One random fact about these 8 new Redskins
Remember that incident before a 2014 Maryland-Penn State game where three Terps captains refused to shake hands with the Nittany Lions' captains at midfield?
Well, Stefon Diggs was the headliner of that controversy. Davis, however, was one of the other captains involved. Hopefully that doesn't make things too awkward between him and new teammate Troy Apke, a PSU product.
Davis was the 14th pick of the 2005 NFL Draft — and he's the only defensive player still active from that class. Talk about longevity.
Here are some bonus facts based off of that fact (don't worry, they're free): Alex Smith was the first pick in 2005, while the Redskins selected Carlos Rogers and Jason Campbell in the first round.
Fuller was the Maryland Gatorade Player of the Year as a senior at Good Counsel High School back in the early 2010s. That's a decent piece of hardware to pick up.
That season, he totaled 44 catches for nearly 700 yards and six touchdowns as a receiver and three interceptions on defense. What did you accomplish in your senior year of high school?
Pierre-Louis had what NFL Network described as an "outstanding" Combine in 2014, running a 4.51 40-yard dash as well as recording massive broad and vertical jumps for a linebacker.
That kind of athleticism has no doubt helped him in his rise as a terrific special-teamer, a role he'll surely be asked to continue in with the Redskins.
Lucas is a giant person. That's it. That's the fact.
Pro Football Reference lists him as 6-foot-8, and his Kansas State biography literally begins with the phrase "A mammoth offensive lineman that was a mainstay..." He certainly fits the physical profile of someone you'd want protecting your first-round QB.
If you were hoping to interact with Washington's newest running back, you're in luck, because he's on Cameo.
For just $20, the veteran will record a personalized message for you. He's apparently quite good at them, too, seeing as he's earned a five-star rating based on 28 reviews. You're welcome for those advanced stats.
While at San Jose State, Schweitzer majored in chemistry and studied things like cloning, genetics, immunology and a bunch of other topics that sound insanely confusing and challenging.
He finished his career as a four-time academic all-conference player, though, so it sure sounds like he figured out how to balance football and school effectively. Now, if only he could help clone Terry McLaurin...
Logan Thomas' first career receiving touchdown in the NFL came with the Bills in 2017 on a pass thrown by Tyrod Taylor. It wasn't the first time those two connected for six, though.
Weirdly enough, Taylor found Thomas for his lone college receiving score in 2010, too, when both were QBs at Virginia Tech. So, at this rate, expect them to notch their third TD together sometime in 2024.
