WASHINGTON -- The Washington Redskins Tuesday obtained tight end Gregg McCrary and wide receiver John Floyd, both for future undisclosed draft choices, in separate trades with the San Diego Chargers, the Redskins announced.
To make room on the roster, the Redskins released veteran punter-quarterback Mike Kirkland, who they had signed in the off-season as a free agent, and wide receiver Kenny Harrison, a four-year veteran.
McCrary, a 6-2, 235-pounder, is a veteran of five NFL seasons, catching 19 passes for 215 yards and four touchdowns. A fifth-round Atlanta draft pick in 1975, McCrary missed the 1976 season with a thigh injury.
McCrary, who will be in uniform for Sunday's game with New England, was traded to the Redskins in 1978, and played in six games before being released. San Diego then picked him up and he played for the Chargers in 38 games, starting 11 times last year.
Floyd, a 6-1, 195-pouunder, played two seasons for the Chargers, who drafted him in the fourth round in 1979. He played in 23 gamaes, caught 11 passes for 183 yards and two gouchdowns. He is also expected to be in uniform Sunday.
Earlier Tuesday, the Redskins cut running back Ricky Claitt, tight end Phil DuBois and linebacker Dave Graf and placed four other players on injured reserve to reach the 50-player NFL roster limit.
Placed on injured reserve were 10-year veteran guard Ron Saul, veteran guard Fred Dean, linebacker Farley Bell and linebacker Quentin Lowry.
Claitt earned a roster spot last year as a free agent rookie out of Bethune-Cookman. He rushed for 215 yards and caught three passes for 34 yards while also playing on special teams.
DuBois made the club in 1979 as a rookie free agent from San Diego State. He played in 15 games as a rookie and spent last season on injured reserve after fracturing three ribs in the opening game.
Graf, from Penn State, spent six seasons with the Cleveland Browns before being released. He signed with the Redskins last spring as a free agent.
Saul, 33, who had knee surgery eight days ago, played in 118 NFL games in 10 seasons, the last five with the Redskins after coming from Houston for three draft picks. His twin brother, Rich, is the starting center with the Los Angeles Rams.
Dean, 26, was the starting left guard when training camp opened but ruptured his tricep muscle and needed surgery. He started games last season at three different positions.
Bell, the club's sixth-round draft pick last year, left camp and did not return in 1980. This year, he had worked at linebacker after being tried at defensive end and has been bothered by a sprained shoulder he suffered three weeks ago.
Lowry, from Youngstown State, suffered a thigh injury and missed the last week of practice.
