Recognize this guy?Photo Credit: thesportsquotient.com It’s clearly downtime during the NFL season, with the season rapidly approaching, and a reporter decided to have a little fun with the Washington Redskins. Kevin Jones of wusa9 decided to bring a picture of Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper to practice, and give a little pop quiz to the team. The results? Pure comedy. Alfred Morris – “Is that Tom Brady?” Rob Jackson – “I have no idea.” I tell him Bryce Harper. “I haven’t heard that name.” Roy Helu – “Harper? Matt Harper?” Chris Neild – “I should know this. I’m a big Yankees fan.” Those were a few of my personal favorites, but there are a few more you should check out in the piece. As Jones notes, there were a few guys, like Jarvis Jenkins, who nailed it, but those aren’t nearly as fun to think about. Maybe someone should take a picture of New York Mets phenom Matt Harvey to Jets and Giants camps; maybe the players will do better than other New Yorkers. By: Frank Santos- Sports-Kings Co-Founder

It was after the Nationals last game played that Bryce Harper told his teammates it was time to ride. Tonight, Harper responded with a ballgame. The Nationals won the game 4-1 in Milwaukee, and Harper deposited a ball in the second deck off my former teammate’s teammate Burke Badenhop. The home run was Harper’s 16th of the season – which you figure if he gets extremely hot...

Redskins Training Camp Report

In late July and early August of last year, the Washington Redskins’ energy was that of excitement and anticipation of future potential.

Amendola, Brady make a connection

Coach Bill Belichick changed things up a bit yesterday by having his Patriots scrimmage. The stars of the day? Tom Brady and Danny Amendola. The quarterback and wide receiver only played what amounted to one series and change. But that’s all they needed and it almost wasn’t fair to their teammates. Brady and Amendola looked like they had been working together for years as opposed...

Julian Edelman’s Return to Patriots’ Practice Gives Tom Brady More Security in Slow-Developing Passing Game

FOXBORO, Mass. — Julian Edelman trotted out onto the practice field at Gillette Stadium with his teammates in full pads, which must have been a welcome sight for Tom Brady. With an entirely new group of wide receivers on the roster, Brady has enjoyed some highs and suffered through some lows so far in training camp. So, Edelman’s return to the fold should ease some of the pressure...
