WFT Player Quotes: Ron Rivera is a guy that’s going to shoot it to you straight

Several Washington players talked to the media after today’s practice

NFL: Washington Football Team-Training Camp Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

We got to hear from Head Coach Ron Rivera and Offensive Coordinator Scott Turner, but a few Washington players also go their turn.

Kevin Pierre-Louis was listed as a starter on the team’s unofficial depth chart and is expected to play a big role in the defense this season. He said he has always tried to be physical and aggressive since he’s not the biggest LB. Practicing against RBs like J.D. McKissic and Antonio Gibson has been a blessing this year.

Logan Thomas is ready to begin his first NFL season as a starting TE, and says there are a whole lot of other playmakers on the team this year. It’s different this year with no preseason and COVID-19 protocols, but “football is football”. He noted that practice is different without Head Coach Ron Rivera there as a undergoes cancer treatment, but the veterans on the team keep the energy and tempo up.

No preseason:

Rookie safety Kamren Curl had one of the best camps on the team, and impressed a lot of people with his play, but it took him time to understand the scheme. Once he learned more, the game slowed down, and he was able to play faster. Curl continues the preseason praise of DBs Coach Chris Harris, and also the theme of versatility on the team. McLaurin is looking forward to lining up all over the field with Steven Sims Jr. and calls their skills a perfect marriage. F1 appreciates all the fantasy football love this year, and wants to make all the fantasy GMs happy.

Washington’s #1 WR finished up today’s player availability and said he’s confident in the new offense heading into Sunday’s season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles. He will get another opportunity to play against CB Darius Slay this week, and he’s looking forward to another fun matchup against him.
