Yesterday, Redskins safety LaRon Landry (@MrLandry30) wowed Twitterverse with a photo of his arms, allegedly taken following his morning workout and protein regimen. He tweeted simply, “You can’t build a reputation on what your going to do”…

The Redskins brain-trust drafted a group of a dozen players that they hoped would lay the foundation for future success.

But all of that was nearly taken away before it began, on a fateful night back in 1994 on the streets of Cleveland’s East Side. As Fletcher told Joshua Cooley of Sports Spectrum magazine, his 19-year-old self almost had that all snatched away when confrontation nearly led to bloodshed:
As Fletcher walked away, the other man hurried to his car, drove up beside Fletcher and called to him. Fletcher looked over. With an inferno dancing in his eyes, the man pulled out a sawed-off, double-barreled shotgun and pointed it straight at Fletcher. Read more »
