High school career

Redmond attended Manassas High School in Memphis, Tennessee, where he was the starting quarterback for the Tigers team documented in the Oscar-winning documentary film Undefeated. Later, he transferred to East High School in Memphis, Tennessee, where played both sides of the ball and on special teams.[1]

Redmond was rated as a four-star recruit by 247sports.com[2] and Rivals.com,[3] and a three-star recruit by ESPN.[4] Redmond's scholarship offers included Cincinnati, Clemson, Georgia, Illinois, Louisville, Memphis, Miami, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Purdue, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and Virginia. Redmond committed to Mississippi State on August 1, 2011,[2] and signed with the Bulldogs the following February, despite a late push from Georgia.[5]

Redmond's recruitment led to Mississippi State being placed on probation after it was revealed that a booster provided Redmond with cash, a credit card, and a $2,000 discount on a car.[6] The university formally disassociated the booster. The NCAA declared Redmond ineligible for the 2012 season and the first five games of the 2013 season. Redmond was also required to repay $2,660 in impermissible benefits.[7]

College career

Sophomore season (2013)

Redmond made his college debut against Bowling Green in October.[1] He recorded 23 tackles that season as a reserve defensive back.

Junior season (2014)

Redmond played in every game for the Bulldogs in 2014. He caught the game-clinching interception in the end zone on the final play to preserve the Bulldog's 34–29 upset win over LSU.[8] He repeated the feat a few weeks later with an end zone interception in the final minute of a 17–10 win over Arkansas.[9] Redmond finished the season with 51 tackles and 3 interceptions.

Professional career

Prior to the draft, Redmond was projected as one of the top cornerbacks in the 2016 NFL Draft by Mel Kiper Jr.[11] and as a first-round pick by Todd McShay,[12] who remarked that Redmond showed "excellent quickness and agility, which is why he gives up little separation in man-to-man coverage."

2014 Mississippi State Bulldogs football team

The 2014 Mississippi State Bulldogs football team represented Mississippi State University in the 2014 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The team was coached by Dan Mullen, who was in his sixth season with Mississippi State. The Bulldogs played their home games at the newly expanded and renovated Davis Wade Stadium in Starkville, Mississippi and competed in the Western Division of the Southeastern Conference (SEC).

The 2014 season was one of the most successful seasons in Mississippi State's 110-year football history. In mid-October, they shot to #1 in the polls for the first time in school history, and the highest that any FBS team in Mississippi had been ranked at that late date in the season in half a century. They ultimately finished 10–3, the second 10-win regular season in school history. They netted a berth in the Orange Bowl, the second major-bowl appearance in school history, where they were defeated by Georgia Tech.

2016 NFL Draft

The 2016 NFL Draft was the 81st annual meeting of National Football League (NFL) franchises to select newly eligible American football players. As in 2015, the draft took place in Chicago, Illinois at the Auditorium Theatre and Grant Park. The draft began on Thursday, April 28 with the first round, and ended on Saturday, April 30. The Tennessee Titans, the team with the fewest wins in the NFL for the 2015 season, traded the right to the top pick in the draft to the Los Angeles Rams, the first time the top pick was traded before the draft since 2001 when the San Diego Chargers traded their first pick to the Atlanta Falcons. Ohio State became the second school to have three players drafted in the top ten and to have five players drafted in the first round.

2016 San Francisco 49ers season

The 2016 San Francisco 49ers season was the franchise's 67th season in the National Football League, the 71st overall, the third playing its home games at Levi's Stadium, and the only season under head coach Chip Kelly. The season saw the 49ers attempting to rebound from their 5–11 record the previous year. However, this season would prove to be even worse than the previous, as the 49ers finished 2–14, with their only wins coming against their division rival Los Angeles Rams. The 49ers' record was their worst since 2004, when they also finished 2–14 (both wins that season were against the Arizona Cardinals). The 49ers' 1–7 home record tied the worst home record in franchise history (not including the strike-shortened 1982 season). As a result, the 49ers fired head coach Chip Kelly and general manager Trent Baalke.The 49ers defense also set an NFL record by allowing a 100 yard rusher in seven straight games and easily finished last in the league in rush defense.

2017 Kansas City Chiefs season

The 2017 Kansas City Chiefs season was the franchise's 48th season in the National Football League, the 55th as the Kansas City Chiefs, the 58th overall, the fifth under head coach Andy Reid, and first under general manager Brett Veach.

2018 Green Bay Packers season

The 2018 season was the Green Bay Packers' 98th season in the National Football League, their 100th overall and their 13th and final season under head coach Mike McCarthy. After missing the playoffs for the first time since 2008 and losing quarterback Aaron Rodgers to injury, the Packers were aiming to improve their 7–9 record from last season but finished with a 6–9–1 record.

For the first time since 2007, Jordy Nelson did not play for the Packers as he signed with the Oakland Raiders via free agency during the offseason.

On January 7, 2018, Brian Gutekunst was named the new general manager, after Ted Thompson took over as the senior advisor to football operations.On December 2, 2018, after a 4–7–1 start, Mike McCarthy was fired hours after the Packer's Week 13 loss to the Arizona Cardinals and Joe Philbin was named as the interim head coach. After a loss to the Chicago Bears in week 15, the Packers were eliminated from the postseason. This was the first time the Packers missed the postseason back to back years since 2005 to 2006, which were also the first two seasons of the Aaron Rodgers era and the beginning of the Rodgers/McCarthy era. This was also the first time the Packers suffered from back to back losing seasons since 1990 to 1991.

2019 Green Bay Packers season

The 2019 season will be the Green Bay Packers' upcoming 99th season in the National Football League, their 101st overall and their first under new head coach Matt LaFleur. After suffering back-to-back losing seasons in for the first time since 1990–91 and missing the playoffs back-to-back seasons for the first time since 2005–06, the Packers will look to improve on their 6–9–1 record from last year, and attempt to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2016.

Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers are a professional American football team based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Packers compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the league's National Football Conference (NFC) North division. It is the third-oldest franchise in the NFL, dating back to 1919, and is the only non-profit, community-owned major league professional sports team based in the United States. Home games have been played at Lambeau Field since 1957.

The Packers are the last of the "small town teams" which were common in the NFL during the league's early days of the 1920s and '30s. Founded in 1919 by Earl "Curly" Lambeau and George Whitney Calhoun, the franchise traces its lineage to other semi-professional teams in Green Bay dating back to 1896. Between 1919 and 1920, the Packers competed against other semi-pro clubs from around Wisconsin and the Midwest, before joining the American Professional Football Association (APFA), the forerunner of today's NFL, in 1921. Although Green Bay is by far the smallest major league professional sports market in North America, Forbes ranked the Packers as the world's 26th most valuable sports franchise in 2016, with a value of $2.35 billion.The Packers have won 13 league championships, the most in NFL history, with nine pre–Super Bowl NFL titles and four Super Bowl victories. The Packers won the first two Super Bowls in 1967 and 1968 and were the only NFL team to defeat the American Football League (AFL) prior to the AFL–NFL merger. The Vince Lombardi Trophy is named after the Packers' coach of the same name, who guided them to their first two Super Bowls. Their two subsequent Super Bowl wins came in 1996 and 2010.The Packers are long-standing adversaries of the Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings, and Detroit Lions, who today comprise the NFL's NFC North division, and were formerly members of the NFC Central Division. They have played over 100 games against each of those teams through history, and have a winning overall record against all of them, a distinction only shared with the Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Cowboys. The Bears–Packers rivalry is one of the oldest in NFL history, dating back to 1921.
