Redskins have had in their franchise history. However, coming into the 2009 season Portis has plenty to accomplish.
