Quan Sturdivant - LB - Redskins

Redskins signed LB Quan Sturdivant.

Sturdivant (6'1/241) has spent time on the practice squads of the Cardinals and Chiefs since going in the sixth round of the 2011 draft. He'll be a camp body as the Redskins deal with nagging injuries at inside linebacker.

Aug 15 - 10:34 AM

Any idea how a guy like this is compensated? Does he get paid for every day he's in camp? How about preseason game checks?

Scouting Report:

Do-it-all linebacker Quan Sturdivant did not spend any time learning on the sidelines at North Carolina. As a true freshman he played in all 12 games and earned five starts, tallying 47 tackles, 1.5 tackles-for-loss, one sack, one interception and even blocked a punt. That set the stage for his breakout sophomore campaign. In 2008 Sturdivant started every game and led the team with an incredible 122 tackles, including an NCAA FBS high 87 unassisted tackles.

For the 2009 season Sturdivant moved to the middle of the linebacker corps and his leadership has led to a stifling Tar Heel defense. He was not asked to do as much as far as tackling is concerned from his new position thanks to an improving defense around him, but he still led the team with 75 tackles during the regular season and did a great job getting into the backfield, totaling 12.0 tackles-for-loss, one sack and six quarterback hurries. Sturdivant has turned into a leader during the 2010 campaign after many of the other stars on defense have been suspended. However, a hamstring injury has limited him to just three games so far this year.

What makes Sturdivant so valuable is his versatility. He can play any linebacker position, and once he is there he can do everything one would want a linebacker to do. He can obviously use his 6-2, 235 pound frame to fight his way into the backfield, but he is also more than capable of dropping back into coverage.

2/8 Update: Sturdivant came back strong at the end of his senior season. Despite missing time with the hamstring injury, the linebacker finished third on the team in tackles. He even wrapped up his collegiate career by picking off a pass on his last play on the field. The result was a 30-27 double overtime victory for the Tar Heels over Tennessee in the Music City Bowl.

He may be more than a camp body. I see this as a no confidence vote on Kehl & McKulroy.

I was thinking more Muckelroy, and the fact Barnett isn't a 100%

Didn't we just have a guy from App State tear a pec muscle last week? This is just another body.

Usually, with money.

Seriously .. he may have gotten a tiny bonus. Do we give him a daily stipend and a weekly check? Is his salary divided by 20 and doled out on game days? I'm curious.

It's probably a one year contract with no guarantee, paid weekly. May be a small bonus to start him with some pocket money...









OTOH... I have no idea what I'm talking about.
