Former Michigan tailback Mike Shaw released on first day of Redskins' rookie minicamp
Former Michigan tailback Mike Shaw has been released by the Washington Redskins, according to a tweet posted by the team Friday afternoon.
Shaw rushed 190 times for 1,001 yards and 14 touchdowns in his Michigan career. He was most productive as a junior, when he posted 75 carries for 402 yards and nine touchdowns.
His usage was scaled back last season, when Fitz Toussaint emerged as the featured back and Vincent Smith the primary alternate.
Former Michigan tight end Steve Watson and offensive tackle Mark Huyge are scheduled to compete in Washington's three-day rookie minicamp. They have not signed deals.
