One-on-one with Clint Didier

New, comments

The former Washington Redskins tight end and two-time Super Bowl champion took some time out to chat with our friends Mike Harar, Marc Shea and Chris LeSage from The District about his old team and reflect on some of his best memories in the NFL.

Richard Mackson-US PRESSWIRE

Clint Didier played with the Redskins from 1982-1987, and during that time he collected 129 catches for 1,815 yards and 19 touchdowns.  He also played in three Super Bowls, two of which his team won, and played a key role in the victories while managing to fly somewhat under the radar as a guy who spent a lot of time in the trenches.  Clint was nice enough to take time away from his schedule while running for Congress in his home state of Washington to be our first guest on the new podcast, The District (a production of 1st Amendment Sports).  He discussed and broke down, in awesome detail, his contribution to the 43-yard touchdown run John Riggins had in Super Bowl XVII and the touchdown reception he had from quarterback Doug Williams in Super Bowl XXII.  Among other items, he explains whether or not he ever officially became a member of the Hogs, how he feels about the Jay Gruden hiring, and also answers the question of whether it's harder to run for Congress, or go through a Joe Gibbs-led training camp in the sweltering heat in Carlisle, PA.  Thanks again to Clint for talking Redskins with us and giving some really cool insight.  Also, look for more from The District and 1st Amendment Sports coming very soon.  Enjoy!
