Jay Gruden Presser: Jeremy Sprinkle is going to be around for a long time

Jay Gruden anseers questions after ther last day of training camp

NFL: Washington Redskins-Training Camp Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Evaluating players in camp:

Fabian Moreau:

“The jury’s still out. You know, he’s still learning. We’ve got to see how he’s picked up the system, but he looks fine. You know, he’s exactly what we thought as far as his height, weight, speed measurables are concerned. He looks the part. He can run. Now it’s just a matter of him adjusting to the scheme and the techniques that we’re teaching.”

Kirk Cousins to Terrelle Pryor Sr.:

Jeremy Sprinkle:

“I like Sprinkle a lot, man. He’s got long arms, he’s strong and I think he’s going to be a Y tight end in this league for a very long time. He’s going to get stronger and stronger every year and he’s got very good hands. He’s got deceptive speed, but you really like him as an in-line blocker. In the passing game, he’s got very good hands and he’s very good after the catch. Like I said, I’ve been impressed with Jeremy.”

Josh Doctson:

Robert Davis:

Rob Kelley:

“He’s not going to ever be a feature wide receiver but he’s functional out of the backfield. We can throw him check-downs and all that stuff. Probably won’t win on many choice routes, but he does have a role. When we do our drop-back passing game and he gets out and they all panic drop back there, he catches flat routes. He’s got hands that are functional. He’s got good hands.”

Matt Ioannidis:

“Yeah, that’s another one. Matt’s done a great job, really. He’s gotten a lot stronger in the weight room. It’s kind of what I was hoping. Getting him out of Temple, he’s just a big, strong guy. He works hard in the weight room. It’s led by Ziggy Hood. He’s a great example for those guys, those young guys, with his work habits in the weight room. He takes them all under his wing and Matt’s one of those guys that’s just gotten so much stronger. He gets great push in the pocket and he’s playing good against the run, so I’ve been impressed with Matt.”
