comment by Kirk Cousins (not deaf)

a posting on a Minnesota Vikings fan-based web site

Vikings news from other sources and news from around the rest of the
league:

From CBS Minnesota, Kirk Cousins said that in order to lead, you have to
‘let your voice be heard’. I would have asked him what he would do if
one of his teammates was deaf. I mean, he could use sign language, but
that technically isn’t letting your voice be heard. I guess we can’t
draft any deaf offensive players while Cousins is here.

note:

whoever made that posting does not know what he is talking about!

#1
Derrick Coleman, an offensive player at fullback, is deaf. His
deafness was never an issue with the NFL teams he was with.
His only issue is that fullback, a position he plays, is
an obsolete position.

#2
Over the years NFL teams have looked over some Gallaudet offensive
linemen, still trying to figure out how to deal with the offensive
cadence and audibles. Players NFL teams have looked over was
Bill Zachariasen (late fifties/early sixties), Dan Fitzpatrick
(mid-seventies) and Shannon Simon, Gallauadet’s only first team
national NCAA-III All-American.

random deafsports thoughts

If one loves the history of deaf major league baseball
players, then one cannot show amazement with the
New York Giants baseball team in the 1901 season.

That team had three deaf pitchers in that season!

It was Dummy Taylor (who had a good career in the
majors), Dummy Leitner and Dummy Deegan.

Both Leitner and Deegan did not perform that well
in the majors, and were let go. They were probably
of semi-pro baseball skills level.

It is strange to have three deaf pitchers
with one team one season and then never again.

Was the manager John McGraw hoping to attract
a good crowd of deaf fans by having these two
additional deaf pitchers?

Anyway New York Giants became San Francisco
Giants.
