Each year before the season begins, the Redskins players are handed a hard copy of their profile in the team’s media guide before it’s released so that they can read it over and suggest any changes.
Most players give it a quick glance and hand it back without thinking twice.
Lorenzo Alexander, meanwhile, suggested one change for his profile this season: his listed position.
Though previous media guides suggest Alexander had made a move to linebacker during the 2010 season, he decided to cross out “linebacker” this year and replace it with “athlete” (see above).
“I’m an athlete, baby,” Alexander explained Thursday before practice. “I just don’t play linebacker. I’m expected to know fullback, tight end, outside linebacker, defensive end, inside linebacker, special teams — I don’t qualify that as being just a linebacker. That’s an athlete.”
Alexander’s ability to move from one position to another — not to mention on offense, defense and special teams — has been well-documented.
