Commanders cut reinstated DE Shaka Toney

The Washington Commanders cut defensive end Shaka Toney on Monday, days after he was reinstated by the NFL following a one-year gambling suspension.

Washington drafted Toney in the seventh round in 2021 and he appeared in 26 games (one start), registering 1.5 sacks and 16 tackles from 2021-22.

The NFL suspended Toney on April 21, 2023, for violating the league’s policy on gambling. Of the five players who were reinstated by the league last week, he had been the only one still on a roster.

Toney, 26, became expendable this offseason with the Commanders signing defensive ends Dorance Armstrong, Clelin Ferrell and Dante Fowler Jr. in free agency and also re-signing Efe Obada. Also on the DE depth chart are KJ Henry, Jalen Harris and Andre Jones Jr.
