    Redskins to sign Adrian Peterson per NFL.com

    Please fire that dumb ass named Jay Gruden and the entire incompetent coaching staff, besides Jim Tomsula. I hear how great the oline coach is, but the oline commits more penalties than I've ever seen. Horrendous coaches, instill some f'ing DISCIPLINE into this team. We need a Bill Cowher type of head coach and we need him now! https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/sep/8/adrian-peterson-decision-could-haunt-gruden/ https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/09/09/morgan-moses-on-ap-not-dressing-its-a-slap-in-the-face/amp/

  3. https://www.nbcsports.com/washington/redskins/position-battles-montez-sweat-locks-starting-spot-what-about-cole-holcomb On the defensive side of the ball, Montez Sweat actually has a chance to be the best Redskins rookie in 2019 despite being Washington's second first-round pick. A freak athlete with a strong track record of production in the SEC at Mississippi State, Sweat looks like the instant starter at outside linebacker opposite Ryan Kerrigan. Third-year pro Ryan Anderson could and likely will push Sweat for competition, but the rookie's speed should prove the difference. Not only does Sweat look like an immediate starter, but he also looks like he could be a contender for Defensive Rookie of the Year. The talent is that real.

If Monday's session was any indication, Allen thinks Sweat will fit in with the unit just fine. "I like him. I like him a lot," Allen said. "All I know is that he is big, tall, long, and he works. That’s all that matters." "Getting better each and every day, reaching the highest ceiling I can get to," Sweat said. "Who knows how good I will be."
  5. https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/mississippi-state-football/montez-sweat-washington-redskins/amp/ By the sounds of it, Montez Sweat has made an immediate impression on his new Washington teammates. The 16th overall selection in the 2019 NFL Draft out of Mississippi State is currently going through his first camp with the Redskins and already he’s being compared to one of the best players in recent NFL history — at least physically. Washington’s veteran linebacker Ryan Kerrigan was a recent guest on the John Keim Report and when asked about Sweat, the longtime Redskin defender could not hide his excitement when discussing how impressed he was when he first met the team’s rookie defender. Here is what Kerrigan had to say when Keim asked him to share his initial impression of Sweat. “Just his size, he’s an imposing dude. I mean, the one person that came to mind – and this isn’t a playing thing, but like, Julius Peppers,” Kerrigan said on the show. “I remember meeting Julius Peppers and seeing how big he was in person. I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, that dude is big!’ That was kinda my first impression of (Sweat), in terms of size. And then to know how fast and athletic he is too, it’s pretty remarkable. “One thing I respect about him too, he has the production to match. You see a lot of guys that get drafted and you see their clips and you are like, ‘Oh, you only had a couple of sacks in his career? Why is he getting picked so high?’ Montez has the production to match his freakish athletic ability, which I think is key.” Kerrigan has certainly done his homework on the former Bulldog as Sweat was a revelation for the Mississippi State defense in recent seasons. In just two seasons on the field, Sweat registered 30 tackles for loss and 22.5 sacks with 101 overall tackles. If he comes close to matching that level of production early during his first two seasons in Washington, the next rookie sensation coming into the league may get compared to Sweat instead of soon-to-be Hall of Famer Julius Peppers.
  6. Https:// www.nbcsports.com/washington/redskins/redskins-depth-chart-only-argument-defensive-line-who-best Tim Settle, a second-year pro out of Virginia Tech, got to spend the last year in an NFL weight program. He's looked much stronger when spotted walking the halls in Ashburn, and that could get him on the field more this fall. Ask some of the Redskins defensive coaches, and they'll talk at length about third-year man Caleb Brantley. An early season addition last year, Brantley didn't play much for Washington in 2018, though he showed promise in Cleveland as a rookie. Settle and Brantley got drafted later than many expected, and with the time invested in the weight room and tutelage from defensive line coach Jim Tomsula, it wouldn't be crazy to see development on the same scale as Ioannidis. He went from a late round rookie to a significant contributor, and inside the walls at Redskins Park, folks think the same could happen with Brantley or Settle. Maybe both.
  7. https://www.clarionledger.com/story/sports/college/mississippi-state/2019/03/28/nfl-draft-montez-sweat-nashville-prospect-mel-kiper-combine-pro-day-projections-espn-football-picks/3289226002/ Sweat could've decided to take it easy after the combine. He's a surefire first-round pick at this point, and giving scouts more glimpses at MSU's Pro Day could have done more harm than good. Scouts from all 32 NFL teams were in attendance Wednesday, watching his every move. Yet he still showed up and went through position drills in Starkville one month before the draft. For Sweat, the process of becoming a professional football player isn't complete until Goodell calls his name next month. “I've still got everything to prove," Sweat said. "I talk about creating my own path, my own destiny. I’m not like all those other guys who sit out drills and stuff like that. I’m here to compete.” Immediately after the combine, Sweat went to Atlanta to work with his pass-rushing coach, Chuck Smith. Smith played college football at Tennessee before spending nearly 10 seasons in the NFL. Since retiring from the league, Smith has worked with some of the best defensive linemen in today's game, including the Denver Broncos' Von Miller. Miller said he already felt like the "Michael Jordan of pass rushing" when he first heard of Smith. Smith told him he'd be his Phil Jackson. Since then, Smith has helped Miller become even more of a well-rounded pass-rusher. "For guys who don't have moves, Chuck can teach them moves," Miller said. https://www.google.com/amp/www.espn.com/nfl/draft2019/story/_/id/26432393/how-montez-sweat-team-molded-freak-elite-prospect%3fplatform=amp Honing his pass-rushing skills It's not just about the measurables -- Sweat wants to refine his pass-rushing skills, too. Former LSU standout DE Arden Key (now with the Raiders) referred Sweat to pass-rushing coach Chuck Smith of in Atlanta. Sweat has been meeting with Smith since the summer of 2017. Sweat is from the Atlanta area, so he works with Smith two or three times a week when he's in town. Smith has been working to improve his hand placement and movement. Like Callaway, Smith loves Sweat's work ethic. He also thinks Sweat asks good questions and takes coaching well. His voice lit up when he described some of the things they are working on -- including a new addition to Sweat's pass-rushing repertoire. "We worked on something called the 'long-arm ghost.' It's a move that Von Miller kind of invented. You use the long arm, then go to the ghost. First you long-arm the guy, then you fake like you're going to long arm him and bend underneath. We added that so he's coming into the league with an arsenal. He's going to be one not to mess with in his rookie year." The long-arm move is natural for Sweat thanks to his 35-plus-inch arms. A defensive lineman's length can be a plus on the field, but offensive lineman can also use it against them. "Staying low is very important," Sweat said. "The biggest thing you can give an O-linemen is your chest and upper body. It's easy for a tall guy to come out of his stance and be tall because that's what he's comfortable doing. You have to keep repping, staying low out of your stance." After a nine-year career as a defensive end with the Falcons and Panthers, Smith knows what it takes to be a successful pass-rusher and believes Sweat has it. "Tez is going to outrun guys, and he's only getting better. He's still learning. Tez uses his moves, and he's the prototype -- tall and shredded. I think Tez is going to be a great NFL player." https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.clarionledger.com/amp/3539451002 Sweat emerged as one of the top pass-rushing threats in the country while at State. His record-breaking performance at the NFL Scouting Combine earlier this year further cemented his potential. Sweat clocked in at 4.41 seconds in the 40-yard dash, which set the record for the fastest time ever by a defensive end. At 6-foot-6 and 245 pounds, Sweat was a matchup nightmare for even the best offensive linemen in the Southeastern Conference. The NFL is a different animal, but with proper guidance and training Sweat could become one of the most formidable edge rushers in the league.
  8. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/05/12/jay-gruden-has-no-doubt-montez-sweat-will-play-a-lot-this-year/amp/ At least one of the teams that removed him from the board for health reasons nevertheless regarded him as the best pass rusher in the draft. Sweat’s speed had something to do with that assessment. “He’s just fast,” Gruden said of the guy who ran a 4.41-second 40-yard dash at the Scouting Combine. “He’s fast. He eats up ground when he runs. It’s like three strides and he’s all the way across the field and it’s crazy.” It’s not crazy to think of the kind of steal Washington will have gotten — and some teams may end up thinking it was crazy to take him off the board — if the heart condition detected at the Scouting Combine ends up being a non-issue.
  9. DE Montez Sweat, Mississippi State Sweat came into this week with a buzz and given the depth of edge rushers and defensive linemen, that’s saying something. In person, Sweat is a pretty massive figure. He stands at 6’6 and weighs 245, all distributed in the prototypical defensive end way. He carries himself like an NFL player already according to Mississippi State personnel. He works out like a pro, he’s around the facility like one, essentially he’s already all business. On the field, he showcased a great bend off the edge and a great get off. His athletic ability is apparent and his complementary work ethic should make him extremely successful at the next level. A two-way player, he played tight end in addition to defensive end in high school and was ranked as one of the top recruits at the tight end position nationally as he entered college. On top of that, he played basketball, so his athletic ability is unparalleled. He started his collegiate career at Michigan State before transferring and spending a year in junior college and then getting to Mississippi State from there. He led the SEC in sacks as a junior in 2017 and was named a first-team All-American by three different outlets in his senior season after recording 11.5 sacks, which was good for seventh-best in Mississippi State history in a single season.

  11. He reminds me of another #90 that used to play for the Panthers. Peppers used to run sprints with the DB's in practice because he was so fast.
  12. Supposedly that's his brother DeMarcus Sweat, he played as a wide receiver for Kentucky.
