The Washington Football Team announced Tuesday that they were signing Sammis Reyes to their roster.
Reyes is originally from Chile. He arrived in the United States to play basketball at Tulane. His NBA dreams soon turned to the NFL when the league selected him for its International Pathway Program. Washington snatched him up before anyone could blink.
At 6-feet-6-inches and 260 pounds, Reyes has the size required to play tight end in the NFL. The current Washington Football Team tight end roster consists of Temarrick Hemingway who has one career catch, former undrafted free agent Marcus Baugh, and converted college quarterback Tyrone Swoopes..
Now, it is up to his obvious physical tools, and the fact that he’s the first NFL international selection to turn away from basketball to play football.
Washington signed Reyes on Tuesday after he was trained by the International Pathway Program at the IMG Academy in Florida.
With his massive size and, above all, his freakish athleticism for his size, Reyes established himself as a legitimate NFL prospect, something Washington, obviously, couldn’t avoid.
