Summer Spotlight - Jeremy Sprinkle
Tight end Jeremy Sprinkle had quite a bit of unanticipated responsibilities to bear during his third season in Washington. Sprinkle, who usually serves as the third-string tight end, was the starter for most of the season last year, not by choice.
With veterans Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis facing injuries that kept them out most, if not all of the season, he was forced to play a role that he was not yet ready to fill.
Sprinkle now has some competition at tight end that may very well put his roster status in trouble, but coaches will definitely give him the opportunity to earn a spot this pre-season. Take a look at Jeremy Sprinkle here as he enters the "Summer Spotlight."
Inside the Numbers:
Sprinkle finished his 2019 campaign with 16 games played (13 starts), for 26 receptions, 241 yards, and one touchdown.
