Top WR prospect DK Metcalf really, really likes Jay Gruden

Top WR prospect DK Metcalf really, really likes Jay Gruden

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden got quite the compliment from Ole Miss WR DK Metcalf after a successful meeting earlier this week. 

“He’s a perfectionist,” Metcalf said of Gruden. 

A likely first-round draft pick, Metcalf explained that his formal interview with the Redskins was his best so far during the NFL Scouting Combine. He said that Gruden showed him how to be cleaner in his breaks on receiving routes. 

The high praise comes as the Redskins might be in the wide receiver market during the draft. 

The team got poor production from the position in 2018, with no wideout bringing in more than two touchdowns or registering more than 45 receptions on the season. 

Metcalf made a stir during the pre-draft process when a picture emerged via social media of his size and stature. He’s an aggressive weight lifter that has less than 2 percent body fat. 

When he wasn’t speaking highly of the Redskins, Metcalf was almost in an awkward position where he had to defend his size. 

Asked if he was surprised by the questions about his size, Metcalf said simply, “yes.”

    Washington's NFL team hires DC attorney who'll reportedly 'conduct a deep dive' into past culture

    Washington's NFL team has hired an attorney to "conduct a deep dive" into its own culture, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

    That culture has come under serious scrutiny over the past few days. Here are the full details from Schefter, which he tweeted about on Thursday afternoon:

    Wilkinson's hiring is just the latest development in what's become a very tense stretch for Dan Snyder's franchise. 

    Monday's announcement that the team would be retiring its previous name and logo has since been overshadowed by talk of a looming Washington Post story that's expected to uncover some serious issues within the organization.

    The story, however, has yet to be released, despite the building rumors about its contents. The delay has been attributed to the need for lawyers to get involved, and now, that's obviously happening.

    Last weekend, two front office executives, Alex Santos and Richard Mann II, were let go. Then, on Wednesday, longtime radio play-by-play man Larry Michael retired from his position.
