The Washington Redskins released linebacker Rob Jackson and waived eight players: fullback Stephen Campbell, wide receivers Cody Hoffman and Rashad Lawrence, linebackers Jeremy Kimbrough and Adrian Robinson, safety Ross Maddison and defensive ends Jake McDonough and Jeremy Towns.

Jackson, a six-year veteran who appeared in 12 games with one start last season, had been listed as the second-team left outside linebacker behind Ryan Kerrigan. He entered the league with the Redskins in 2008 and has 71 career tackles and 7.5 sacks.

Campbell had been listed as starter Darrel Young's backup and the only other true fullback on the roster.

All of the Redskins' eight draft picks this year survived the first wave of roster cuts.
