WASHINGTON (WUSA) - One man's trash is another man's treasure.
Especially if that man is a Redskins fan and that man finds a former player's workbooks from training camp and that man calls into a local radio show to tell everyone about it.
"Josh from Ashburn" called into the Sports Junkies on 106.7 on Thursday morning to tout his find. Evidently the books belonged to rookie free agent Ejiro Ederaine, who was released on Saturday. Ederaine, a linebacker out of Fresno State, apparently dumped some of his Redskins gear and material in a dumpster after getting dumped himself.
Josh told the station he was cleaning out his truck near a dumpster in Ashburn. He looks in the dumpster, notices a clear trash bag with a "burgundy and gold-colored something in it." The trash bag contained a backpack, which he opened, finding the workbooks. Along with the books, he also found Redskins gear, including a pair of team shorts.
Josh did reach out to the team, which told him security would get in touch with him later.
The team did confirm the location where he found the books was indeed near the hotel the Redskins rookies stay.
Now, these are not "playbooks" which contain the team's entire list of plays, but "workbooks" given to players to make notes in meetings. However, in the paranoid universe of the NFL, information is information.
Players are typically required to turn in team material when traded or released, so it remains unclear why Ederaine was left to keep his materials.
