Cody Glenn Says He Lied About The Reason For His Suspension

Updated 7:50 p.m.:

Redskins fifth-round pick Cody Glenn was suspended for three games by Nebraska last season, this much we know.

Over the weekend I had sources with two other NFL teams say that from the information they had on the player, Glenn was suspended for a ticket-scalping incident.

And on Sunday, minutes after the linebacker was drafted by the Skins, we asked Glenn on a conference call why he was suspended. Trust me, it was no huge deal, no big probe, just one direct, open-ended question. And Glenn said that he was suspended for a ticket scandal.

Then, this afternoon an Associated Press story moves on the the wire from Nebraska, where a reporter spoke to Glenn. And Glenn told this reporter that he made up the story about the tickets when he spoke to the Redskins beat reporters on Sunday.

According to the AP story, Glenn said he told us the story about the tickets to get us off his back (although one innocuous questiuon during a conference call hardly constitutes a major inquest; if anything Glenn, who played at running back before switching to LB for his senior season, has made this a bigger issue than anyone ever perceived it to be).

"It's me being dumb, just trying to have people leave me alone," Glenn told the AP when asked today about why he gave the Washington media the story about the tickets. "It's something I said that I probably shouldn't have, looking at it now."

Sources from two NFL teams also said that when they asked Glenn at the scouting combine why he had been suspended, he told them it was for ticket scalping.

"Good luck whenever he gets waived," one NFL source said, noting that the teams Glenn lied to at the draft -- which could number quite a few -- will not be pleased that he misled them.

According to the AP, Nebraska's athletic department said yesterday that it had no knowledge of the player selling any tickets. Glenn refused to tell the AP what the real reason for the suspension was, saying it is a private matter between him and the school. Calls to Glenn's agent, Kevin Robinson, were not immediately returned.

Well, for a kid who earned academic and citizenship honors in college, he's managed to make the first 72 hours of his NFL career way more interesting than they needed to be. He was a reach pick in the fifth round, given his lack of defensive experience and slight frame, and rather than being another unassuming rookie, I'm guessing he's going to get a much bigger dose of the D.C. media when he arrives for minicamp Friday, complete with multiple follow-up questions and all.

Bizarre. Rarely a dull day at Redskins Park, even in the dog days of spring.

This shows the the guy has a little more growing up to do. I'm sure the truth behind the suspension will be leaked and then he and the skins can move on from this point.

And why again did we draft this guy instead of OL in the 5th round? Barely played LB and has character issues. May as well just forfeited the pick as I doubt this guy will be around come September.

And now sadly JLC has something else he can have a field day ripping the Skins on.

This is the kind of non story that JLC will ride all summer. Loved when he was on Wash Post Live the other day trying to say the Redskins draft picks in the later rounds are *always* terrible. Ivan Carter did his job and pointed out after JLC's opening hate-ologue that they did get Horton in the 7th round last year. JLC looked stunned for a second then had to give in. Hilarious.

Some intelligent reasonable person should ask Vinny Cerrato if the team thought so poorly of the linemen in the draft, it could get by with two undrafted terps.

'Cuz that seems to be the case, their lack of sexiness nothwithstanding.

Somebody did [Redskins.com: "Redskins Look to Young O-Linemen to Step Up"

Added Cerrato: “It wasn’t a deep draft for offensive linemen. For guards, it was not a very good draft. There were some good centers, but they all went late in the first round and we didn’t have a second round pick.

I understand your rancor.

But those of us who lack morals would rather get him in camp to make sure he doesn't have NFL quality skills first.

The redskins could use some young, broke, er, hungry linebacker types who want to ball out on special teams.

What he did in college is his stupid business. Let's see if he can play.

Part of his story, logically, doesn't make sense.

According to NCAA rules, athletes are not issued tickets to university sporting events at the University of Nebraska. Their guests get put on a list for admission into the event when they arrive. No tickets are printed.

So he couldn't have sold his tickets, he didn't have any to sell.

So if he did in fact sell tickets, the question becomes, where did he get them? You would think that NFL investigators would know NCAA rules and would have recognized the lie he apparently told, but they didn't. It's also apparent the Redskins didn't do their homework either.

There is more to this story, and Glenn isn't telling it obviously. But I seriously doubt it has anything to do with selling tickets.

If he did it to get the media to leave him alone, as JLC wrote, he accomplished the exact opposite.

Cody Glenn now will have 5-10 reporters around his locker the minute the press is allowed to talk to players at minicamp.

In short, he did something very, very stupid. I'm a Nebraska fan and the rumors about what Glenn really did have been flying for months. Glenn was telling the truth, the ticket scalping rumor was one of them. The other two, well, lets just say they're not legal issues or NCAA violations but they'd make Glenn embarrassed if they came out publicly.

Maybe the scouting department should do a little scouting on the players that we pick. The AD at the school flatly said he wasn't suspended for scalping tickets. But vinnie comes to DC and tells us thats what it was for. Any amount of actual scout work would have uncovered that he was not suspended for scalping tickets. It took one reporter one question to break the story open. This shows how poorly our front office is run.

Along with the way we signed punters this off season. Why do we sign one and then turn around and sign another guy. That makes no sense. Just sign the second guy first.

Mike Florio points out that the Jags currently have RT Tony Pashos (age 28), and just picket up 3xPro-Bowl/1xAll-Pro LT Tra Thomas (age 34) a couple of months ago. This year, they drafted OTs Eugene Monroe (1st round) and Eben Britton (2nd round).

The update posted by JLC, I don't know if we can (unfortunately) entirely blame Vinny for this one. Apparently, Glenn lied to everybody he talked to in the NFL. Isn't NFL security supposed to conduct background checks on draft players with issues?

If he lied to everybody, did NOBODY in the NFL talk to the Nebraska athletic department? Bo Pelini won't comment on who he talked to or who he didn't. But if Glenn got away with this with multiple teams, I'm inclined to believe nobody in the NFL did their homework.

This is almost as bizzare as the story of the kid who committed to Cal but they'd never recruited him.

I guess I don't take these things very seriously. Now a guy who shows up at the Combine or the first day of Camp and flunks his drug test -- he's probably too stupid to play on my team.

Is Glenn a good linebacker? How could we know? He played another position most of his career and didn't make it into the draftnik's sights, so we're virtually bereft of accurate info.

Same as we were with other Skins late round choices from lesser known backgrounds -- Golston, Anthony Montgomery, Reed Doughty, Kareem Moore, Chris Horton.

I think the pundits are unforgiveably lazy. They get a couple hundred college players from established programs in their database and call it a day. Unless they pick up on somebody new as a human interest story -- like Greg Toler, or Robert McCune a couple years ago, or the tackle at Miami this year -- we learn nothing about them until our various GMs call out their names in the late rounds.

Then we're shocked. Some better known player is probably still sitting there on the shelf, and our guy passed him up.

I don't care if he lied or not. He could have been Tim Tebow Jr and it still would have been a wasted pick. We should be developing a huge OL not an undersized LB.

Yes it absolutely matters. Cody Glenn lied about why he was suspended. The Redskins scouting department is obviously so inept that they failed to do enough research into the real reason he was suspended. It appears NFL security also failed in whatever background check they were supposed to do also. At this point I doubt they even talked to anybody from Nebraska.

Further, would you trust somebody in the locker room who's already proven to be a liar? The only way guys with character issues survive in the NFL is if they have superior talent. Cody Glenn doesn't have superior talent at LB. He's played one half of a season at LB in his life. If a guy's already proven to be a liar, I don't want him as a teammate.

I'm a Nebraska fan and even I say he needs to be cut. Then somebody needs to take a serious look at how this happened. What other "mysteries" with players are we going to find out about after drafts if the Skins scouting department doesn't do their jobs? Are we going to start finding out about a guy's major injury only after the draft and the Skins response is "Oops!"?

I've got to know how much of a dumpster-fire they thought Duke Robinson or Jamon Meredith were that they had this guy higher on their board than them. Thats if you believe they actually had a board after the third round. I just don't get their (Vinny & Co.) logic sometimes.

Seriously I'd be surprised if Cody even makes the team. At least one of the linemen in the 5th could've been used as depth. I just don't get it.

Yes, he did actually say the "issue was tickets" or something like that in a news article after the draft. He said they'd checked with Nebraska officials about it and it was no big deal.

Problem is, Nebraska officials have no idea what Vinny's talking about. They adamantly deny that they ever told Vinny anything about a ticket issue, and now Glenn says it was a lie.

So Vinny's an idiot, that's clear. But what in the world happened here where according to JLC other NFL teams also believed the same story?

I follow NU football closely. There have been several rumors about Glenn in Lincoln since his suspension. One of them was the drug test, one was the ticket scalping. The others were of a "inappropriate relationship" with a family member of a Nebraska assistant coach.

If it was a drug test, he would have been suspended by the NCAA. I've actually only heard that rumor once or twice. It seems to be the lesser of all possibilities.

Bo Pelini isn't going to ever publicly tell why Glenn got suspended. But because he comes from an NFL background before coming to college football in 2003, I think he would have told the truth to NFL teams. This is why I think Vinny probably failed to talk to anybody at Nebraska.

I'll bet that at some point, he comes clean to the reporters, they realize that it's a non-story, and all of a sudden, there aren't any updates, and the whole thing gets dropped, as far as the press is concerned.

And yeah, this guy is either going to be a STer, or a PSer for his first year, 95% chance. I'd think if he's got the ball skills that he seems to have due to his RB and LB skills, he's a STer pick... and teams need skill there, too.

I want to know how a 6' 4" WR who runs a sub-4.4 is not taken until the 7th round. I understand that there is more to being a good WR than pure measureables, but it seems that this pure ability alone would warrant him being taken sooner. Could this guy be the real deal? I don't know anything about him but it would appear to be a very good value, certainly low risk with good upside. Would be pretty ironic if he panned out and our cache of 2nd rounders from last year all washed out (although I hope that Kelly and/or Thomas will step up this yr)

This shows how the front office works. Vinny and Pelini are boys. So, he helps his boy by drafting the undersized linebacker and picking up his quarterback, Joe Ganz. This is Nebraska!, It is not a major power. I guess this helps his boy's recruiting.

Clinton Portis is the assistant GM. Dockery recommends that they sign 450+ guy who is his house guest and they actually sign him. They could not wait until he lost the weight first. No one was going to sign him at his current weight.

And Vinny's sister, I guess, recommended the other linebacker.

Interesting how many of you can write off the redskins picks in this draft when most if not all of us in "here" at RI do not have the time to scout most of these players like the Skins are able to.

Let's give Glenn a chance before we write him off. What is the worst that can happen? We drafted someone who did not make it. How many teams have drafted in the first rd a player who did not pan out? In that light, missing on a 5th rd pick is not the end of the world for the Skins. Or shouldn't be.

Marko Mitchell (6'4" 218) is listed as having run a 4.43 40 - which is still pretty good, but not sub 4.4 as reported above. I had him on my board as a late round flyer. Also had Greg Carr (6'6" 218 4.6-40 FSU) Figured either would be a good possession WR prospect. I think it was a good pick for a 7th rounder.

Kind of a no-brainer here. Can't even begin to explain this one...

Alex Boone was on the board in the 7th. Would have definitely been worth investing a late 7th rounder on the starting Left Tackle for Ohio State at 6' 7" 328. His draft stock fell because he got stupid with a bottle back in December. But he had to be worth a 7th. Move him to RT. Let Jansen and Buges straighten out his head...

Just gotta wonder what the "brain trust" did with their brains over the weekend.

Could you imagine getting Robinson and Boone in the 5th and 7th? What an awesome draft that could have been.

the real issue is why the Skins didn't even bother to take some chances on the OL. 18 guys were either drafted or signed as UFA's in the past week. Only 1 was on the OL and he is a massive project, at best.

That IS the story. The #1 issue with this team is virtually ignored. Just like it has been for years.

I'm fine with Orakpo at #13. He was probably the 'best available player' at our positions of need (DE, LB or OT).

But after that, pick for the OL.

That's the real scandal, that Cody Glenn was selected at all.

JLC's recap of the incident is not I how read the AP story, NOR does it make sense. I guess he is fat AND stupid. Great combo.

According to the AP story, his original ticket selling story was apparently told when he was first suspended. He was getting dogged everywhere, and came up with the ticket selling story to get everyone to back off. Naturally, once that was the story, he kept it the story when asked by the NFL teams at the combine. AND THEN REPEATED the same story when asked by the Washington press covering the Redskins. Jasno take this and runs with it as if the hard core DC football press were the ones who first got him to give up the tix selling story. Uhhh, not so much.

No it is not the message that sucks, it is the messenger we cannot stand. A two-timing punk who fabricates crap and lives off Redskins' fans frustration with the underachieving team.

Redskins don't need JLC's or any other fan's permission to sign or release players. I was surprised to see them chase Cutler and Sanchez because I think JC is a good QB, on the way up. But that's just me. If the Redskins think they need to upgrade at QB that is what they are going to do.

Here's what we do know, from his own mouth:

1. He was suspended for three games.
2. He lied to the press about why he was suspended.

What other facts do you think we need? Do you think he was suspended because he skipped practice to visit his sick grandmother? No, he probably would have said that.

Here's what I conclude from the facts we do know:

1. The man is dishonest.
2. This is not the type of man I would like to see on the Redskins. I would hope the Redskins have the same feeling about him.
3. Someone in the Redskins FO, probably Marrocco Brown, did a bad job of scouting this man.

What I would expect at this point is a complete and honest revelation of what went on or the man is not offered a contract and not allowed to attend mini-camp this weekend.

Posted by: djorl | April 28, 2009 11:37 PM | Report abuse
The following is all supposition, if I were GM. But here is what I think happened.

In the scouting review process, one of the questions I would ask to my coaches and scout is "Is this player better than one that we have now?" For example, is Duke Robinson better than our lowest rated G?" If scouts and Coaches agree that he is not, then Duke R would not be on my board, even in the 5th, 6th or 7th round. When he was there in the 5th, we did not even consider him.

Next point is during review process, I would call all my buddies in the college coachinf ranks, and ask if they have any seniors who are really good athletes, but are not being focused on by the combine. Last year we picked up Chris Horton by doing this with UCLA coach. VC is close to Nebraska coach, who apparently told him that Glenn was a real athlete who could be a dynamic special team player. JZ was apparently worried that some other team would have also discovered Glenn and taken him before we had our 5th rd pick.

So let's calm down and put the kid on the field and see if he can perform. He did not do anything illegal, did not break NCAA rules. If he is protecting the honor of some young girl, let it alone. Don't assume that NFL did not investigate this. And don't assume that VC didn't know the real reason.

I'm not a FO apologist, I don't agree with everything they do. But they are not totally incompetent, as some of you want to believe.

I'm sorry, but are we really that good that we're drafting players to be great on special teams?

That means in the later rounds we drafted two "dynamic" special teams players, a wide receiver who will probably stay on practice squad, and a backup fullback and/or fourth string TE. We should win the Superbowl if that's what we're drafting for...


come on, the potential for Duke, Herman Johnson, Boone, and Meredith is just as good if not better than the potential for any of the other guys we drafted in the 5th round and later, but they'd also be filling a much more direct need in the process. Those picks were just common sense when Duke kept dropping. Hell, I was upset when we passed him in the third, but ecstatic when I saw him available.

'...never thought Favre was that good anyway...'


Yeah, he's lucky.

He sucked for the Jets and nobody but one player on the team called him out for the wack INTs he tossed in an important late season game.

The packers' fanbase loves him, though.

The guy has a cannon for an arm.

The guy's cannon arm is about as accurate as the work of a stoned accountant.

The media genuflects whenever his name is dropped. Heck, John Madden would have his baby if it was biologically possible.

He's got a ring.

He'll make a ton of cash endorsing whatever someone wants his help selling.

He's a multiple time pro bowler.

He excelled under Holmgrem as he was lucky enough to play for one of the best coaches ever.

He also was lucky enough to play for a team that continues to find decent wide receivers, backs, and tight ends (Bradford, Freeman, Franks, Driver, Bennett, Levens, etc).

But if the question is, should the skins take a chance on Brett Favre? The answer is and should be no, no way.

If we took Farve we could go from one of the best INT records for a qb to one of the worst and STILL be 8-8.

Go to redskins.com and read where Vinny says they felt the pool of lineman wasn't that good or deep--the guard play especially.

And the thing is, both Gruden and Mariucci said the same thing during the draft, so maybe the skins are right this time.

Plus: let's not forget many folks had the Williams kid rated as the fifth best center prospect inthe nation and we got him without drafting him.

I am not saying this is the case, but perhaps Glenn was telling the truth and Nebraska have asked him to shut up and take one for the team

Now I don't know what other rumours were out there, but all the reports tend to point to him being a relatively decent kid that suddenly got suspended near the end of his final season. Maybe Nebraska, maybe someone else had been giving him tickets (and not necessarily to just football games).

The whole thing just seems a bit odd. Why would Nebraska feel the need to contradict what Cody was saying. They could have just given a no comment, it's a confidential matter. The reason that comes to my mind is that Cody's confession could be damaging to Nebraska.

Maybe he has just been caught in a lie because he is incredibly embarrassed by something he did. Either way, I am inclined to give him a chance and hope that he turns into a steal and stops looking like the desperate reach he does at the moment.

Mike Mayock and Charles Davis breaking down tape on a guy during the Path to the Draft show is untouchable. The combine is the league's baby and satisfies like salty, crunchy comfort food.

The draft day coverage featuring Gruden/Mariucci/Faulk providing intelligent commentary was great.

Gruden belongs on tv. Mariucci belongs in a funeral home handing out programs and flowers. Neither one of them will ever coach again.

Best draft day comment:

Smoking, that is.

Here's what I conclude from the facts we do know:

1. The man is dishonest.
2. This is not the type of man I would like to see on the Redskins. I would hope the Redskins have the same feeling about him.
3. Someone in the Redskins FO, probably Marrocco Brown, did a bad job of scouting this man.

What I would expect at this point is a complete and honest revelation of what went on or the man is not offered a contract and not allowed to attend mini-camp this weekend.

TE here's what I conclude from the past ten years:

1. The owner is dishonest.

2. The GM is a puppet and an idiot.

3. These guys are not the type of people that should be running the 'Skins organization or any other NFL organization.

4. The NFL should have blocked the sale of the team to Snyder and company.

What we all expected were for them to draft O Linemen with the majority of their picks. They did not do a good job of adressing the team needs. The young man in question would not be an issue if the FO would have drafted as we all expected them to. Mr. Glenn, in an immature action that all young people commit, compounded an already existing problem with a lie. The lie is not a crime. It was an attempt to cover-up what will prove to be an embarrassing situation that he was involved in. He gets a pass on this. Snyder and Vinnie passed on pass protection.

Not sure if it’s the same people up here who say Portis is “too slow/can’t break a big one anymore” that are now saying to go get Edge James……but if it is, Edge has lost a lot more from his game than Portis has…..When Portis gets the ball there is at least some chance for him to break off a big run. IMO, there is NO chance Edge can break anything longer than 12 yards. I can’t remember him having any highlight runs since before his knee injuries.

There's another reason Daniels has taken to Orakpo, who also could see some time at linebacker but definitely will rush the passer on third downs.

"Brian reminds me of me when I was coming into the league," Daniels said with a chuckle. "I was a tweener coming out of college. I weighed 263 pounds, and I had started at linebacker my junior year."

Think Glenn's ticket issues are an issue, read this:

Haynesworth hearing delayed.

Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth's hearing in Franklin, Tenn., on two misdemeanors was changed from Tuesday to June 8.

Haynesworth, who starred for the University of Tennessee and the Tennessee Titans before signing with the Redskins on Feb. 27, pleaded not guilty March 30 to charges of reckless driving and having an expired registration that resulted from a Dec. 13 incident in which he reportedly tried to pass another car, whose driver was seriously injured after crashing into a concrete median. Haynesworth remains free on $1,000 bond.

If convicted, Haynesworth faces a sentence of up to six months in jail and a $500 fine for reckless driving and 30 days in jail and a $50 fine for the expired registration.


So if you're Prince Albert, what do you fear: six months in jail or the loot you're gonna get sued for in the civil case?

I'd take jail time over given up money, but the thing is, jail time might mean giving up something else.

So sue me.

If he says he was scalping tickets, then that's exactly what he was doing.

He was probably getting money from non-students and then putting their names on his ticket list, since athletes get will-call tickets for their families.

Some schools even allow you to use other athlete's tickets if they don't have family that come to the games. If you pool 3 or 4 players (2 tickets each) and sell them that's 8 tickets at $65 per.

That's good money for a college kid.

http://myespn.go.com/blogs/nfceast/0-9-184/Could-Cards--loss-be-Redskins--gain-.html


The Arizona Cardinals released three pretty good players Tuesday in running back Edgerrin James, cornerback Rod Hood and defensive end Travis LaBoy. The James release was pretty much guaranteed when the Cardinals selected Chris "Beanie" Wells in the first round of the draft Saturday.

I think the Redskins should target both James and LaBoy. Last year, the Redskins became so desperate at running back that they brought in washed-up Shaun Alexander to back up Clinton Portis. The Cowboys and Giants have tremendous depth at the running back position, but the Redskins are relying on Ladell Betts and Rock Cartwright to spell Portis. James would be a nice addition to the team. He and Portis are both former University of Miami guys, and I think he could flourish catching passes out of the backfield.

The Redskins would also be wise to pursue LaBoy. They have Brian Orakpo now, but you can't enough quality defensive ends. LaBoy played with defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth for the Titans so they're already on the same page. LaBoy would immediately challenge for a starting job. That would also help limit the reps for aging defensive ends Phillip Daniels and Renaldo Wynn.

One as of yet unborn NFL source tells me that Orakpo is also a big lier. It turns out when Orky was in elementary school, he had an ingrown toe nail. He kept this information to himself for many many years. When I asked him on a conference call about his old injuries, he said he might have had an outgrown toe nail as a child!

Nothing wrong with lying to the media.

In fact it makes perfect sense.


Not sure what college you cheer for, buttsniffer, but where I'm from in Big Boy Conference Football, it's a big deal down here, and a starting linebacker suspended from the team is gonna get hassled and harrassed by annoying reporters over the smallest things. Let's look at how JLC described it, which is laughable :


"According to the AP story, Glenn said he told us the story about the tickets to get us off his back (although one innocuous questiuon during a conference call hardly constitutes a major inquest; if anything Glenn, who played at running back before switching to LB for his senior season, has made this a bigger issue than anyone ever perceived it to be)."


Wow. Sorry but he wasn't the first and now won't be the last to ask about this. The guy has said that everywhere he went people kept asking him about it and there were a bunch of rumors flying around and the ticket scandal was ONE of the rumors already floating around. After being asked about it forever, the kid finally said "You know what, that's it, I did that."

BOLD PREDICTIONS

Redskins go 8-8 at best, JC has average year and RI posters use excuses such as "any good QB needs three years in the same system" and "well he doesn't have anybody to throw to", meanwhile Stafford and Sanchez win more games. JC supporters state "well JC only threw 4 interceptions" while ignoring his subpar 10 touchdowns.


Bobcats make the playoffs as a 6 seed and lose in 5 games to whoever they play.


Bulldogs have a surprising good year, but lose when it counts.

willimas = erasmus james - losing 7th round pick.


Posted by: chrislarry | April 29, 2009 9:58 AM

Erasmus James barely played any games in the league, and only started 12 games in 3 years. Williams strarted 48 games in 4 years before getting the herniated disk.

As for his weight? According to Mel Kiper, at 375 lbs:

4. Buffalo -- Mike Williams, OT, Texas
I had Williams rated ahead of Bryant McKinnie after the knee injury wasn't viewed as a concern. He could step in at either right or left tackle. At Texas, he protected the blind side of Chris Simms at right tackle, but he has prior experience at left tackle. He is a great pass blocker and is exceptional at sustaining blocks as a run blocker. He is nimble at 375 pounds, often getting downfield to help spring running backs for large gains. He has enough polish to step in and be an immediate starter and anchor on the Bills' offensive line.

Did you know Mike Williams was was voted Buffalo's best offensive lineman in 2004 at 370 lbs?

Injuries derailed Williams, and he's had 3 years to heal. He's 29, so maybe Buges will want to wait until he's 33 to start. But I really think he might be a find for us in short yardage.

Of course I have no special inside info but I've heard more than once that teams will sometimes use a late round slot on a player that they think would sign somewhere else if they left him to free agency.

It's an honor among players to be drafted but some agents prefer free agency for more marginal folks. Especially if the agent feels the kid will get a better shot with a different team (and yes, agents develop close relationships with certain teams and their GMs).

Posted by: Samson151 | April 29, 2009 1:15 PM | Report abuse

For instance, Maryland has a close relationship with Joe Bugel and Terp linemen know he will give them a fair shot. So if another club wanted an Ed Williams, they might feel they have to spend a 7th on him to keep him away from Washington.

I agree the guy's a dubious pick, but I thought they drafted him and one or two others for special teams. Where does he rank among potential special teams guy?

Posted by: talent_evaluator | April 29, 2009 1:07 PM

We're drafting for SPECIAL TEAMS? C'mon.

You don't pass Duke Robinson for a LB/special teamer who hasn't even played a complete season at his position. Did they forget that Duke was the STARTING GUARD for one of the best running attacks in the nation, and one of the highest rated guards on the board? If he wasn't even on their board, as some people claim, then they need to start firing people - because they BLEW IT.

True but guys for the specials can be had off the waiver wire. Khary Campbell is still out there.

Meanwhile our offensive line depth is more than just precarious its like asking for catastrophe. I sincerely doubt that Robinson would have spent much time on the bench if he had decent talent.

peri,

Thats just it not sure about his talent, I would need to know why he fell so far after being projected as a 2nd round guy.

Trust me I would not be complaining if we picked him, I'm just saying I don't think he would be able to contribute this year. Remember there are only so many O-linemen that can be kept on the team. If they didn't think he was better then what they had at backup, then there was no point in drafting him.

Obviously, this is going to turn into a "battle of opinions", which is the bulk of off season discussion anyway...

I just think Duke would have a much better chance to contribute in a big way and was more deserving of the pick. He and Herman Johnson did go off the board in the 5th BTW, so the time was right for the pick.

IMO we had much more to gain going that way.

We could have ended up with Sanchez, no 1st next year, and a Campbell trade (possibly packaged with other players).

We got a DE/SLB in Orakpo with solid value and need. For this FO this is an OUTSTANDING selection.

We got a decent corner prospect in Barnes not a great value , but certainly a need. This pick is GOOD.

The next 4 picks are LB/RB, LB, TE/FB, WR. These are versatile players that have a real chance to find roster spots. These are GOOD picks.

I wanted OL in the draft, too. But, we got 3 young guys that played on the same line at Maryland(chemistry). We got Dockery, M. Williams, and a slew of young OL that can compete for depth (and maybe starting) positions. So we're OK here.

That's OUTSTANDING, GOOD, GOOD, OK over total rebuilding question mark

Not sure why people are so quick to write off Glenn's character or brand him a liar because of this incident. Glenn did not lie to police or lie under oath. The media outlets are not his employer. He owed no duty to tell the truth. Lying was (he thought) an easy way to end what he considered to be harassment.

For those who believe lying is always wrong and a lie brands one for life as 'a liar' do you always respond honestly when your signifcant other asks how he/she looks? Have you ever told a child about Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny or the Tooth Fairy.

The truth is, media outlets profit by publicizing other people's misfortunes. The media outltet was asking Glenn a question so they could, in effect, publish a story which would embarass him. They were not going to pay Glenn for this information, but the reporter stood to benefit and so did his employer. Given this, why does Glenn owe them the truth?

This kind of behavior always inspires indigation by the media. It makes their job harder because they have to check their 'facts'.

I think they should have to work harder. Maybe they would make fewer mistakes.

"Dubious character" to my minds doesn't necessarily mean criminal behavior. Of course I don't accuse him of that. However, word was he was not a hard worker at USC, which indicates the kind of character flaw that can be a detriment in the NFL.

I know that sometimes young people just need to be shaken up and motivated and with any luck, that will haappen to the unholy trio drafted last year.

But LAST year, I put them in the dubious character category and stand by my assessment.

From NFL.com: " ... at least they'll have some ammunition to select a quarterback from what is expected to be a better pool of quarterbacks in next year's draft. ..."

It looks as though the Skins have resolved to head into 2009 with Campbell. But that don't mean that the QB issue is resolved. Suppose Campbell has at best a mediocre year. What next? Who in next year's draft would be a QB the Skins would covet? The QB names we have heard are Bradford, McCoy, Tebow and Snead. Bradford, McCoy and Tebow are QBs in spread Os, not good if you are looking for a QB for a WCO. Besides, Tebow's passing skills would be subpar at the NFL level. Snead is okay, but overrated. At second rounder at best. Might there be another Man of Troy who could in the span of one season demonstrate skills as good as if not better than the San man's? Snyder and Carroll do talk.

The most impressive performance this offseason at pro day workouts was turned in by Florida St.'s CB/KR Michael Ray Garvin. Garvin beat all the times turned in at the recent NFL Combine. He has been a two sport star at FSU, performing on both the football ad track teams. He is a world-class track sprinter who turned in times of 4.24 and 4.28 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the FSU workout. Both of those times were better than the fastest time at the NFL Combine turned in by Maryland receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey who had an impressive time of 4.30 time. Garvin led the nation as a kickoff returner, in addition to playing cornerback on the talented FSU defense. He also added a 36" vertical leap, a 10'8" broad jump and times of 4.34 seconds in the short shuttle and 6.97 seconds in the three-cone drill. Those numbers were among the top ten of every event by the best cornerbacks at the recent NFL Combine.

This will be the last comment I make on not drafting Duke or any OL with our picks. If you watched any Oklahoma games last year you see their RB's running through gaping holes and Bradford just standing in the pocket never getting touched. They lost to Fla in the champ game but were marching up and down the field before having some bad turnovers. Duke was widely considered their best or 2nd best player on the line with Loadholt. If Loadholt went in the 2nd, Duke was certainly worth a chance in the 5th at a position where we were terrible for half the year last year. Bringing back Kendall would be fine but why not give a dude 12 years younger a shot to crack the roster. It is the short sighted nature of our moronic FO.

Lastly, Moe you are a character. Keep it up.

The most impressive performance this offseason at pro day workouts was turned in by Florida St.'s CB/KR Michael Ray Garvin. Garvin beat all the times turned in at the recent NFL Combine. He has been a two sport star at FSU, performing on both the football ad track teams. He is a world-class track sprinter who turned in times of 4.24 and 4.28 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the FSU workout. Both of those times were better than the fastest time at the NFL Combine turned in by Maryland receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey who had an impressive time of 4.30 time. Garvin led the nation as a kickoff returner, in addition to playing cornerback on the talented FSU defense. He also added a 36" vertical leap, a 10'8" broad jump and times of 4.34 seconds in the short shuttle and 6.97 seconds in the three-cone drill. Those numbers were among the top ten of every event by the best cornerbacks at the recent NFL Combine.

This kid is not signed to any roster as of now!

GreatOne has the post of the day. So simple, yet so thought-provoking for his JaLaCa suspension post.

As much as losers like RedDepartmentofMotorVehicles and talent_devaluator tried, they have failed, miserably.

Posted by: TheTruth11 | April 29, 2009 4:05 PM | Report abuse

Posse, out of the two players (Duke and Loadholt), Loadholt was supposed to drop because he didn't have the technique. But Loadholt is huge, like 6'8 Mike Williams huge, and Duke I guess is smaller, but Duke has the technique down and everything.


And sorry, I don't buy that he isn't motivated. I'm willing to burn a 5th/6th round draft pick on a very talented college kid that is unmotivated, and take the chance that making close to one mil a year will motivate him. And if he doesn't get motivated, you see if he can still perform at a high level even when unmotivated. And if not, oh well.

Instead we got some lame OLB who won't ever start a game and probably won't be on the team in two years.

"Larry Foote played a lot of football as a starting inside linebacker for the Steelers the past five seasons, and in a strange twist, his search for more playing time will cause them to release him. Foote said he wants to continue his career as a starting linebacker where he can play more often and asked the Steelers to accommodate him. After finding no offers in a trade over the weekend of the draft, sources on the club say they plan to release him sometime after this weekend's minicamp, which Foote will not attend. They were going to release him this morning, then decided to wait as they pursue last-ditch efforts to trade him."

'...Hey moe- take a break dude freaky combo (Eric Sermon/Busta Rhymes) you have going on there

I used to deejay back in the '80s when nobody believed hip hop would last (that's three turntables, a couple of crates of records, some Old English, an annoying friend trying to spit a rhyme or two, some of the 'plants' I grew in the closet burned along the way.)

And so, what happens a lot of the time is two or three songs will mix inside my head like an old school 'monster mix' (memba that?) on a continuous loop until I think of another song to blend into the mix.

That's how I think now: multiple things blending into one big bombastic beat on a constant loop.

Yes: this is too much information.

But, hey, I never sold no stolen tickets when I was in college, so back off.

Injuries derailed Williams, and he's had 3 years to heal. He's 29, so maybe Buges will want to wait until he's 33 to start. But I really think he might be a find for us in short yardage.

If he's more mobile (once he sheds weight) than Jansen he may get to start at RT. I fear that he may end up at LT due to injury. Chance of a lifetime for him ... still ...

If you think about it Jansen has had close to 3 years off due to injuries he's sustained and he is older. Samuels is probably around 2. Thomas 3. Heyer has not had as many starts as Williams. The guy really has a legitimate shot given that Dockery likes him, which means Samuels and Thomas will too. Another project like moving Wilson to linebacker. Yeah, they really ought to consider moving Renzo back to G/T from the defense.

Now that's what I call an overreaction.

One point: when you passed the polygraph, etc. for your current employment, did you really consider that a demonstration of your character and integrity? Because some of the folks who sailed through those same rigors work for an Agency currently in the news for torturing people.

How much character and integrity do they possess?

People tell lies. Those lies can indicate a serious character flaw, or be a sign of immaturity, or simply be a reflection of their 'end justifies the means' philosophy of life (now I'm thinking about certain prominent Wall Streeters). A kid telling a lie to get around the media's unflattering attention isn't the same thing as, for instance, lying under oath.

We don't know much about Cody Glenn other than he's a good football player who apparently lied to a reporter, and got caught.

We can't predict his future on the basis of that incident. Just like we can't predict your behavior based on how you did on a polygraph.

I'm sure the kid could give two sh!ts what you or the media think of him.

Also about lying to the coach I bet more then have the team has lied to the coach on numerous occasions.

So don't judge people when you yourself have probably done worse things.

Ice and Flounder,

Now I myself said, I may be overly upset about this. My issue isn't what he lied about. Its that he lied in the first place. Then he turns around and tell Nebraska media that he did it "to get them off my back". That right there shows me he has no remorse or problem with telling lies. Have I ever lied to my employer to answer your question given their investigative capabilities No I haven't. Plus 100% of activities on my job are documented and reviewed by a supervisor daily. It would be commiting career suicide not loosing just another "job". You see in my line of work we rely on each other to get the job done whatever the task may be. In football I believe the same attribute is required of you maybe not to the extent of mines, but it is. Its called teamwork and honestly Mr. Glenn comes off to me like he's all about self. Oh sure he probably is a good or even great football player, but how can I trust you to do your part on that field as your teammate if I'm concerned if you're going to lie when I ask you if you know what to do out there. Like I said, I may be overly upset, but its also the fact that he isn't worth the pick he was chosen at that makes it a little hard for me to just brush it off.

point: when you passed the polygraph, etc. for your current employment, did you really consider that a demonstration of your character and integrity? Because some of the folks who sailed through those same rigors work for an Agency currently in the news for torturing people.

How much character and integrity do they possess?

So its just football like JM said, huh? So you like pulling for a franchise whose goal year in and year out seems to be either .500 or first or second round of the playoffs. I'm not saying it their goal, but that's what it seems to me. Personally I'm not a .500 or first or second round kind of guy. Now many of us on here seem to have an opinion on how to address the Redskins problems and get to what should be the goal a championship. Picking a LB who is really a fullback is kind of a waste when you should want someone with a little more experience at the position. That falls on our FO's shoulders. I mean your yard needs serious upgrading so would you hire the hair stylist recently turned landscaper or the landscaper with more lanscaping experience? And someone tell me why do we keep talking about when coach Z is going to get fired and why cerrato isn't on the hotseat his damn self?

Why?

Take a look at the redksins' linebacker depth chart:

London Fletcher
Chris Wilson
Robert Thomas
Cody Glenn
Brian Orakpo
Albert Fincher
Rocky McIntosh
Robert Hanson
HB Blades

Who do you cut if you sign either Hill or Larry Foote?

You have to remember you need the young'ns to battle for special teams slots.

Me?: I sign Foote and line up in a 3-4 look: Orakpo, Foote, Fletcher, McIntosh with Hanyesworth playing nose and Carter/Wilson playing left end with Daniels playing right.

Foote comes fom a great defensive team and would be a great addition.

I cut Blades/Fincher or Glenn/Hanson don't make the team.

Being able to go 3-4 hybrid allows me to blitz Orakpo from the same side as Carter or he puts his hand on the ground and plays de with Rocky on his side.

Could Cards' loss be Redskins' gain?

April 29, 2009 9:59 AM

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

The Arizona Cardinals released three pretty good players Tuesday in running back Edgerrin James, cornerback Rod Hood and defensive end Travis LaBoy. The James release was pretty much guaranteed when the Cardinals selected Chris "Beanie" Wells in the first round of the draft Saturday.

I think the Redskins should target both James and LaBoy. Last year, the Redskins became so desperate at running back that they brought in washed-up Shaun Alexander to back up Clinton Portis. The Cowboys and Giants have tremendous depth at the running back position, but the Redskins are relying on Ladell Betts and Rock Cartwright to spell Portis. James would be a nice addition to the team. He and Portis are both former University of Miami guys, and I think he could flourish catching passes out of the backfield.

The Redskins would also be wise to pursue LaBoy. They have Brian Orakpo now, but you can't enough quality defensive ends. LaBoy played with defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth in Tennessee so they're already on the same page. LaBoy would immediately challenge for a starting job. That would also help limit the reps for aging defensive ends Phillip Daniels and Renaldo Wynn.

Ho hummmm, and they also announced that they would be trying to convert Wilson to play SLB. Wilson has the size and speed to play SLB or WLB for that matter. What happened to that?

Blades is a middle linebacker plain and simple no muss no fuss. NOT AN OLB except in a pinch. Evidence? The last Philly game when MWash returned. That was the best defense in the NFL in that game. There is no doubt in my mind.

My guess is that Blache may attempt to implement a 4-3/3-4 hybrid scheme like they do in AZ and now in Pittsburgh and Denver. With a heavy emphasis on 4-3. That means stopping the run comes first. If Wilson and Orapko don't do that they become situational players. With what they will be paying Orapko ... he will have to play. He probably isn't going to play end on rushing downs. You want him him in the game on every down? He has to become an outside linebacker and hope his knee injuries aren't like Rocky's.

In this defense if you can't stop the run you are situational and are hardly seen. Orapko can't stop the run ... yet. Given his size he would probably be more effective at linebacker doing that once the skill is learned. Otherwise he is situational.

Spencer, a third-round pick by Houston in 2006, dressed for 10 games last season, but did not play....


The Jags still have Jags RT Tony Pashos (age 28), and just picked up 3xPro-Bowl/1xAll-Pro LT Tra Thomas (age 34) a couple of months ago... in addition to OTs Monroe (1st round) and Britton (2nd round).

Keep your eyes open, Vinny! (Hey, not THAT wide!)

Just for the record, I'm anti-lying.

Don't abide torture either.

They are both the opposite of good.

But I'm not ready to jettison an otherwise squandered draft pick, cause the kid is immature and not use to all the media attention.

And I wouldn't bet Barno's life on a polygraph test...a polygraph test is about as reliable as water boarding.

I live in Lincoln and have read/watched many things about Glenn the last few years. I can honestly tell you that other than this breach of a single unknown team rule, he has carried himself well.

He switched positions (was getting carries) to fill the team’s biggest need at the request of his coach. He did well and was learning at a nice pace.

I’m sure that some of these late picks were made to excell at special teams. Glenn is an athlete that can contribute and will not destroy the team.

It's hard to fathom. Was listening to Charley Casserly say the Skins didn't think much of his year's crop of OL beyond the first few. Evidentlly. The one who worries me is Randy Thomas. I don't even like the idea of letting him play.

One of the bloviators on that same show claimed the Skins were really unimpressed on Mike Oher. Ozzie obviously liked him enough to use #23 on him. But then, despite their success in other areas and their willingness to use high draft choice on linemen, the Ravens have had trouble stabilizing at tackle. Gaither's not just young and inexperienced, he's just plain raw. Didn't even play that much in college, and most NFL linemen stay the whole four years. The Ravens looked great pounding on the Skins last year, but other teams exposed the weakness, and they were forced to win games with turnovers and defense -- their strength, but still...

All I can say is, Stephon Heyer better be ready.

Take a look at the redksins' linebacker depth chart:

London Fletcher
Chris Wilson
Robert Thomas
Cody Glenn
Brian Orakpo
Albert Fincher
Rocky McIntosh
Robert Hanson
HB Blades

Who do you cut if you sign either Hill or Larry Foote?

You have to remember you need the young'ns to battle for special teams slots.

Me?: I sign Foote and line up in a 3-4 look: Orakpo, Foote, Fletcher, McIntosh with Hanyesworth playing nose and Carter/Wilson playing left end with Daniels playing right.

Foote comes fom a great defensive team and would be a great addition.

I cut Blades/Fincher or Glenn/Hanson don't make the team.

Being able to go 3-4 hybrid allows me to blitz Orakpo from the same side as Carter or he puts his hand on the ground and plays de with Rocky on his side.

That's a killa proposition!

And whomever they choose to keep has to be a guy who can do more than one thing.

I think it would be Carter, Fletch, McIntosh, and Orakpo as the 4 LBs in a 3-4, with Wilson rotating in with Carter/Orakpo and Blades rotating in with Fletch/McIntosh.

And up front, it would most likely be Griff and Daniels flanking Haynesworth, with Monty, Golston, Alexander, and Wynn rotating in with them in some manner.

I don't think it's an ideal fit, but we certainly have the personnel to run certain packages at this point.

Personally, I'd like to see variants of the 4-6 defense brought back. The Titans, Ravens, and Eagles all run (or did run) variants of that defensive scheme, and I think with the addition of Haynesworth and Orakpo, along with our very strong secondary, the Redskins have the ability for some very creative schemes.

"Blades is a middle linebacker plain and simple no muss no fuss. NOT AN OLB except in a pinch. Evidence? The last Philly game when MWash returned. That was the best defense in the NFL in that game. There is no doubt in my mind."

Blades struggled last season filling in for MWash because he's not a SLB. He doesn't have the size, athleticism, and strength to consistently match up on the strong side. But when he filled in for Rocky McIntosh on the weak side, such as towards the end of the 2007 season, he was much more effective (he, along with the rest of the defense, was masterful in stopping Adrian Peterson and Marion Barber down the stretch that year). I think Blades would work out just fine as a rotational WLB. He's got the mind and tenacity to play there, so long as he's not constantly matched up on Jason Witten.

The antidote for our pass-rush is simple. We don't need a 3-4, and we didn't need Orakpo.

Because I want to keep a 'pure' defensive end in R Jackson and can use Wilson as both de and slb.

We need the extra roster spot for a lineman. Presently, we waste a spot by carrying three quarterbacks, one of whom, Brennan, dresses on game day for some odd reason. Given the age on our o-line, we should carry an extra center/guard type instead.

Nothing against Blades, btw. He is a good player. But I'd like to have young athletic linebackers that are all interchangable.

The idea behind it is fine, but to use Rob Jackson, who played in 3 games total and managed one tackle, as the deciding force isn't the best argument. If the Redskins had a young, TALENTED defensive end, then this would be a more compelling idea, but Rob Jackson has far from proven himself to be that. And it's not like we had DEs that were lighting the world on fire last season.

Plus, if you're cutting a LB, Robert Thomas, Alfred Fincher, Cody Glenn, and Robert Hanson all get the chop before Blades, unless they prove to actually be of greater value. And that's not an easy thing to do for late round picks, especially considering what Blades has done so far in his career.

Worst Fifth Round Pick

Cody Glenn, OLB, Nebraska (Washington Redskins)

The selection of Cody Glenn was mystifying. He’s a former running back who switched to OLB this past season. He’s been injured during his career and had limited production last year, before being suspended for violating team rules. The Redskins needed help at linebacker, and I’m sure they would have selected Ohio State’s Marcus Freeman if he were available. But passing on Jamon Meredith, who would have added depth on the Redskins offensive line, and reaching for a player
that has character and injury concerns doesn’t make sense.

I'll give you the injuries, but injuries don't equate to a 'sucky' OLine. And we made the playoffs both years we had injuries. And Portis was still banging out 100+ yard games.

You have to live with the injuries cuz that's part of the game. Jansen maybe the only one who would have been gone it wasn't for the CAP. Evryone else would be here regardless because they had no prior major injuries.

Plus, if we had kept Heyer in their last season, their would have been better protection over there......

True.

Jackson is an unproven 7th rounder defensive end.

Having Orakpo makes him expendable.

Chris Wilson had more playing time and the attempt to get him to play slb shows the team may value him more.

But I think Vinny said he wanted to see Jackson get a legit shot, which means Jackson stays.

Whatever we do, we should consider anything that allows us to carry an extra offensive lineman on games days.

I never said the offensive line was poor in ability, other than Jansen and to an extent Rabach, but the simple fact that a majority of them have significant injury histories doesn't make it smart to rely on them for an entire season.

At this point, the Redskins have to pray for luck regarding injuries. When healthy, this offense is top 10 in the league even with this offensive line (as they were to begin last season). When healthy...

"I agree with you on prematurely judging people. But you didnt need to reference Sean Taylor to make that point. The fact that you did, IMO reveals something about your character. And I never suggested he was a Saint. Im simply saying that there is no need to go that route in trying to make a point.

Moving on . . . . .

Honestly seems your being too touchy with it.

And great move to take a shot "shows something about your character" and then say "Moving on....".

I guess you're into judging people, too. I'll go ahead and judge you as a pompous, holier than thou ***hat along with that other guy. Can we never reference Sean Taylor unless we are speaking about what a great safety he was? It's a very relevant point that we as a fanbase were quick to forgive him for the things he did, and we never thought twice about it. Just like Ravens fans have forgiven Ray Lewis for the stuff he did. Just like we'll forgive Haynesworth for what he did, ruining a person's life.

The point is people make mistakes and can triumph over them and prove that their mistakes don't define them as people. Sean Taylor is a GREAT example of this, because he was an awesome person who made mistakes. None of this was ever an insult to him, it was praising him you idiot.

"Well. Dockery was replaced by a capable starter and we didn't miss a beat."

Kendall was a capable starter, yes. But he wasn't Dockery circa 2006, who garnered a record contract that following offseason. Dockery was playing near an elite level that season, and played a large role in Betts' one and only breakout season. So yes, we did miss a beat, just not enough to hurt the team significantly.

Regardless, we just have to hope Bugel brings out the old Dock this season.

Two questions:

1) Can he play?

2) Why haven't we signed Leroy Hill. We sign everybody else, and Hill actually plays a position of need.

Are we still talking about Cody Glenn...

I didnt want to get involved but here is the deal. When I was in college I was friends with a guy that was running back of a "big name" school... He was caught smoking pot by an RA. The team suspended him for a few games. The NCAA was never involved it was handled internally and to the general public it was disclosed as he "broke team rules"

I am sure there will be some here that would like to castrate a kid for smoking pot... but lets face it if you held pro ATHLETES to those standards there wouldnt be many

Khary Campbell has rejected the Skin's offer.

Backup linebacker Khary Campbell said Wednesday he won't return for a fifth season with the Washington Redskins after he rejected a minimum-salary deal. Campbell said he's negotiating with other teams but added it's not just about the money. The Redskins' top special teams tackler the past three years said he feels disrespected. "That wasn't something I was going to accept," the 30-year-old said. "And they drafted two linebackers. They did what they had to do, and I'm going to do what I have to do."

Khary Campbell might not even get on with another team.
