Do you need to rinse the turkey after the 3 days of brining prior to cooking?

I have a question about step 5 on the recipe "Russ Parsons' Dry-Brined Turkey (a.k.a. The Judy Bird)" from Genius Recipes. It says:

"Remove the turkey from the bag. There should be no salt visible on the surface and the skin should be moist but not wet. Place the turkey breast-side up on a plate and refrigerate uncovered for at least 8 hours."

Hi! I made this recipe for Thanksgiving. It's the best turkey I've ever had in my entire life. What's your question??
