The Redskins strapped on helmets for 11-on-11 play, which had some great plays…and not so great plays. Quarterback John Beck is adjusting to the rookies, but looks to be really in sync with his veteran receivers.
The John Beck-to-Fred Davis connection looks crisp, and Beck is throwing darts over the middle. This is only the first practice, but this could finally be the year that Davis becomes a factor in the offense.
New quarterback Ben Chappell, on the other hand, looks shaky in his first day with the team. As I mentioned before, his over-the-top motion and long windup aren’t ideal for the pro game, and he’s struggling to hit his targets. Could be first day jitters, but it stands out in contrast to Beck.
Fullback Mike Sellers had a little trouble with false starts this morning, and left tackle Trent Williams was early a few times as well.
Brandon Banks is getting some good looks at wide receiver right now. With the offseason addition of four receivers and counting, he’s going to have to prove himself to be more than a returner.
Coaches have the units jogging on and off the field in between plays. This is a good day to get players back in shape and the temperatures are climbing.
