WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — The Washington Redskins were one of 19 teams to inquire about former Alabama A&M linebacker Larry Lumpkin, who has made himself available for Thursday’s supplemental NFL draft.
His addition, whether to Washington or any franchise, could bring with it significant baggage.
Lumpkin played his first two NCAA seasons with Alabama A&M before transferring to Carson-Newman College, a Division II school in Tennessee. He was a standout defensive player last season at the smaller school, but has since been ruled ineligible to play in 2012.
“Larry was a playmaker for us, but he had a lot of issues,” said Jay Martin, A&M linebackers coach, per Reggie Benson of The Huntsville Times. “He was constantly late for meetings and he would miss practice at least one day a week.
“He was very undisciplined. He would have helped us, but he didn’t want to be here.”
The Baltimore Ravens, Kansas Chiefs, Indianapolis Colts, Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, St. Louis Rams, Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos, New Orleans Saints, Chicago Bears, Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, Green Bay Packers, Arizona Cardinals, Oakland Raiders, Carolina Panthers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Houston Texans have also inquired about Lumpkin according to Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times.
What do you think? Should the Redskins make a play for Lumpkin?
