For the last month or so, Bryce Harper, a self-proclaimed Cowboys fan, has been inviting doubt about his football allegiance. And for good reason.
The Redskins won the NFC division this year, upending expectations and reinvigorating fans with Kirk Cousins under center, a breakout star in tight end Jordan Reed and a new general manager that made prudent moves for the entire year.
We've already seen Harper take an Instagram photo of himself working out with a customized "You Like That!" T-shirt on, and just last week, he travelled to San Francisco and wore a Redskins cap to the Super Bowl.
The National League MVP joined Grant and Danny on 106.7 The Fan on Friday and discussed this recent switch in apparel.
"I'm a big fan of what Kirk Cousins did this year," Harper said. "I think he did a great job. The way the Redskins went about it this year, they did such a great job this year, and I was very thrilled, very excited for them. Anytime I can be part of the D.C. family, I think that's huge -- if that's the Caps, if that's the Wizards, or the Spirit, or anybody that's playing out there. It's part of what happens when you play in cities like that with great fan bases and it's a lot of fun to be part of."
So, maybe this year, he caught the fever and wanted to remain relevant and supportive. If the Redskins continue their success, and the Cowboys experience more misfortune, we'll just call 2015 the start of Harper's conversion.
