Former UConn OL Steve Greene heading to Redskins camp

According to his Twitter account, former UConn offensive guard Steve Greene has secured a tryout with the NFL's Washington Redskins beginning today

It should be noted that last year receiver Nick Williams received a similar opportunity and made enough of an impression to get onto the field to appear in five games with the Redskins.

Greene is the third UConn product I've heard of getting an NFL tryout joining defensive ends Jesse Joseph and Tim Willman who earned invitations to camp with Chicago and  Jacksonville respectively. Of course seventh-round picks Shamar Stephen (Minnesota Vikings) and Yawin Smallwood (Atlanta Falcons) will also be taking part in rookie camps.
