The Redskins had their first dose of offseason conditioning this morning at Redskins Park, as 61-0f-63 players reported for voluntary workouts.
Players were generally upbeat, and it was a first sighting for some players in quite some time. The highlight of the morning was London Fletcher on the premises to sign his brand new contract with the team. Players joked and high-fived with their captain in between workouts, and players hung around after the workouts to catch up on the offseason.
Several players tweeted their enthusiastic feeling about being back to work on a beautiful day:
Very good first day of team workouts!—

It was good to see everyone, and players looked to be in pretty good shape. Jonathan Crompton and Roy Helu were both sporting improved facial hair styles, a testament to their offseason grind. Chris Neild’s beard looks stronger than ever, giving fans of the blog lots to look forward to in training camp.
At least one player got married over the offseason, and one budding star is recently engaged–soon to be married (sorry ladies).
