    You will be missed Lorenzo. Straight up football player who did whatever he was asked and did it well. Great character. Good luck!

    This man deserves to get paid. Awesome player who made incredible sacrifices to constantly change positions and was amazing in the community. I wish him luck.

    Geez the Bills could have used him. @sfootballady52 🏈

    This is sad and his versatility cannot be understated. Skins picked him up as a UDFA guard. Then moved him to the other side to play DT in Gregg Williams’ 3-4. Then outside to DE when Haynesworth came. When Haslett switched to the 3-4, they had LoZo stand up as an OLB, then when Rob Jackson did OK in camp, the moved LoZo inside (and just in time because Fletcher’s wheels started to fall off for the first time in his career). His main job was special teams and he was huge for the Skins on punt stop and kick stop tackling (he and Niles Paul). Plus he’s a Cal grad with excellent grades. Really a shame that the Skins let him go. I’m certain he could have kicked and punted in a pinch.

    congrats alexander you will be missed. heads up to arizona…..u guys got a good player who can do alot of different things but until you do something about your QB situation you guys are going nowhere.

    You mean to tell me that they didn’t have any more punt returners they could have cut to keep LoZo around???

    I hate this loss. Absolutely hate it.
