made a public push for the team to sign safety Eric Reid Ziggy Hood Jersey , the Panthers did. With the shunning of Colin Kaepernick back on the front burner now that Washington’s depth chart as the position consists of Mark Sanchez and Josh Johnson, the question becomes whether any Washington players will make a public call for Kaepernick.Running back Adrian Peterson, by far the best thing that team currently has going for it, has come close to doing so, hitting the “like” button on a tweet that ends with three words: “Bring back Kap.”With Wednesday typically consisting of plenty of press conference and open locker rooms, it’s likely that Washington players will be asked about Kaepernick. Peterson definitely should be. And then the question will be whether what they say will make a difference.It likely won’t. Washington seems to be committed to not considering Kaepernick, even if he could be the difference between making it to the playoffs or heading home after Week 17. In so doing, the organization also seems to be determined to rattle off every false narrative and tired excuse for not calling Kaepernick, not matter how many times those false narratives and tired excuses are exposed and debunked.Fans of the team should be upset. Players on the team should be upset. Sanchez and Johnson aren’t the answer. Kaepernick could be. But whether it’s the misguided presumption that he’s “bad for business” or the product of collusion coordinated and controlled by the league office or simple retaliation for filing a collusion grievance (it’s amazing how many people think it’s fine for an employer to hold a grudge against an employee who pursues valid legal rights in the proper forum), Kaepernick won’t be a member of the Washington franchise. Which means we’ll never find out whether Kaepernick can do what he did the last time he ended up playing quarterback for a team that had lost Alex Smith to injury.

No...not that Michael Jordan. This Jordan was a four star recruit coming out of Plymouth High School in Canton Rob Kelley Jersey , Michigan. He decided to accept an offer to play for the Buckeyes and immediately paid dividends for coach Urban Meyer. In 2016, his first year on campus, Jordan started at guard and was named a Freshmen All-American. He was the first Freshmen to start on Ohio State’s offensive line since Hall of Famer Orlando Pace in 1994. As a Sophomore, he remained at left guard and garnered First Team All-Big 10 honors. After teammate Billy Price left for the NFL, Jordan would slide over to play center for his Junior year. The move seemed to fit Jordan as he brought in AP All-American honors (third team) in 2018, while being the leader of a solid Buckeye o-line. He was also named to the All-Combine Team after his performance in front of scouts in Indianapolis.StrengthsIdeal build for an IOL (especially in lower half), but has space to add more weightAnchors well against bull rush and was rarely observed getting pushed back into the pocketGets solid initial push in the run gameProvides versatility for Offensive Line Coach Bill Callahan as he excelled at both Guard and Center while at Ohio StatePulls well for a linemen of his sizeStill young, won’t be 22 until after the regular seasonWeaknessesAt times he can be slow getting out of his stancePass protection is lacking, as is the case with most rookie linemen, but run protection is solidNeeds to be more active with his handsHe should improve his functional strength before doing battle with next level defensive linemenLet’s See His WorkHow He Would Fit The RedskinsAt this juncture of the offseason, the Redskins lack a viable starting option at Left Guard. If you consider that the oft-injured Shawn Lauvao has manned that position for multiple seasons now Deshazor Everett Jersey , you could actually say that we have been lacking a true starter at the position for quite some time. It appears, hopefully, that Lauvao will not be returning for this upcoming season. Recently, the Skins inked Ereck Flowers to a deal with chatter that he may move inside from tackle to guard. Flowers is already seen as a reclamation project and might be better suited as just line depth. This means the team might finally look to the draft to select their next starting guard. Fortunately for the Skins, there are many options in this years draft to fill this mighty void. Jordan could be exactly what the team is looking for in that he could start from day one and may not cost the team more than a third round pick to secure his services. He’s still young and has room to develop, but he has plenty of starting experience and valuable versatility should injuries start to pile up again. Grabbing him in the third would allow the team to address other needs with their first couple of selections, while still adding a starter in the process. Should he be on the board when the Skins are on the clock in the third, Bruce may want to pull the trigger on this guy. Stay tuned Skins fans.
