His best trait?

“Aggressiveness,” Ogbuehi said.

The numbers at tight end aren’t in his favor. That’s the arithmetic of an NFL roster that’s as cold as a post-practice ice bath. There’s presumptive starter Fred Davis. Logan Paulsen signed a contract extension during the offseason. Niles Paul is entering his third season. And the Redskins drafted fleet Jordan Reed from Florida in the third round.

None of that bothers Ogbuehi.

Reminders of the tenuous nature of his NFL career are everywhere. They include his bio on the team’s website. No picture. No background. Just his name and number and height and weight and school. Something that could disappear in an instant.

When the NFL run ends, in a day or a decade, Ogbuehi is prepared to make the delayed trip to pharmacy school. Until then, well, he keeps repeating that word. Aggressiveness.

That’s life in the shadows of NFL training camp. A lone player in a T-shirt walking toward the locker room without attracting cameras or turned heads, carrying his jersey and his dream.
