The Redskins will not tender restricted free agent WR/KR Brandon Banks a contract, making him an unrestricted free agent.
Per beat writer Rich Campbell, Banks is "not expected to return." The pint-sized returner narrowly made the roster last summer, and was stripped of return duties down the stretch. Banks has game-breaking potential on special teams, but will have a rough go of it in free agency. He doesn't help at all on offense.
