http://www.richmond.com/sports/college/schools/virginia-commonwealth-university/mo-alie-cox-wows-nfl-scouts-will-visit-several-teams/article_8e0b8492-ce06-555f-85df-2232443fe8c5.html



Alie-Cox will attempt to make a living as an NFL tight end, and if Tuesday’s response was any indication, that dream is within his reach.

All but two NFL teams sent scouts to Richmond to see if he could make the transition, and the early returns were positive.

Three teams (the Titans, Ravens and Dolphins) met in-depth with him after the combine-style workout, and he left from the workout to the airport for a four-day, four-city tour of NFL facilities. He’ll visit the Kansas City Chiefs, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts, and as he was headed out the door his agent’s phone was still buzzing with more requests.

Several teams sent multiple scouts, including the Redskins, whose director of pro personnel, Alex Santos, was on hand.

The next step is for Alie-Cox to pick a team. He won’t have to wait for the draft — he’s officially a free agent, as he was eligible to be chosen in last year’s draft but wasn’t.......


.......Despite never having run a 40-yard dash in his basketball career, Alie-Cox put up a respectable time of 4.75 on Tuesday, a hair off his best in Pensacola.

He measured in at 6-foot-5½ inches and 262 pounds, having put on some weight (intentionally) since basketball season ended.

His vertical jump of 35.5 inches and his 3-cone drill time of 7.25 seconds would have placed him about seventh out of the tight ends at this year’s NFL combine, numbers that won’t turn heads, but will count as more than satisfactory given his lack of training.

I'd love to pick him up in the late rounds or as an UDFA and develop him on the practice squad for a year or two and then hopefully he can take over for Davis some day. I'm thinking he's going to need a lot of work as a blocker.

Turtle he's not in the draft. Since he already graduated last year and played his final year of eligibility while a grad student, he's a free agent. He's allowed to sign with whatever team he wants. We could sign him right now.

Quote:
The side of the original Ben’s Chili Bowl on U Street in Northwest D.C. got a fresh coat of paint Tuesday, just in time for the NBA playoffs. A new, temporary mural featuring Wizards guards John Wall and Bradley Beal now adorns the wall that had been bare since January, when the restaurant painted over five-year-old portraits of Bill Cosby, Barack Obama, Chuck Brown and DJ Donnie Simpson.

Appropriately, Washington’s backcourt mates are sporting the ‘Stars and Stripes’ alternate uniforms that the Wizards will wear for every home game throughout the playoffs.

Colts signed Hankins. 3-year deal worth $30 mil, way too much for a 2 down run stuffer IMO.

everyone should listen because Im going to say something positiive about Brice and the Chiseler- Glad we didn't sign him to that contract. Way overpriced for a fat tub of lard- Hell, put Jay in a NT- he can Dunkin Donut Up and finally be good enough to play in the big leagues Smile

Hankins is more than a run stuffer, he may look like a fat guy who can only play zero technique but not only can he stuff the run but he's a younger and better version of Chris Baker. Hankins can play the NT or 3 technique position.

In 2014 he had 7 sacks. He can do it all, his agent just overpriced him. That's why it took so long for him to get signed.

Just a damn shame that Chenier is going to be gone. Watching Wizards game is not going to be the same. Nice hart felt standing ovation for him the other night in his final home game and a great send off by Buck.

http://www.washingtonvalor.com/articles/mike-washington-named-afl-offensive-player-of-the-week

Quote:
The Arena Football League announced today that Mike Washington has been named Offensive Player of the Week for Week 1. Washington hauled in nine receptions for 112 yards and three touchdowns in the teams 51-38 season-opening win over the Baltimore Brigade, which was both team's inaugural game.

“Mike [Washington] is a special player,” Valor head coach Dean Cokinos said after the win. “Trying to match up one-on-one with him is really hard. We just took advantage of that.”

All three of Washington’s touchdown receptions came within in the first 20 minutes of the game, leading the Valor to an early 27-0 lead. The first of Washington’s trio of scores, a 34-yard catch-and-run, came just 2:49 into the game and marked the first touchdown in franchise history. Washington gathered his second touchdown on an eight-yard reception as time expired in the first quarter and his third on an 18-yard strike from QB Erik Meyer with 10:39 remaining in the second quarter.

“It’s a great start,” said Washington. “It’s one of many firsts for the Washington Valor and the DMV area – much like the first game, first touchdown and more. It’s a great start for what we think will be a great season.”

Playing in his eighth AFL season, Washington has amassed career totals of 569 receptions, 7,020 receiving yards and 144 touchdowns in stints with the Pittsburgh Power, Spokane Shock, Tampa Bay Storm, Arizona Rattlers and Washington Valor.

No point in kicking up a old thread.

Quote:
For example: Was the former general manager disliked throughout the organization, as Michael Robinson of NFL Network reported that McCloughan was told by team president Bruce Allen?

According to Garcon, McCloughan was well-like in the locker room.

“I know all the players did love Scot,” Garcon said. “Scot was a great guy, a football guy, all the players love Scot and definitely [are] going to miss him. Hopefully, he’ll still be around football because he was a great guy. He was all about football. It didn’t matter who you were, where you were from, he was just happy that you were playing football for him and he was happy that he scouted you and for him to bring you to D.C.”

Garcon also addressed a Washington Post report that suggested McCloughan was drunk in the locker room on multiple occasions.

“I’ve never seen him act any kind of way to make me even question that he was drunk,” Garcon said. “Scot, he’s not a vocal guy. He’s a quiet guy, he kind of stays to himself but when he starts talking you can tell the passion and love he has, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen him drunk.”

Organization is plain ridiculous.
