- All the other Commanders topics Ben Standig 57:19
The Athletic’s Ben Standig is here for a bonus episode on all things Commanders this week. Guests: The Athletic’s Mike Smeltz and Aaron Suttles (Alabama insider).
Ben and Mike open the show reacting to news that free agent CB James Bradberry signed with the Eagles and what Ben unearthed on those curious Jack Del Rio comments about the secondary. They also discuss various Commanders’ topics receiving less attention entering OTA, including Montez Sweat’s recovery and next contract, Daron Payne’s motivation, Sam Cosmi’s upside, Cam Sims’s usage. Also, thoughts on the linebacker room … and two kickers! Plus, a brief interlude on the Wizards landing the 10th pick in the NBA Draft lottery.
Then Aaron swings by (39:10) and shares his insight as a long-time Alabama beat writer on two players he covered last season, DT Phidarian Mathis and RB Brian Robinson. Aaron sees one as a steal.
