Jason Buck: ‘I Will Be A Washington Redskin Forever’
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former BYU defensive end Jason Buck took to Facebook to express his thoughts about his time with Washington’s NFL team, formerly known as the Redskins after the team announced they were changing the name of the franchise.
“I will be a Washington Redskin forever,” Buck’s post started.
Buck played for the team in the early 1990s (1991-93). While he was with the team, he won a Super Bowl ring in Super Bowl XXVI against the Buffalo Bills.
“I will always love my Redskin brothers that I played with, the Redskin family and all of our awesome Redskin fans that are part of that special family,” the post finished.
In the post, Buck included photos of himself from his playing days.
