Former NFL Pro Bowler Charles Mann has joined Verity Commercial, a Reston-based commercial real estate services firm, the Washington Business Journal reports.

Since retiring from football in the 1994, Mann, 56, helped broker major deals, including the lease for Southland Industries at the Brick Yard Business Park in Prince George’s County, Maryland and the $7.9 million sale of Franklin Farm Medical Office, according to the report.

Before turning commercial real estate, Mann was a former Washington Redskins defensive end and played 12 years in the National Football League. After graduating from Strayer University he shifted to business development by working for companies like Mechanical Design Group, according to the report. He launched a government contracting firm called Charles Mann Enterprises three years ago.

He will handle sales and business development at Verity Commercial.

    Charles Mann played for the Skins from 1983-1993, then 1 year for the 49’s

      I looked twice for some mention of his ‘Skins time. Shook my head ruefully. The guy is a mini-celebrity in the region because of that. It’s a cultural gap, multiplied by an age gap, wrapped in a lack of basic research. I see here a future career at CNN where they can just howl at the moon about Trump all day. Relevance and significance are so tedious!

    You might want to do a little more fact checking. Charles Mann played for the ‘skins for the vast majority of his career during the wonderful Joe Gibbs era. He was with the 49ers for just a moment at the end of his football career.

    Um, the reason Mann is setting up the business here is because of his identity in the Washington area as a Pro Bowl Washington Redskin. After you fix the story to reflect that, you can delete this comment. If you stick with 49ers, make it San FranCISco.

    Mr. Mann was not a pro bowler, was he?

    I seem to recall him playing football.
