williesmith+takobycofieldWillie Smith and Takoby Cofield grew up less than an hour from each other in eastern North Carolina. Now they’re on the same NFL team.

The two offensive linemen are vying for spots with the Washington Redskins.

Smith, who played college football at ECU, grew up Kenly and attended North Johnston High School. He’s played in the NFL since 2011 having spent time with the Raiders and Chargers in between two stints with the Redskins.

Cofield, a Duke product, laced up his spikes at Tarboro High School. He was signed as an undrafted free agent in May.
