Where The Swag Lives

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on March 27, 2014 – 3:49 pm

RakAttack

Brian Orakpo entered the studio at Redskins Park positively dripping with swag. Don’t ask me my why style has liquid properties. It just does.

Fresh off signing a one-year franchise tender that would guarantee his position in Washington’s defense for 2014, Orakpo sat down with Tarik El-Bashir and Chris Wilson to tape This Week @ The Park on Thursday. He insisted he needed a microphone to amplify the “Barry White” voice he’s had since the third grade.

The linebacker’s cap read, “Don’t Trip.” His gold watch matched the chains around his neck and the zipper on his varsity jacket.

Orakpo said his streetwear was indicative of an attitude that starts in the linebacker corps.

Orakpo Helps Kids Make Good Choices

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on March 12, 2014 – 12:19 pm

Brian Orakpo told the kids he needed to make a change.

In a video released by the Mid Atlantic Dairy Association, Orakpo told a group of schoolchildren why he decided to improve his diet by eliminating junk and emphasizing nutrient-rich foods like milk and yogurt. The linebacker is part of a Fuel Up to Play 60 initiative emphasizing the importance of a balanced breakfast.

“I used to be like you guys, eating all kinds of candies and chips and stuff, anything that was easy you know,” Orakpo said.

“I used to be like that, but I had to change the direction of my life if I wanted to be where I wanted to be, and that was playing professional football.”

The news of the day in the NFL Monday was unquestionably how teams would manipulate the franchise tag before the 4 p.m. deadline.

The Redskins applied the tag to Brian Orakpo while other teams made decisions that could affect how Washington approaches free agency beginning a week from Tuesday.

RGIII, Hall, Baker Welcome Back Orakpo

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on March 4, 2014 – 10:19 am

Although the franchise tag is not a guarantee Brian Orakpo will return to the Redskins in 2014, it grants the Redskins control of his rights and allows the team more time to negotiate a long-term deal should Washington want to move in that direction.

Orakpo has taken the move in stride.

“They did what they had to do,” he told the Washington Post. “I’m just kind of glad we can at least make a step moving forward instead of being at a stalemate with this whole situation.”

The linebacker’s probable return was reason enough for his teammates to celebrate on Twitter. Read more »

By placing the franchise tag on Brian Orakpo, the Redskins assured the team rights to sign the most esteemed free agent at his position in 2014.

NFL Media dubbed Orakpo a tier one difference maker in a class of his own among linebackers. Evan Silva of Rotoworld named Orakpo his No. 5 impending free agent - tops among linebackers – and CBS Sports had him rated the third-best candidate for free agency.

Picture this.

DeAngelo Hall walks to the door, adjusts his tie and softly knocks. It’s a pleasure to be here. I can’t wait to tell you about a team on the rise. These mashed potatoes are phenomenal. Why yes, Mrs. Orakpo, I will have have a second piece of pie. Let me tell you why Brian should pick the Redskins. Your son will be in good hands. I’ll call you soon.

After a stellar 2013 season convinced the Redskins to re-sign Hall, the cornerback said his first order of business will be to recruit from a talented class of free agents.  Read more »

Even throughout a losing season, certain moments made you stand up and shout. Special plays etch themselves into our memories, where they lie dormant until a trigger brings them to the surface. Redskins TV has produced a series looking back at the top plays of 2013. Which will you remember?

Part two features:

-Aldrick Robinson running behind the Bears (and Chris Cooley’s head explodes).

-Brian Orakpo scoring off a Reed Doughty deflection against Chicago.

-Roy Helu Jr. notching a hat trick to defeat Da Bears.

-DeAngelo Hall picking off Peyton Manning twice in Denver.

Brian Orakpo A Top-5 Free Agent

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 13, 2014 – 11:21 am

(AP)

(AP)

While possibly the best free agent wide receiver prospect plays in the NFC East, the top available linebacker might already be in Washington.

According to an NFL.com Around The League list and a USA Today article, outside linebacker Brian Orakpo is the No. 3 rated free agent in 2014. Bleacher Report rates Orakpo as the seventh-most appealing man on the market, and Rotoworld rates Rak as the top linebacker in this year’s class.

“He can probably thrive in any scheme having also shined as a defensive end in college for Texas. But 3-4 teams will probably value him most,” USA Today wrote.

Trent Williams, Brian Orakpo Saved From Each Other At 2014 NFL Pro Bowl

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 23, 2014 – 12:33 pm

An absent Redskin switched teams due to a last-minute trade in Honolulu that ensured all three of Washington’s representatives would play for Deion Sanders in the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl.

Jerry Rice traded Brian Orakpo, who had not yet arrived in Hawaii, to Sanders for NFL sack leader Robert Mathis in the final move of the Pro Bowl draft. Per the rules of the new draft format, Rice was allowed to force a trade for any non-quarterback because his team picked second.  Read more »
