In a Redskins training camp devoid of drama, one of the more amusing stories has been the saga of new punter Sav Rocca. He hasn't yet shown up because he's having issues getting a visa from his native Australia, and while pretty much everyone believes he'll figure it out, there's always the chance it doesn't.
But don't worry, you guys. Mike Shanahan has a plan. Via Capital Games.
"He's got a job here in the U.S.," Shanahan told reporters. "Eventually they'll let him go or, at least, I'm hoping they let him go. If not, I told him to get married to an American and that'll make it easier."
Brilliant! That's why they say Shanahan is a mad genius. He's even asking for help too!
"If you know anybody in the visa department that can help us, I'd really appreciate it," he said. "If anybody has any connections, we need some help right now."
