Redskins waive Joey Galloway, add Terrence Austin

The Washington Redskins waived 39-year-old Joey Galloway on

Saturday and signed receiver Terrence Austin from their practice

squad.

Galloway was a starter when the season began, slid to the No. 3

wideout after a few games, then was benched recently after a poorly

run route led to an interception.

He had 12 catches for 173 yards in his first season with the

Redskins, his fifth NFL team since entering the league as a

first-round draft choice in 1995. Galloway has 701 catches for

10,950 yards and 77 touchdowns in his career.

Austin was a seventh-round draft pick this year.

Washington (5-5) hosts Minnesota on Sunday.
