Dan Steinberg: Even the Redskins Get Summer Internships

These Redskins defensive linemen have kept themselves busy in the offseason. Phillip Daniels, of course, entered power-lifting competitions. Kedric Golston has pursued NASCAR fandom; look for him at Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600.

And Demetric Evans? Why, he’s in Week Two of his summer internship at Infinity of Tysons Corner, naturally. His first few days have included tutorials on the dealership’s workflow, distribution of labor and management principles, mostly in one-on-one sessions with the general manager, which would be his first interaction with one of them in a while. Thursday, he’ll start spending a day in each department, beginning with the repair shop. Does this mean he knows how to fix cars?

“No, I don’t,” Evans said. “But that’s the Ford Theory. Ford didn’t even know anything about cars, but he knew people who did.”

I wonder if he wears his intern ID to the bar after work…
