Glenn Declines to Say Why He Was Suspended

Rookie linebacker Cody Glenn, who lied to reporters about the reason for the three-game suspension he served during his senior season at Nebraska, said he regretted his actions but declined to reveal what prompted the disciplinary action.

"I can't really go into specifics. It's something to do with the University of Nebraska," the fifth-round draft pick said after practice today. "I regret the comment and that whole situation. Right now, I'm just trying to move on from that. I'm grateful for the opportunity that I've got here. I regret misleading anybody the wrong way."

In response to a reporter's question about the situation on a conference call after he was drafted last Sunday, Glenn, who was converted from running back to linebacker before his senior season with the Cornhuskers, said he was suspended for a ticket scandal. But two days later Glenn told an Associated Press reporter he made up the story "just trying to have people leave me alone." A source familiar with the situation said the suspension did stem from an incident involving tickets.

"I wish I would have" not lied, Glenn said. "It would have been a lot simpler now. It caused a lot of ruckus, which I regret right now, but it's time to move on."

Sounds like Skins got a real high character player here...definitely was worth not picking an O-lineman for this guy.

Dear Periculum,
You are a pretentious sh#*bag... I also believe that your real identidy is Jason La Canfora, who, by the way, fingered me at a Halloween party a few years back.

Well, I say give the guy a break. Its not like he only tips 15% or something horrible like that.


I hope he tells the dirt pickers its nonthere f'ing bidness next time.

Periculum...... You have been saying since this weekend that Orapko is too small to be an every down DE. Yet when someone like Dolemite refutes it with facts you just ignore them.

These are some of the following DE in the league, most of which are the sack leaders on their respective teams.
6-1 268 Dwight Freeney
6-4 263 John Abraham
6-5 258 Gaines Adams
6-6 270 Jared Allen
6-4 265 Aaron Kampman
6-4 243 Aaron Schobel
6-3 260 Darren Howard
6-3 260 Betrand Berry
Orakpo will be just fine at his size. Was Jason Taylor too light for what we do, yes. So stop with the Orakpo is a tweener nonsense.

Posted by: dolemite1 | April 26, 2009 10:03 PM | Report abuse

That list is hardly all of them either. Every 4-3 D employs a rush end and a run stopping end. Orapko is a prototypical rush end. He shouldn't be the run stopper at RDE but that doesn't mean he is not perfectly sized for a LDE. Whether he fails or not the irrefutable fact is that his body size is fine to play LDE. I have used way more specifics than you constantly showing examples of players with similar size/skill sets like Freeney, Mathis or Kiwanuka(who was pressed into service as a OLB cuz the Giants LB's sucked...sound Familiar?). You found one blog post saying that Haynesworth played DE on some passing downs(that was a vague comment) and are now proclaiming that we will utilize the first ever 3 DT pass rush. You also say I am wrong about Orapko cuz they lined him up at SLB today, the very first day of minicamp. If you wanna try the guy out at OLB, a position he's never played before would you have him practice with the DE's? You gotta line him up at LB initially to see if he can actually do it. Also by your logic we should have seen that vaunted three DT - 1 DE line-up instead of the Carter, Haynesworth, Griffin, Daniels line up they started with today and has been reported about since we got Haynesworth. Who knows maybe Orapko is the next great thing at LB(I doubt it since he has no ability to cover anyone). Also Casserly was talking about Orapko being too small to be the RDE which is true not being an everydown LDE. Where is your proof? A vague interview comment that you have tried to make seem more significant that it is, the weakness section of a scouting report saying the rush end isn't a tremendous run-stopper?

Hate to be negative, but if Kelly is already having microfracture surgery then after he heals which is a slow process, most likely he will be in and out of the line up for years to come. This is the operation which Terrell Davis had, Traci Mcgrady, Reggie Bush, and Odom. Not a good surgery to have for a young WR. I fault the Redskins medical staff and Vinny now for this selection. Not a second round pick with that arthritic/damaged knee.

Okay, at this point you HAVE to wonder what the hell this kid did to get suspended. First he lies about it, and now he's evasive... what on earth is he hiding?

I don't want to hear anyone act like this is a story manufactured by the media. This kid did something wrong, and then he doubled down by lying about it, and now he's making it worse with this evasiveness... and still it's entirely in his power to resolve it,

Tell the truth and move on. How hard is that? What a doofus.

Wouldn't say he will be a beast, but he could develop into a starter in a couple of years. Randy Moss frame with good speed. Doesn't run good routes and lacks quickness out of his breaks. Decent hands.

Posted by: all_star_0013 | May 1, 2009 8:15 PM | Report abuse

Also you pulled that quote "Lacks ideal base and will occasionally struggle when teams run at him. Bigger OT's can move him if they get into his body. However, he is an effective run stopper when he stays on the move. Much improved in this area. Does a good job of using his strong arms and quick hands to keep blockers off his pads temporarily. Shows awareness and is a strong tackler." from the ESPN scouting report section that was solely grading him as a run stopping DE(not what they drafted him for). Despite that they still graded him as an above average run stopper. If we had drafted him to plug him in at RDE and have him try to be a run stopper I would agree with you but that is a completely different position than Rush end.

He is 22 yrs old and he will never be a run stuffer. Is Dwight Frenney a run stuffer? He even admited to needing to work on his run defense and he will get much better. This is why Blatche is going to use him @ OLB on run downs and then let him either free lance or put his hand in the ground @ DE onn passing downs. Blatche knows what he is doing which is more than we can say for our FO.

People need to get over this waste of a 5th rd pick. He will not be on the 53 man roster. He has an outside shot @ the practice squad. Henson makes the team instead.

Now that they have banned the wedge on special teams and Rock runs a 5.0 40 we are in need of a playmaker @ KR. Rock always gets what is there...nothing less and definitely nothing more. Hopefully the kid from Canada can step into the position.

Orakpo will weigh over 270 by the start of next season once daniels gets to him.

Posted by: peteywheatstraw | May 1, 2009 8:55 PM | Report abuse

Who cares about Glenn?

Raks weight should not be an issue although slb isn't a bad idea to try out. He can gain weight too if that's the issue but I doubt it will be.

Hope Malcolm can get himself ready.

Marko? Hope this beast talk is right but a bit premature. Randy moss build does not equal randy moss. Hope he can develop on the practice squad.

I hope ARE ends up the #4. He's not the 2 on a potent offense.

What? The DE rush usually comes from the right, around the left offensive tackle. Teams like to run to their right.

Why does he need to weigh 270? He's already as strong as an ox. More weight would just slow him down.

The pass rush is about speed, not size. As long as you're fast and strong, you can rush the passer.

Marko's a seventh round choice. Any production from him in the first year would be pure gravy. Usually a 7th round WR doesn't get in games outside of special teams.

This numbering of wide receivers has gotten out of hand. THere's no position called '#1' WR. Just a shorthand way of referring to the guy the offense wants to feature, usually because of his talent.

So Larry Fitzgerald may be the league's best at the moment, but that doesn't mean he's always the first option on a given play.

Okay, I've read lots of Nebraska blogs & news reports. One thing is clear: Cody Glenn just seemed beloved by the Cornhusker faithful. Selfless, played with great intensity & was a standup guy up until this point. There was no criminal report filed against him at the time & none has been filed since. Chances are good that there is a reason nothing is being disclosed. If it was just a matter of him doing something wrong that didn't involve anyone else, then more problems are arising by no one admitting what happened. Therefore, by being silent, no one who knows the reason is protecting him they are only hurting him.

What reasons usually preclude leaks in most cases?? My money isn't on protecting his reputation or image. Its on protecting somebody elses. If that's the case, he's never going to tell because of that so leave the dude alone and let him move forward.

I love how some Bozos rip the Media for covering the Cody Glenn incident, then can't shut up about it themselves.

The Media, by and large doesn't cover stories just to amuse itself. It covers stories the public wants.

So, F the media? Nah, f the Enablers.

Where are the Redskin PR people in this? If they weren't so busy writing RI to say how awful FLC is, maybe they could cook up a PR strategy that would get this kid's story out, and him out of the spotlight. That's how it works in PR, and this is what this is all about.

The Media really doesnt' care what this kid did to get suspended. But what they DO care about is he refuses to talk about it.

This is the wrong place for "moving on." This is Redskin Insider. We move on when we feel like it, not when you feel like it. There's a long line ahead of you, newbie.

We still have to move on from: Lavar Arrington, Antonio Pierce, Brandon Lloyd, Ryan Clark, Adam Archuleta, Malcolm Kelly, Justin Tryon, Durant Brooks, Marcus Mason, Leigh Torrence, plus a few others I can't think of right now.

Once we move on from them, it might be your turn. Unless someone cuts in ahead of you, of course.

Posted by: talent_evaluator | May 2, 2009 10:35 AM | Report abuse

Our offensive line is still pretty scary. The only good thing about it is that our defense should actually have a real pass rush this year, which campbell will have to practice against every day. Last season in practice he probably had about 4 to 5 seconds to get rid of the ball; this season he should be lucky to have 3 seconds in practice, which could translate to quicker reads/releases in the actual games.......hopefully.
