That’s because an all-time great Redskins’ son could be suited up for the opposing team.

Early last week, while the sports world was waiting for the football Pro Day spectacles in Waco, Texas and Palo Alto, Calif., a much smaller contingent of scouts was at the Louisiana Lafayette Pro Day.
Those who were there–and the 78 people who watched on Youtube–saw Jared Green, son of Redskins legend Darrell Green, run a blistering 4.33 in the 40-yard dash.
Officially, that number was inflated to 4.38, still one of the faster times in his draft class. Check it out for yourself: Read more »

Earlier this offseason, we peeked at the pre-draft diary of Jared Green, son of Redskins legend Darrell Green, who is looking to follow in his father’s NFL footsteps.
The elder Green offered unparalleled longevity during his time in Washington, and was renowned for his breath-taking speed. On his 40th birthday–which he celebrated as a Redskins player–Green clocked a 4.2 at Redskins training camp.
On his 50th birthday, Darrell had finally slowed to a 4.43, which is still faster than all but three of the 2012 Combine times.

The next generation of Greens are ready to take to the NFL gridiron, as Darrell’s son Jared is on his own path to the pros.
The 6-2, 200-pound receiver from Ashburn, Va. began his collegiate career at the University of Virginia, where he played for three years and earned his degree in anthropology.
He has ideal NFL size and speed (he told Aaron Wilson of Scout.com that he intends to run his 40-yard dash in 4.3 seconds), but never got the opportunity to show what he can do for the Cavaliers. So after his third season of eligibility, he transferred to Southern University last season, where he hoped to get noticed by NFL scouts.
In his only season with the Jaguars, he caught 17 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns. Now he’s ready for the next level, which started with his appearance in the Astroturf NFLPA Collegiate Bowl in Los Angeles (via Wilson of Scout.com):
“I think [the bowl game is] awesome…We’re staying at the Westin. We’re using great facilities and we get nice food. We got our own football cards to sign and others we got to keep. That was pretty cool, to have your own football card.”
Just like his father before him, he sounds humble enough to focus on the little things.
