Marlon Favorite on Thursday became the newest member of the Washington Redskins, signing with the team as a roster replacement for nose tackle Chris Neild, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in practice earlier this week.
Favorite already has logged lots of miles in the NFL since signing with the Carolina Panthers as a college free agent out of LSU in May 2009, having spent portions of the past three seasons with the Panthers, St. Louis Rams (twice), Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks, New Orleans Saints, Buffalo Bills, Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles.
But thanks to the world of social media, a video has surfaced of just what kind of player Favorite is.
Last season, Favorite was playing in the preseason for the Eagles, who were playing host to the Cleveland Browns. Then-Browns quarterback Jarrett Brown began scrambling and was obviously going to pick up a nice gain when Favorite — who was clearly beaten on the play — still dove all out for the quarterback.
I like that kind of hustle in a player, especially a guy who is doing whatever he can to make a roster.
Anyway, here’s the video, via PIDiDIDY5 on YouTube:
