NFL Rumors: Washington Redskins Inquire about Larry Lumpkin
Lumpkin, a former Alabama A&M linebacker, made himself available for Thursday’s supplemental NFL draft. Since then, he’s been under the radar on watch by several NFL Teams.
However, according to reports he has some issues. Jay Martin, A&M linebackers coach told Reggie Benson of The Huntsville Times that, “He was constantly late for meetings and he would miss practice at least one day a week.”
Do we want another Albert Haynesworth? Poor attitude and discipline?
Lumpkin is scheduled to work out at a high school in Irvington, Ala.
At 6 feet, weighing about 235 pounds, he runs the 40 in 4.8. But then again, that was at Bama in 2010–what he does now has to be seen.
Lumpkin left A&M with 39 tackles and 12 tackles-for-loss. He was dismissed from the team for missing and/or being late to practices. Lumpkin transferred to Carson-Newman and had a nice season with 94 total-tackles, but was dismissed for academics.
I’m really not sure where this guy would fit in the scheme of things this season. If his habits are like this in college, then how can the Redskins consider him for the team they have now? While second chances are always popular (with hopes of a redeeming season), the chances that three’s a charm on the pro level are slim. And besides, this would look very desperate on Mike Shanahan’s part to pick up a guy with habits that he strongly opposes. The Redskins don’t need the distraction.
