Redskins send plane full of supplies to the Bahamas following Hurricane Dorian

Redskins send plane full of supplies to the Bahamas following Hurricane Dorian

Earlier this month, the Bahamas were devastated by Hurricane Dorian, leaving much of the country destroyed and in need of help. 

On Thursday, the Redskins sent a plane full of supplies, food, and other items to Nassau, the capital of the island, according to Redskins.com.

Safety Adonis Alexander, whose father was born on the island, traveled on the plane to personally deliver the goods.

"This is the only team I've seen doing it," Alexander told Redskins.com. "So, it's just a blessing. I feel like it's a great look for the organization; they're taking care of people in need, not just us."

Dorian, identified as a Category 5 hurricane (the highest a hurricane can get), made landfall on the Bahamas earlier this month. The death total has reached 50, with over 15,000 in need of food and water, according to Redskins.com.

Who is Redskins safety Montae Nicholson?

Redskins safety Montae Nicholson is in the news this week for a tragic off-the-field reason: He, according to a report, is cooperating with investigators looking into the possible drug overdose death of a 21-year-old woman.

So who is Nicholson? Here's a quick summary of his football career (which obviously is not related to the 21-year-old woman's death, other than it's why his name is in the headlines this week): 

He was drafted out of Michigan State by the Redskins in the fourth round of the 2017 draft. More on his rookie year from an earlier report from NBC Sports Washington's JP Finlay: 

As a rookie in 2017, Nicholson was often available to the media and seen as a fun part of the secondary group. A November concussion changed that, understandably, and Nicholson finished his rookie season on the injured reserve. His second season started with promise but went sideways, and from the surface, the safety never seemed as comfortable as he had early in his rookie season.

 Nicholson has started seven games this season, grabbing two interceptions and 25 tackles. He was also in the news earlier this year, when assault charges against him were dropped due to a lack of evidence.

Nicholson, according to the report, has not been charged in the latest off-the-field incident and is reported to be cooperating with authorities in the tragic investigation.
