WFT Safety Jeremy Reaves Would ‘Run Through a Brick Wall' for Ron Rivera
01/15/2021 5:15pm

Jeremy Reaves would run through a brick wall for Ron Rivera originally appeared on NBC Sports WashingtonBack in early November, head coach Ron Rivera had a choice to make. With Landon Collins done for the year with a torn Achilles, he could have looked to the free-agent market specifically Eric Reid for a reinforcement.He didnt and instead gave safety Jeremy Reaves the chance to earn the spot.Reaves began the season on Washingtons practice squad, but by the end of the season, was starting against Tampa Bay in the playoffs. Its a journey Reaves will never forget, andhes forever grateful to Rivera and the coaching staff for believing in him.Coach Ron Rivera and Defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio, my DBs coach, Coach Chris Harris, they played a huge role in that. Like I said, after the Dallas game, Coach Rivera couldve went any different route. Im a practice-squad guy that he doesnt know, all he has is film of me from last year that was very scarce, and I was a different player last year than I am this year, Reaves said during Washingtons locker cleanout on Sunday. So he put his full faith and confidence in me, and my D.C. did as well, as I did my position coach. They trusted me, which says a lot about them, and I think that says a lot about the work that I was putting in when I was here on the practice squad.As Reaves said, Rivera didnt have to give him a chance on the field. With no prior connection between the two, he could have easily gone another route in terms of a replacement.Yet, Riveras mentality since he arrived in Washington was that the young players deserve a chance. In 2020, his goal was to evaluate the roster and see what he had. That meant giving Reaves an opportunity to makes plays for the team and play a valuable role.Understanding that, the safety has promised to do whatever it takes to make Riveras decision look like the right one.Awesome, man. Again, for a head coach to put faith in a guy that was a practice-squad guy and to give him an opportunity, Id run through a brick wall for Coach.Ill give Coach everything I got because he gave me an opportunity and he didnt have to do that. He had a guy that he knew, that played in the system, that he was comfortable with, and he went with me, Reaves said.So, like I said, Ill give everything up for him. Im super thankful, Im super grateful for every opportunity that was given to me this year because it didnt have to be like that. I tried to play balls to the wall for that man.Obviously, Reaves deserves some credit here as well. Rivera gave him a shot, but he ran with it and established himself as a piece of the defense. Starting in a playoff game is no small accomplishment.Coming a long way from his time as an undrafted free agent, Reaves credits his work ethic as what has allowed him to find success. Whether he was on a practice squad or in the starting 11, his attitude and preparation were always the same.2020 showed him that as long as he keeps that mentality, good things will come.Nine weeks ago I was a practice squad guy fighting for a job every day, and yesterday I was playing for a team that was fighting in the playoffs, Reaves said. So it just kind of goes to show you that persistence is key and your opportunity will come as long as you just continue to grind and continue to keep your head down and keep working.

Reports: Yankees Sign DJ LeMahieu to Take Top Free Agent Infielder Off Board
01/15/2021 4:45pm

Reports: Yankees sign LeMahieu to take top FA infielder off board originally appeared on NBC Sports WashingtonThe New York Yankees have signed two-time batting champion DJ LeMahieu to a six-year, $90 million deal that will keep him in the Bronx through his age-37 season, according to multiple reports.LeMahieu was the top free agent infielder available on the market, a player the Nationals reportedly inquired about earlier this offseason as they searched for an upgrade at third base. The 10-year veteran has logged significant innings as first, second and third base throughout his career and as a result couldve fit in nearly any lineup across the majors.Instead, hes headed back to the Yankees, with whom hes won back-to-back Silver Sluggers since joining them during his first taste of free agency prior to the 2019 season. New York will likely keep him at his natural position of second base, keeping Gleyber Torres over at shortstop despite questions about his defense while Luke Voit first base and Gio Urshela third round out the rest of the infield.Download and subscribe to the Nationals Talk podcastThe LeMahieu deal could provide a jumpstart for the infield market, which has been slow to develop particularly for third basemen. He was the clear-cut top free agent infielder available, which leaves players such as Marcus Semien, Didi Gregorius, Justin Turner and Tommy La Stella headlining the next tier down. With spring training only a month away, those players will hope that teams crack into the free agent market a bit more before finalizing their rosters ahead of camp.LeMahieus six-year deal represents the largest free-agent commitment made by any team so far this offseason, eclipsing the four-year contracts signed by catcher James McCann Mets and Japanese shortstop Ha-seong Kim Padres. Fellow top free agents George Springer, Marcell Ozuna, J.T. Realmuto and Trevor Bauer are all still available.Washington has made a few splashes this offseason, dealing two prospects to the Pittsburgh Pirates for first baseman Josh Bell and signing outfielder Kyle Schwarber to a one-year deal. However, the team still has several roster holes to fill including an infielder, No. 4 starter, left-handed reliever and backup catcher.

WFT President on Team Name: ‘Not Going to Be a Random-Bird'
01/15/2021 3:51pm

WFT president says team name wont be random-expletive bird originally appeared on NBC Sports WashingtonThe Washington Football Team is still sorting through thousands of submissions from fans around the world to determine what its next name and logo will be.While the team has yet to start narrowing down the field, team president Jason Wright joined 106.7 The Fans Grant & Danny show on Thursday afternoon and discussed how Washington plans to keep its colors while ruling out one specific category of team name.A few things are starting to become clear, Wright said. No. 1: Burgundy and gold should never change, period. That is a core aspect of the identity of this team and we know it is important from all this research as well to make sure we dont feel like an expansion club and were tied to the history. We have to keep the burgundy and gold as a centerpiece to all of this.The other thing that we heard clearly is that something random would land poorly. We need something thats connected to the history of the club or to the area or to something else that is meaningful to the fanbase already, meaningful to the area, etc. So picking some random-expletive bird mascot doesnt feel like the right approach, at least from what weve seen so far.The NFL already has five teams around the league named after birds: Philadelphia Eagles, Seattle Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons and Baltimore Ravens. However, Wright stressed the importance of the franchises brand representing the D.C. fanbase and evidently, that doesnt involve any winged creatures.Wright added that the teams research has shown that fans want the organization to convey a sense of aggression, of boldness, of edginess both on and off the field. He said there has been a large influx of calls for the team to build a reputation that demands respect, both through off-the-field practices such as community engagement and effective business operations as well as building a brand that makes fans proud to associate themselves with the organization.Washington has yet to announce a timeline for when a new name and logo will be put in place.For more interviews, tune into the Sports Junkies on NBC Sports Washington, weekdays from 6-10 a.m.Download and subscribe to the Washington Football Talk podcast
