Jeremy Jarmon Is Not One For Coulda-Beens

Posted by Matt Terl on April 21, 2010 – 4:23 pm

If things had gone differently, this would be a nerve-wracking couple of days in Jeremy Jarmon‘s life. If things had gone as planned, Jarmon would be one of those guys zooming up and down mock draft boards. He would’ve been poked and prodded at the NFL Scouting Combine,stared at during a Pro Day or private workout, and wined and dined at practice facilities across the league.

Instead, an over-the-counter weight-loss supplement cost him his final year of college eligibility and he was selected by the Redskins in the supplemental draft last year at the cost of this year’s third round pick. He appeared in eleven games, accounted for eight tackles and one forced fumble, and suffered a season-ending knee injury in a November game against the Eagles.

Which is why, instead of spending today with family or friends or an agent, waiting to find out where his professional career would begin, Jarmon spent it the way he has most of the last several months: coming into the facility to rehab from his injury, working to resume a career that’s already begun.

So far, the efforts seem to be going well. The training staff tells him that he’s ahead of schedule, especially in the mental aspects of recovery; Jarmon says that head athletic trainer Larry Hess told him that “he’s never had someone that ran without any hesitation from day 1. When I started running I just jumped right back into it, and in my honest opinion I felt like I had never stopped running.”

Which figures. Jarmon used crutches less after his surgery than any player I’ve seen, and his response to the injury seemed to be anger more than anything else. “I don’t like depending on other factors to help me out,” Jarmon says. “I used [the crutches] to the point where I felt that I could do it myself.”

Jarmon spent the past weekend’s minicamp doing ladder drills and straight-ahead running and a lot of watching and learning, but expects to have more restrictions lifted soon. And he expects to be back full-go by training camp at the latest, possibly the final minicamp.

So he’s got plenty of things to keep him busy, but that doesn’t mean he’s completely unaware of what could’ve been.
