July 21: Redskin Birthdays

On a daily basis, Fatpickled recognizes the birthdays of the men who have played, and currently play for, my favorite teams. The Redskins, Orioles, Wizards, and Terps.

Happy birthday Mike Sellers. Mike is coming off his first Pro Bowl season and may be the best blocking Fullback in the NFL. Mike is entering his 9th season as a Redskin and has appeared in 121 games. Clinton Portis and Ladell Betts have followed his lead block for the past 5 seasons, totaling 8,507 yards rushing during that time. Mike is also a tremendous special teams player. Happy 34th Mr. Sellers!

Happy birthday Henry Ellard. Henry played with the Redskins from 1994-1998. His 1,394yards receiving in 1994 still ranks 3rd best in a Redskin single season all-time. Overall, he appeared in 65 games and had 216 receptions for 3,930 yards for the Redskins. His career statistics are pretty impressive: 814 REC 13,777 YDS 65 TD’s and 3 Pro Bowl appearances over 16 seasons. In retirement Henry got into coaching and is currently the receivers coach for the New York Jets. Happy 48th Mr. Ellard!

Happy birthday Darryl Pounds. Darryl played 5 seasons with the Redskins from 1995-1999 appearing in 69 games. He was a 3rd round pick and a very versatile defensive back. His versatility shows in his 1997 stat line: 3 interceptions, 2 sacks, 2 touchdowns and 30 tackles. In retirement Daryl has become a major power player in DC real estate. He owns a company called Pounds Properties. Happy 37th Mr. Pounds!

Cheers and Hail
