Actually, it was a husband swap. The wives each stayed with their kids and dogs and houses and stuff. It was Yankees pitchers Fritz Peterson and Mike Kekich who were truly exchanged. This, the most 1970s story in all of baseball, was announced forty years ago this spring. The Palm Beach Post caught up with…
Just a week into his Redskins tenure, new CB Josh Norman is enjoying the D.C. life, attending in the White House Correspondent's Dinner.
Norman came to the 'Skins with much fanfare; an unusual release from a franchise tag in Carolina made him a free agent and Washington swooped in quickly. Norman signed a massive five-year, $75 million contract, and is expected to start at cornerback this fall opposite Bashaud Breeland.
Just hours before donning his tuxedo and heading downtown, Norman was spotted at FedEx Field meeting Redskins rookies Josh Doctson, Su'a Cravens and Kendall Fuller.
It's been a busy day for Norman, and depending what you hear about #NerdProm, the night is just getting started.
It took them their entire draft but the Redskins finally got a running back on their roster. They took Keith Marshall of Georgia with their seventh-round pick (No. 242 overall).
Marshall, 5-11 and 219 pounds, was supposed to be the Bulldogs’ next great back, but due to injuries and the emergence of Nick Chubb he never really got the chance.
He is the fastest player in the draft, if you go by his combine 40 times. He ran 4.31 in Indianapolis, the fastest time recorded this year.
Marshall will line up behind Matt Jones and probably Chris Thompson on the Redskins’ running back depth chart. He will get a chance to earn snaps on third down and possibly as a rotational back teaming with Jones.
The Redskins added Boston College inside linebacker Steven Daniels with the first of their two seventh round draft picks.
Daniels, 5-11 and 243 pounds, has been a starter for the Eagles for the past three years. Although he doesn’t have ideal height, he is solid at 243 pounds and opposing running backs will tell you he hits like a ton of bricks.
He joins an inside linebacker group that includes Will Compton, Perry Riley, Mason Foster, and Martrell Spaight. His immediate niche will be on special teams and that will be his pathway to gaining a spot on the 53-man roster.
