Redskins Offseason: Washington Targeting Former Alabama A&M Linebacker, According To Report

Last week, former Alabama A&M linebacker Larry Lumpkin announced he was making himself available for the NFL's supplemental draft. According to Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times, the Redskins are among 19 teams that have expressed interest in the defensive standout.

Though talented, Lumpkin would come with some baggage. After two seasons at Alabama A&M, he transferred to Carson-Newman College, a Division II school in Jefferson City, Tenn., but has been deemed ineligible for the 2012 season, prompting him to tun pro.

"Larry was a playmaker for us, but he had a lot of issues," A&M linebackers coach Jay Martin told The Huntsville Times. "He was constantly late for meetings and he would miss practice at least one day a week. He was very undisciplined. He would have helped us, but he didn't want to be here."
