Assuming many Washington Redskins fans are also supporters of the Washington Nationals, it’s probably safe to assume that many — if not most — of them would be able to identify Bryce Harper. The 20-year-old outfielder is the future of the Nationals franchise and one of the best young players in the game, but many of the Redskins players have apparently ignored his Under Armour ads.

According to Kevin Jones of WUSA 9, several Redskins players were unable to identify Harper when shown a picture of him (without his uniform on, of course) during training camp recently. Guys like running back Roy Helu, linebacker Rob Jackson, receivers Aldrick Robinson, Devery Henderson, Leonard Hankerson and others literally had no idea who Harper was. But running back Alfred Morris had the funniest reaction.

“Is that Tom Brady?” Morris asked when shown the picture.

The hair may be similar, but there’s no way an NFL player would not know that a person he was looking at isn’t Brady, right?

Linebacker Brandon Jenkins, who was close to being able to identify Harper, also had an entertaining response.

“Oh that’s the dude that was in the home run derby!” he said. “What’s his name?”

Some of the Redskins, including Pierre Garcon, Logan Paulsen and Jarvis Jenkins, were up on their local baseball knowledge and knew it was Bryce. The others must just be focusing harder on football. Yeah, we’ll go with that.

Pete Rose: Bryce Harper plays recklessly

Bryce Harper has yet to play two full seasons with the Washington Nationals, but he has already been injured several times.

Assuming the Nationals do not make the postseason this year, (which realistically...

Redskins players cannot identify Bryce Harper

Besides Robert Griffin III, the biggest, most well-known athlete in the Washington D.C. area has to be Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper, right?

'Al Fred' Morris is Redskins' 2nd banana to RG3
