Redskins Peyton Barber Jersey Youth Cheap

The Redskins have signed running back Authentic Peyton Barber Jersey, the team announced XX. Barber, 26, has spent the past four seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Head coach Ron Rivera is familiar with Barber dating back to his years as the head coach of the Carolina Panthers. In eight games against the Panthers, Barber had 79 carries for 262 yards while averaging 3.3 yards per attempt.

Barber has appeared in 63 games and rushed for 1,987 yards and 15 touchdowns. Here are five things Redskins fans should know about the running back.

  1. He comes from a college that produces solid running backs.

Barber was a three-star recruit when playing for Milton High School in Georgia. He was originally set to play for the University of Mississippi before reneging on his commitment to sign with Auburn.

The Tigers have a history of churning out NFL-caliber running backs dating back to Cadillac Williams in 2005. Other recent Tigers running backs who were drafted include Kerryon Johnson, Cameron Artis-Payne, Tre Mason and Ben Tate.

Although he only played two seasons and one as a consistent starter for the Tigers, Barber made the most of his time by rushing for 1,017 yards and 13 touchdowns while averaging 4.3 yards per rush.

The Tigers went 15-11 with Barber on the team and appeared in two bowl games. He chose to forego his final two years of eligibility to enter the 2016 NFL Draft.

  1. He was an undrafted free agent who earned a starting job.

Barber posted solid numbers at the NFL Scouting Combine with a 4.64 40-yard dash time and a 4.21 20-yard shuttle, but he went undrafted and was signed by the Buccaneers.

Barber made it through training camp but was waived as part of the team’s final roster cuts. He was back with the Buccaneers the next day as a member of the practice squad and then promoted to the active roster four days later.

He was used as a special teams player for the first four games, but he finally got his first-career carry against Rivera and Panthers in Week 5. He only had three carries for six yards, but he saw a large increase in production the following week with 12 carries for 84 yards against the San Francisco 49ers.

Two games later, he got his first-career start. He went on to start four games in 2017 and all 16 in 2018.

  1. The NFL is a family affair for him.

Barber isn’t the first player in his family to play in the NFL. Actually, he has three cousins — Marion and Dominique Barber and Jeremy Langford — who have had stints among the professional ranks.

Marion was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the fourth round of the 2005 NFL Draft and played for six seasons in Dallas and one with the Chicago Bears. He was a versatile running back during that time with 4,780 rushing yards and 1,330 receiving yards. He even had a Pro Bowl season in 2007 with 1,257 total yards and 12 touchdowns.

Barber’s other cousins had shorter careers. Dominique was drafted by the Houston Texans with a sixth-round pick in 2008 and played four seasons. Langford began his NFL career in 2015 and played for the Bears for two seasons followed by a one-year stint with the Atlanta Falcons.

ASHBURN, Virginia — It’s hard to know the impact Washington Redskins linebacker Junior Galette will make Sunday or this season as a whole; so much depends upon his health. Aside from a minor hamstring issue in camp, Galette has been healthy, but when you haven’t played in two years, questions always will be asked.

But he’s stood out to teammates in practice and he does have a history of success, though he last played in 2014. Still, the Redskins are anticipating success with him, and he looked good enough in the preseason to indicate they just might be right.

A big key for Galette will be that he can throw a change-up at a blocker. For example, if a tackle must block Ryan Kerrigan for three or four snaps, the Redskins can then line Galette up in the same spot. Galette is more explosive than Kerrigan; it could lead to a curveball that benefits Washington.

Also, they now have the ability to pair Galette’s speed off the ball with power on a stunt, something the Redskins haven’t had in recent years. A Galette-Preston Smith pairing could lead to fun games up front. Also, against mobile Eagles’ quarterback Carson Wentz, Galette’s quickness will help.

“We expect him to come out and play well, be a great pass-rusher for us,” Redskins coach Jay Grduen said of Galette. “He’s hungry. He’s been dying to get back on the field. He’s excited to play so I’m excited to watch him play. Hopefully we get them in some third-and-longs to get him an opportunity to rush. That’ll be the key for us. Let him get his hand on the ground and come around the corner like he does so well.”

Galette said his hamstring issues are long gone. He said from the time camp opened to now, he’s feeling much better — more explosive, better hand-eye coordination on rush moves.

“Everything’s different. It’s night and day,” he said.

And after two years of no games, he said he didn’t have trouble sleeping leading up to his return Sunday against the Eagles.

“I had trouble sleeping when I wasn’t around football,” he said.

Other notes:

Stick to the ground: The Redskins always have been patient with their run game against the Eagles. In six games vs. them under Jay Gruden, they’ve averaged 28.5 carries per game. They know that Philadelphia’s defense leads to some negative runs, but also provides openings for big gains.

Indeed, last season the Redskins averaged 6.02 yards per carry vs. the Eagles. But they lost yards on 10 of their 58 carries.

The Eagles use a wide-nine front in which an end aligns outside the tight end and the front’s goal is to get upfield fast. That leads to penetration and, sometimes, tackles for a loss. In that second game, for example, on Chris Thompson’s 25-yard touchdown run the Eagles had five defenders one yard across the line of scrimmage after the snap. But the Redskins called a quick pitch to the outside and, with one blocker ahead of him (tackle Trent Williams), Thompson scored untouched.

On 10 of Rob Kelley’s 16 carries in that game, at least one defender was across the line at the snap — and more often than not there were two or three. But it created lanes elsewhere.

“It forces the back to make a decision earlier than normal,” Kelley said. “I also think it’s a benefit. It helps your reads out early and if this guy shoots upfield, you know where to go. If they have something they’re good at, [we] do have something that can beat it.”

Lane Johnson’s return. The Eagles’ right tackle did not play against Washington last season; Kerrigan, who rushes from that side, recorded three sacks and a forced fumble to clinch the second win. But Kerrigan knows with Johnson back, he’ll have a more challenging day.

“He’s so athletic and a big guy,” Kerrigan said. “He’s a tough matchup in that regard. … Their line is really athletic.”

Covering Sproles: Redskins linebacker Zach Brown said facing running back Chris Thompson every day in practice during one-on-one drills, or during team work in training camp, helps prepare him to defend a back such as Darren Sproles. It’ll be the first time Brown will face Sproles.

“He’s a good player,” Brown said. “I’ve guarded a lot of people like him. He’s still a running back; he’s not a receiver. He’s more quick than fast. With Chris, he’s more explosive and fast out of his cuts. Once he goes, he can go. He can go from zero to 100. It makes me get going faster so when I go against people like Sproles, when he breaks I can be on him faster and get to my top speed faster than he gets to his.”

More knowledge: Ziggy Hood started at nose tackle last season out of necessity after Kedric Golston was lost for the season in Week 2. Hood is a natural end, but had to play inside just as he’s doing this season. But the difference? He’s now prepared.

Plus, line coach Jim Tomsula is far more nuanced and detailed in his coaching techniques. That, too, should help. Hood said he’s helped him with his footwork, how to keep them chopping and moving in the middle and not just being suckered into getting upfield and having them hit the other gap.

Hood also had to get used to worrying about three linemen possibly blocking him: both guards and the center. At end, he usually had to be concerned with just two blockers.

“I react a whole lot faster now,” Hood said. “I’m able to back up from the ball and see everything and critique it because I’ve had so many reps at it. Last year I didn’t have any reps. I had the chance to play it in the preseason and that’s a tell-tale sign: This is what I need to work on leading up to the season. I didn’t have that last season. It’s a huge difference.”
