Good Things Come In Trios

The Three Musketeers.  The Genie’s three wishes.  The Three Stooges.  The John Mayer Trio.  Okay,  not the last one, but typically good things do come in three’s, and there”s no exception with the Redskins rookie wide receivers.  Leonard Hankerson, Niles Paul, and Aldrick Robinson have a chance to be impact players for the Redskins, and today, for the first time ever, they were in the same room together.

There was no time to pose for commemorative pictures though.  Too much work to be done.

“This was our first day together, and we were learning the system,” Paul said.  “So we were trying to concentrate on that and not bonding.  I talked to Hank the last time I was here [for the player workouts] and I just met Aldrick.”

Robinson agreed, adding: “This was me and Niles’s first time meeting each other.  The first time we had a workout, he came, and the second I came.  We both talked to Hank before this.”

The trio spent most of the afternoon in meetings with the coaching staff, getting a crash course on the Redskins playbook.  Both wide receivers coach Keenan McCardell and special teams coach Danny Smith took a keen interest in these guys as they came out of the meeting rooms.  \

If they get up to speed, all three could factor into different aspects of the passing games and should be a consideration for special teams.  If they don’t catch on fast, the Redskins are covering their bases.

    The last trio worth remembering was probably # 84, 81, 83 (Clark, Monk, Sanders). Let’s hope they all make the roster.

    No disrespect to Fred Davis and Malcolm Kelly since they are still here competing.
    But I must say to Malcolm that this is your time to really grab a roster spot and I hope you get it cause I think you can be dominant. But please show us fans that you want it.

    As far as Fred is concerned, well keep doing what your doing man. You will become a starter in time.

    Where’s Matt Terl? Did he seriously take a vacation the week that all the players return/free agency heats up to the point profootballtalk.com can’t even keep up with all the transactions?

    Poor timing.

    He was let go the week of the players return/free agency. “Restructuring.”

    The John Mayer Trio is actually pretty damn talented. John Mayer might be a douche, but bassist Pino Palladino and drummer Steve Joran are grade A talents.

    Please dont disappoint us, Matt Terl was the man.

    I’ll do my best RussianBreadMaker! Bear with me! And as far as the John Mayer Trio, I just can’t get past “Your Body Is A Wonderland.” Is that supposed to be a good thing?
