First Black Player On Redskins Reveals Reason For Being Cut From Team

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

While Leroy Jackson was not the first brother to get drafted into the NFL, he was the first to actually play in a game for the Redskins.  There is no doubt that the Redskins ownership back in the early 60’s was racist.  What other reason could owner George Preston Martin have had to be the last team to draft black players?  Yahoo sports is reporting that Jackson, who still lives in S.E. D.C., was probably cut after being caught with a white woman in his hotel room.
