James “Butter Pecan” Lee: Battle Tested

Posted by Andrew Walker on May 9, 2012 – 10:41 am

Newly-acquired Redskins offensive tackle James Lee has encountered several bumps in life.

From a rough upbringing, to transferring from a national championship-contending college football program to a small, Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) school, to meandering off and on active NFL rosters, the 26-year-old Lee can certainly boast an unusual path to Washington.

Fittingly, Lee told prointerviews.org’s Max Strauss that his life can be summed up in one description: like a helping of butter pecan ice cream.

New Redskins Tackle James Lee Has Tips

This afternoon, the Redskins brought in offensive tackle James Lee, a former undrafted free agent claimed off waivers by Bruce Allen to Tampa Bay in 2008.  He will provide depth at a Redskins’ area of need this offseason, and compete for playing time behind Trent Williams and Jammal Brown.

Lee has appeared in 19 games over the last four years, starting 10 for former Bucs head coach, Redskins secondary coach, Raheem Morris.  His big season was in 2010, when he started nine games en route to the playoffs, helping the Buccaneers average 125.1 rushing yards per game, which ranked third in the NFC (eighth in the NFL).

Lee, 26, played collegiately at South Carolina State where he appeared in 33 games with 31 starts. As a senior, he was named third-team All-American by the Associated Press and was an honorable mention choice for the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) All-America squad.

Perhaps his best asset, is that Lee can also provide a veteran influence, which could one day blossom into a career in coaching.  Why so confident? Lee is already an Internet sensation, demonstrating proper pulling technique in an infomercial for ProTips4U: Read more »

Young Repays Support With World Tour

Posted by Brian Tinsman on February 9, 2012 – 2:35 pm

Intensity.  Passion.  Commitment.

These are a few of the qualities that push Redskins fullback Darrel Young to new heights on the football field.  Indeed, these are things that every athlete needs in order to make it in pro sports, although every player draws it from a different place.

For Young, that source has always been in his brother David, a sergeant first class in the US Army.  David has been deployed in the Middle East for much of Darrel’s career, but remains close with his brother, providing him with guidance and support, even from a world away.

In an effort to repay the favor, Darrel has teamed up with the Bills’ Drayton Florence and the Buccaneers’ James Lee as part of the “NFL Players Super Bowl Tour.”  Since departing the United States on Feb. 1, the trio has visited troops stationed in Greenland, El Salvador and Honduras.

According to Young’s personal blog, this is an honor for him, and a debt that he needs to repay to his brother: Read more »
