Today is cut day in the NFL, the day teams have to be down to 53 players for the regular season.

According to a report by The Washington Times, USD Alum Tom Compton, the team's sixth round draft pick, has been informed that he will be trimmed from the roster.

Compton had seen action at offensive tackle during the pre-season, and was even singled out by SBNation.com for his play in Washington's game with Tampa Bay Wednesday night:

Compton showed excellent feet in pass pro, and did not allow his man to cross his face to generate pressure (this to me was significant). In the run game Compton consistently set the edge on the outside zone, and blew his man off the ball in inside running plays.

No word yet on whether Compton will be offered a spot on the practice squad or will be released outright.
