Trueblood: ‘I Welcome Challenge Of Competing’

Posted May 23, 2013

Redskins OT Jeremy Trueblood said he feels like a rookie again after seven seasons in the NFL, but is enjoying the change of scenery and the opportunity to compete for playing time.

Not many players get the opportunity to start fresh after seven seasons in the NFL, but offensive tackle Jeremy Trueblood is enjoying the experience in Washington

The 2006 second-round pick by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers said he feels like the most experienced rookie on the field during Redskins’ OTA’s.

“It’s kind of like being a rookie all over again,” he said with a grin. “But it’s still a lot of fun meeting a lot of new guys and the guys have been great so it’s been a lot of fun.”

Trueblood is looking for a new opportunity in Washington and says he plans on making an impact early on.

“It’s exciting,” Trueblood said. “I welcome the challenge of competing. It’s a good organization so it’s going to be fun.”

Trueblood was drafted by Redskins general manager Bruce Allen during his tenure in Tampa Bay and also played for Redskin’s defensive backs coach Raheem Morris from 2009-2011.

Trueblood’s veteran stability, depth and versatility are a quality addition to the Redskins offensive line unit.

While he is expected to compete with Tyler Polumbus, Tony Pashos and Tom Compton at right tackle, he has experience at offensive guard dating back to his time at Cathedral High School in Indianapolis.

“I played guard a little last year and I think it went well,” he said. “[The Buccaneers] just decided to give me the opportunity when the guard spot opened up.

“So just last year and in college, but college is a little different.”

For much of his first six years in the NFL, Trueblood was a starter for the Buccaneers’ offense, but lost his job following the first game of the 2012 season.

After suffering a shoulder injury in November, Trueblood’s run in Tampa Bay came to a close, and he looked for a change of scenery to revitalize his career.

Appearing for the first time in front of the media during OTA practices today, Trueblood gave a thumbs up on his shoulder health and said he is ready to compete.

“It’s 100 percent,” he said of his shoulder. “It’s fun to just to play on a team again. I haven’t played since November, so it has been a while.”

With his connection to coach Morris, Allen and a healthy respect for the competition, Trueblood has an optimistic outlook on his future in Washington.

“We’ve got three really good options,” he said. “We’ll just see what happens from here.”
