The Washington Redskins waived offensive tackle Willie Smith and quarterback Jonathan Crompton amid a series of transactions required to reduce the roster from 75 to 53 from 9 p.m. ET Friday.

Crompton was released for the second time this week -- he was re-signed the first time, perhaps a trial balloon to see if he was claimed by another team. Since he was not, the Redskins could plan to bring Crompton back as a member of the practice squad when such transactions are permitted by the NFL beginning Saturday.

Smith, 25, started three games as a rookie in 2011 and has played left tackle and right tackle. He started two games in the 2012 preseason -- Aug. 18 at Chicago and Aug. 29 against the Buccaneers. He's likely to draw interest from teams in need of depth, such as Houston and the New York Jets.

The Redskins also reportedly parted with running back Tristan Davis, cornerback Travon Bellamy, defensive end Doug Worthington, offensive lineman Grant Garner, defensive lineman Delvin Johnson, linebacker Bryan Kehl, offensive lineman Tom Compton and wide receiver Terrence Austin.
