WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - Since signing with the Arizona Cardinals, former Redskin Lorenzo Alexander has been preparing for the upcoming NFL season away from D.C. and says it’s not easy transitioning out of his comfort zone.
“Anytime you’ve been anywhere for a long period of time and you’ve built a lot of great relationships, it’s hard to leave because these are people you care about,” Alexander told 106.7 The Fan’s Lavar and Dukes on Tuesday. “I’m out here away from my wife and kids, so it’s a lot of different emotions going into it.”
Lorenzo says it’s strange to be the elder statesmen in a linebacking corps when he’s been in more of an apprentice role in Washington for so long.
“It’s actually kind of funny, because now I’m actually the old man in the linebacker room. I’m going in year nine, and I think most guys are five years in,” he said. “So I’m bringing some of my knowledge of the game and some of the things I’ve learned from like London Fletcher, and trying to just pass that along to the next guy.”
Lorenzo had one and one tip only for his new team to game plan best against Robert Griffin III.
