Will Blackmon: 'I Would Love To Be Back Here'

Posted Feb 2, 2016

Veteran cornerback Will Blackmon was thankful for the opportunity to play with the Redskins in 2015 and wants to return to Washington next season.

Veteran cornerback Will Blackmon was thankful for the opportunity to play with the Redskins in 2015 and wants to return to Washington next season.

As an unrestricted free agent going into the offseason, Will Blackmon is hopeful that he can return to the Washington Redskins and continue to build a solid foundation for his family, something that he hasn’t had over the past few seasons.

Since entering the league in in 2006, Blackmon has played for five teams, including two separate stints with the Seattle Seahawks.

He said that the lack of stability has been hard, admitting that he wants to finally find a permanent home for his family.

“Yeah, no question, I would love to be back here," Blackmon said. "Like I said, I was just thankful I was given an opportunity to contribute and I just want to be somewhere for however long. It’s exhausting to keep signing these one-year, minimum deals here and there and it’s even more difficult when you have a family. We went from Jacksonville to Seattle and then Seattle to Virginia, so we’re going all over the country so it’ll be cool, whether it’s here or somewhere else, to be somewhere.”

Blackmon joined the Redskins in Week 2, coming off the street and making an immediate impact on defense.

The Boston College product contributed 49 tackles and a sack in an effort to establish himself in Washington and prove that he can still play.

Even though Blackmon contributed significantly, he admitted that there are things he needs to improve upon.

“I think I put some exciting things out there, definitely little things I can clean up and do better with, but this year’s different because I finished the year healthy," Blackmon said. "I finished the year starting and making some key plays to help get this team in position, so we’ll see.”

While Blackmon has made it clear that he would like to return for the 2016 season, he said that he doesn’t know what general manager Scot McCloughan has in mind going forward.  

“I have no idea," Blackmon said. "[McCloughan] brought me in here Week 2 just to contribute, they told me I was going to be here in the sub-packages, I was sixth on the depth chart and then every week I was just given more and more of a role, there and on special teams and on defense, so I have no idea what he wants to do. I can only control what I can control and that’s just being in shape and being ready for whoever is ready to give me the opportunity next.”

As he moves forward, Blackmon, whether it is with the Redskins again or not, will always cherish what the 2015 season did for his career.

“I don’t know how anyone else feels, but just speaking for myself, I’m just thankful for the opportunity," Blackmon said. "And I can see myself here next year and playing at an even higher level, so I definitely would want to be here.”
