Lincoln Kennedy to try out for Redskins?

Postby JPFair » Tue Aug 01, 2006 7:49 am

I wasn't at camp yetserday and I dont' think it was posted on THN, so I can't vouch for the veracity of the rumor. It looks like Lincoln Kennedy has been brought in to try out and compete for depth on the O-line. Could he be the 2006 version of Ray Brown? He's been out of the NFL for a few years so I don't know what kind of shape he's in, but if he's in good shape he could be a solid, experienced addition to the O-line that might be crucial for a late season run towards the playoffs.

Thoughts?

Apologies if I've been scooped.
Sit back and watch the Redskins.

That would be a fantastic pick up. He was a dominate player. I was listening to Mike and Mike this morning and they had John Clayton as a guest and one of the things that he said was teams are out looking for O-line depth. Lets be proactive rather then reactive.

Kennedy’s agent claims that the player is in good condition, carrying 385 pounds on his 6-7 frame.


:shock:

Wow... very interesting.

I hope he doesn't expect to start but it would be an interesting pick-up to say the least.

6'7'' 385??? What was his playing weight with the Raiders?


I bet he could play two O-line positions... at the same time.

We want him to at least 'want' to start. More motivation to have a guy out there pushing himself then just thinking "yeah I'll sit on my butt and collect this money!"

He played right tackle and his weight was listed at 335. He would have to use training camp to get into football shape. When he played for the Raiders he was considered one of leaders on the team, he was very smart, a hard worker and he was a good guy on and off the field.

The only motivation he needs is getting into playing shape. Starting is a pipe dream and not even worth discussing for someone who is years removed from the game and 50 lbs over his playing weight.
After every game, every play & every highlight, I'll always remember #21. RIP Sean.

Redskins? Parcells is on NFL Network and I believe its the Cowboys who are seeking him not the Skins. Unless fatgirl contacted the Skins on his own.


This is actually terriffic news! Pukes are still having oline troubles!

Looks like he's trying out for both. He must be suffering a negative cash flow and is in need of money, but he'll probably say something like "Football is my life and I want to contribute".
Sit back and watch the Redskins.

If he does -NOT-get the job, he might want to say at least a few good things on NFL Network! We never get a good word there. :evil:
