Mason/Brennan Preseason Hype! Awards: Who’s got the hype heading into week 2 of the Redskins preseason?

New, comments

Who shined in Week 1?

NFL: Washington Redskins at New England Patriots Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

The Mason/Brennan Preseason Hype! Award has been given out unofficially by the fans for years to each preseason's most hyped players, but now we've made it official, and will bring it to a vote.

This week's vote counts the hype heading into the Redskins preseason Week 2 game against the Jets. The two teams shared the practice field for the last three days that saw brawls and formers Redskins players getting punked. Place your vote for who you feel has been the most hyped player up to this point, whether the hype is deserved or not.

The Rules:

1. Player must have been drafted late or signed by the Redskins as an undrafted free agent. Players that have only been on other teams practice squads that are signed by the team are also eligible.

2. A player that has been on the team for several years is still eligible if most of that time has been spent on the practice squad, inactive, or with very limited productivity/time

How have past Mason/Brennan winners done in thr NFL after receiving this glorious award?

Offseason Mason/Brennan Winner: WR Trey Quinn (49%)

Quick list this (busy) week

The Candidates:

RB Byron Marshall

Derrius Guice's ACL on Thursday night was a huge blow to the Redskins. His loss opens up a spot for one of the guys fighting for a spot. Byron Marshall is BIGGER!, FASTER!, STRONGER! And Chris Thompson said he could learn a few thing from him.

RB Kapri Bibbs

Bibbs seems like the 5th man in a 4 man rotation, but he can make plays in the preseason that will change some minds, and make some fans.

CB Greg Stroman

The Stroman wasn’t getting much hype in training camp, but took the field last Thursday to get his name out there. Stroman returned punts and played the most snaps, earning PFF’s top grade on defense for the Redskins. With the release of Orlando Scandrick, the young bucks in the secondary are getting a major hype boost from Jay Gruden.

CB Danny Johnson

Hype monster! Danny Johnson has been that guy that people keep mentioning, but no one pays attention to until you see it with your own eyes. Johnson’s making a strong case for the Mason/Brennan this week, and the roster this year.

DB Adonis Alexander

Alexander has been injured, hasn’t done much of note in camp, and didn’t play against the Patriots. Has that stopped his hype, and Jay Gruden from mentioning him following the Scrandrick release? Absolutely not! You can’t spend a 6th round pick next year, and just give up on a physical specimen like Adonis can you?

WR Maurice Harris

He continues get hyped as the best WR in practice, training camp MVP, and a lock for the roster. Big Mo is pushing for the award again this week.

ILB Shaun Dion Hamilton

The late round steal who is the future captain of the Redskins defense made his debut against the Patriots. He led the team in tackles and defensive stops, and makes his case for the M/B crown.

WR Cam Sims

Cam Sims was just the big WR in camp until he started making plays vs the Patriots. With the unfortunate injury to Robert Davis, Sims hype is going to skyrocket through the rest of preseason.
