Washington Redskins’ Chris Thompson Ready To Prove His Worth
For Washington Redskins rookie running back Chris Thompson, this week is a week to celebrate. Thompson was unsure if he would make the final cuts, but he has secured the fourth-string running back position and is now the Redskins’ punt return man for 2013.
Thompson was drafted in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL Draft, taken 154th overall. He was an All-Star during his college career with Florida State University. He was a major contributor to their 2012 offense, which has gone down in their history as their best ever, amassing 6,591 yards. Thompson became third in FSU history with a career 6.26-yard average after amassing 1,735 yards on 277 carries.
Of course, Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan likes to have the competitive advantage and not let his opponents prepare for his game plans. Therefore, he has stated that wide receivers Santana Moss and Joshua Morgan are also in competition for the punt return job. This has not phased Thompson, who is still the lead contender for the job.
“I’m prepared for whatever coach wants me to do,” Thompson stated. “… I just continue to prepare every single day and if coach calls my name, I want to be ready.”
Thompson is ready to prove his worth to the Redskins wherever he can. Whether as a punt returner or an eventual running back, look for Thompson on the field in 2013.
