Seven Redskins Still Have Rooting Interests In The Sweet 16


Chances are your NCAA bracket was busted over the weekend. It's been a few days for that to probably sink in, and it's OK to let it sit a while longer as you try to justify you previous selections and seek order during a month in which the basketball gods really enjoy creating madness.

Once you're over that, however, and want to align yourself with some Redskins players' rooting interests, there are still a few teams to choose from to help the healing process.

Check out these photos of safety D.J. Swearinger.

Because the Redskins carry a solid contingent of Florida Gator alums – Jordan Reed, Quinton Dunbar, Matt Jones and Mack Brown -- there will be plenty of support on Friday night when they take on Wisconsin.

Newcomer safety D.J. Swearinger still has South Carolina to root for after they upset Duke, and, in turn, wide receiver Jamison Crowder's feelings, in the second round. The Gamecocks take on Baylor Friday evening. Offensive lineman Ronald Patrick, who spent the season on the practice squad, will also be watching South Carolina intently.

And then, representing the strong triumvirate of Big Ten schools, linebacker Ryan Kerrigan will be waving the black and gold flag for Purdue this Thursday, hoping his Boilermakers can knock off the region's No. 1 seeded Kansas Jayhawks.

For reference, here is when you can join one of these Redskin's bandwagons and feel unified in your rooting interest again.
