Lavar and Chad Dukes conducted a lengthy interview with Devin Thomas about, among other things, his lack of playing time. The interview will be aired this Sunday on Sports Week at 11:30 on DC 50. At any rate, after interviewing him, they determined that Devin wasn't the problem. They concluded that there's something personal going on with Devin and the Redskins are playing games with him. In particular, they likened his situation to what happened to Lavar towards the end of his tenure here.
Having said that, there are some qualifications. The interview, of course, is one sided as we're only getting Devin's version of why he isn't getting playing time at WR. And we haven't heard or watched the interview at all in its entirety to get what Devin states as his case for playing time. Then, there's always the fact that Lavar still may not be the most objective guy when it comes to the Redskins.
If you had to go on what we hear in the clip above, however, you get the impression that Devin is doing what he's asked and really wants to get on the field. He supposedly was on the brink of tears at one point during the interview when expressing his desire to get some PT at WR. While we won't know for sure what exactly is going on, his story does have some plausible ring to it (a la Shanny and Haynesworth). And, as I've noted before, the guy does have the talent and skills to play WR. He did so last year and we're simply in no position to be picky in who we choose in sending out there as our WRs.
I say give the kid a chance so he can give the Redskins a chance at opening up their offense. Unless there's some real good reason why he's sitting down as a WR (but somehow not as a KR), this has gone a bit too far.
