    Linebacker Rob Jackson (50) was the most notable of the Redskins' first round of cuts.

    All NFL teams are required to cut their preseason rosters to 75 players by 4 p.m. ET Tuesday, but the Redskins took care of theirs much earlier, announcing the 15 players that have been waived or released.

    Below are the 15 aforementioned players:

    1. FB Stephen Campbell
    2. WR Cody Hoffman
    3. LB Jeremy Kimbrough
    4. WR Rashad Lawrence
    5. S Ross Madison
    6. DE Jake McDonough
    7. LB Adrian Robinson
    8. DE Jeremy Towns
    9. LB Rob Jackson
    10. G Adam Gettis
    11. CB Bryan Shepherd
    12. WR Rashad Ross
    13. TE Matt Veldman
    14. G/C Mike McGlynn
    15. TE Mike Caussin (Reserve/Injured List)

    Of the cuts, Jackson is the most notable. The veteran and 2008 draft pick was bumped by a younger group of outside linebackers.

    The Redskins have until Saturday afternoon to cut the remaining 22 players to form their 53-man roster for the regular season.
