Morning pixels: Redskins bubble guys speak out


The Redskins have played their last preseason game, and the final 53-man roster is due to the league office by Friday evening. This means that for a lot of guys, it’s going to be a long two days.

Some of the players, including fan favorite Brandon Banks, are sitting on the bubble, with no guarantee that there will be a roster spot for them. Here’s what a few of them had to say.

Brandon Banks
“I think I put enough on film that I’ll still have a job somewhere — if not here, somewhere else.” (via WaPo)

Anthony Armstrong
“It’s been crazy, honestly. It’s just talent from top to the bottom. Everybody can play. It’s going to make difficult decisions. I feel like whoever doesn’t make the roster here will most definitely be on somebody else’s team.” (via Washington Times)

Aldrick Robinson
“I’m going to put my phone on silent so if I do get [a call Friday], I won’t hear it.” (via Washington Times)

Dezmon Briscoe
“I’m not really too confident about if I’m going to make it or not. My offensive performance was pretty good this preseason, but I didn’t play any special teams.” (via Examiner)

Doug Worthington
“Luckily I do have some (practice) squad eligibility, so hopefully I will have a job with the Washington Redskins.” (via FootballNewsNow)

BECAUSE YOU DON’T READ THE PAPER . . .
* Roy Helu Jr. and Evan Royster have made their case for a spot on the Redskins roster.

* Mike Wise is asking Kirk Cousins to back off Rex Grossman’s backup job.

* After a talking to by Davey Johnson, the Nats pulled it together and won in Miami.

* Former D.C. United player Bryan Namoff is suing the team over a career ending concussion.

* The Virginia football team is excited about running back Perry Jones. “They don’t call him Superman for nothing.”

TWEET OF THE NIGHT
You have all let John Carlson down . . .

QUOTE OF THE NIGHT
Davey Johnson, on Bryce Harper getting ejected for slamming his helmet:

“He’s just a 100-percenter. And he expects great things out of himself. He breaks bats, throws his helmet. He’s just got to stop it. Can’t afford to be losing him in a ballgame with that. He’ll learn.”

HIGHLIGHT OF THE NIGHT
Harper’s monster home run . . .

RGIII STYLE

I DON’T GET IT
Here’s a video of a pedal-less bike powered by running, which really just looks like a way more uncomfortable scooter. I don’t know what it costs, but it’s certainly more expensive than normal running.
