Samaje Perine Washington Redskins Jerseys Elite China

Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden was recently interviewed on ESPN 980 radio about the Redskins fourth-round draft pick, running back Samaje Perine, out of the University of Oklahoma.  The coach was very optimistic about the 5-10 rookie being integrated into the Burgundy and gold’s running attack in 2017.

“He had over 4,000 yards at Oklahoma which is pretty good,” Gruden said.  “We interviewed him at the Combine. He has unbelievable focus [and ] great character. You can just see the focus he has wholesale jerseys on the game… the details of playing the position.”

The Redskins had  a stout backfield before drafting the rookie out of Norman, Oklahoma. Second-year running back and undrafted free agent, Robert Kelley, established himself as the leader of Washington’s ground game after starting nine games in 2016 and rushing for 704 yards and six touchdowns.

Perine, the No. 1 rushing yardage leader at Oklahoma (in the history of the University), is going to make the running back position one of the most interesting to watch during the Redskins’ upcoming training camp.

Gruden expressed high praise for the rookie and envisions him getting quality production with Kelley and third-down specialist Chris Thompson.

“I think he’s going to be a leader… he’s tough and he’s physical,” the fourth-year coach said.
