Jasper update

Posted by Chris Brown on August 11, 2012 – 9:44 pm

Head coach Chan Gailey was asked for an update on how G Mike Jasper is faring in camp and the preseason. Here was his response.

“Michael is struggling,” said Gailey. “Michael has got to learn his assignments. He’s got to learn to play physical every snap. A big, strong guy that’s got a lot of talent as we all know, but he’s got to be more physical and he’s got to continue to push through on assignments.”

It’s certainly going to be an uphill battle for Jasper to make the roster. Chad Rinehart is the primary reserve guard. Then there’s second-year man Colin Brown, who plays guard and center, sixth-round pick Mark Asper who plays guard and center, but has had his ups and downs too. Keith Williams is another guard who spent time on the team’s practice squad as well. There’s a lot of competition there.

The NFL Nike uniforms are new to NFL players already in the league, but for Bills sixth-round pick Mark Asper it’s all too familiar.

Asper’s Oregon Ducks are the favorite of Nike Co-founder and chairman Phil Knight, an Oregon native, who outfits the college football team with a myriad of different uniform combinations. Asper shared which Oregon uniform he liked the most.

“The all black,” he said. “They’re the most slimming. I actually really like the throw back that we wore against University of California a couple of years ago. The dark almost forest green and yellow because those were my high school colors. It was like wearing my high school uniform at the University of Oregon. It was fun.”
