Jammal Brown needs to walk the walk.
In his article that also dealt with the apparently popular topic of the Redskins tackle’s use of yoga, The Washington Times’ Rich Campbell wrote about how Brown has had to adjust the way his feet point when he moves.
They naturally point out, which has contributed to Brown’s hip problems. So Brown has to consciously get his feet pointed straight.
“It feels real awkward,” Brown told the Times. “I just catch myself during the day at the house. Any time I try to walk, I try to line my toes up.”
In other words, he’s got to toe the line. Or walk the straight and narrow.
What an odd situation for a man to find himself in, heading into his seventh NFL season, with two Pro Bowl appearances — both with the Saints — on his resume. And now he has to change the way his puts one foot in front of the other.
According to Pro Football Focus’ rankings, Brown rated in the bottom 20 — No. 64 — when it came to pass blocking efficiency among NFL tackles. The Redskins can’t want that for their prized rookie quarterback.
“I know what I can do,” Brown said. “I just want to get healthy so I can show it.”
