Redskins Kentwan Balmer Has Been Missing for 2 Days
It appears that Balmer has habit of disappearing from Training Camps.
It is amazing that he keeps getting opportunities to play in the league. Hopefully, he is ok and found soon.
Balmer showed up to camp when it opened last week, but he disappeared this week and has been gone for two straight days. The Redskins say his absence is unexcused and they don’t know where he is or why he isn’t with the rest of the team.
“Hopefully it’s nothing very serious,” Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said.
A 2008 first-round draft pick of the 49ers, Balmer has undeniable talent for the defensive end position. But he’s never been able to get his head on straight and has therefore never lived up to his talent. When Balmer failed to show up to the 49ers’ training camp in 2010, he was traded to the Seahawks for a sixth-round draft pick. He lasted one year in Seattle before the Seahawks cut him, then got picked up by Carolina, where he lasted one week before the Panthers cut him. He finally ended up in Washington and played three games for the Redskins last season.
