Pierre Garcon was on Sirius XM NFL Radio with Rich Gannon and Bruce Murray today, and after some discussion of RGIII’s healing prowess, the conversation turned to potential HGH testing in the NFL. Garcon said that he’s a supporter.
“I guess they have to do whatever it takes to clean the sport up,” he said. “Whatever it takes, whatever needs to be done, I’m all for it.”
Gannon accepted that answer and immediately moved to the next item on his list of controversial topics, asking Garcon how he feels about the Redskins team name.
“It would be weird if the name gets changed,” said Garcon. “You see how the basketball teams are changing their names to the Pelicans and Hornets and Bobcats and all that stuff. It would be weird to change the Washington Redskins name, but it’s all up to Dan Snyder and I don’t think he’s gonna change the name anytime soon.”
Gannon, who played for the Redskins in 1993, was a little more direct about which side of the issue he falls on.
“As a former Redskin, I hope they don’t change it, Pierre,” he said. “I like the history, I like the tradition of that great organization. We’ll see how that plays out.”
Gannon also played for the Vikings, Chiefs, and Raiders. That’s a “potentially offensive NFL team name” superfecta.
