Offseason conditioning starts today, something that always sounds more exciting than it actually is. (Unless you’re exceedingly fond of watching people work out, in which case I guess the start of offseason conditioning would be a really big deal.)
So far, attendance seems strong. It’s tough to get an accurate roll call because of the way guys come through in shifts, but a lot of the speculative concern over who was going to show up seems to have been unfounded. I’ve already seen Clinton Portis, Albert Haynesworth, LaRon Landry, and Carlos Rogers for myself. Jason Campbell is here as well, and — despite the recurring jokes about oversleeping — so is Fred Davis.
I don’t know if new head coach Mike Shanahan will achieve his goal of 100% attendance, but he’s off to a pretty good start as far as I can tell.
Some links and assorted news:
- In case you missed it, the team re-signed another of their own restricted free agents this weekend, OL Will Montgomery
- In honor of the 75th NFL draft next month, the league is asking fans to vote for the most valuable draft pick of all time. Redskins nominees are: Champ Bailey; Sammy Baugh; Larry Brown; Darrell Green; Russ Grimm; Chris Hanburger; Paul Krause; Art Monk; Jerry Smith; Charley Taylor. I would argue that the most valuable pick would be a late-round selection who because an all-star, but … well, that’s not how they’re doing it. Anyhow, go vote.
- Speaking of voting, congratulations to ExtremeSkins member (and inadvertent blog contributor) Pez, who has been nominated for membership in Pro Football’s Ultimate Fan Association, PFUFA. It’s a pretty big honor for Pez, who would take his place alongside the Hogettes and Chief Zee if he’s approved. Voting takes place during the Hall of Fame induction weekend in Canton.
