The Washington Football Team announced two moves this Thursday morning involving its offensive personnel. The team has released tight end Temarrick Hemingway and signed center Jon Toth.
Hemingway, 28, was selected by the Los Angeles Rams in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He spent a few years with the Rams before signing with the Denver Broncos. After he was waived by the Broncos, Hemingway was claimed by the Carolina Panthers.
It wasn’t until the 2020 season when Washington signed Hemingway to its practice squad. He was promoted to the active roster in October before being placed on injured reserve in December.
This is a tough pill to swallow for Hemingway, who reportedly caught the team’s eye in camp before stumbling in the preseason opener.
“Washington released TE Temarrick Hemingway,” ESPN’s John Keim said. “They were intrigued by him early in camp; real rough preseason opener (also suffered a concussion) and others passed him.”

Since entering the NFL in 2016, Hemingway has only one reception for 10 yards. With final roster cuts due next week, he may have to spend the start of the 2021 season on a team’s practice squad.
As for Washington, the current depth chart at tight end features Logan Thomas, John Bates and Ricky Seals-Jones.
