Day 2 Mini-Camp Leftovers: ‘We Like Ike’

Posted by Brian Tinsman on May 6, 2012 – 9:40 am

Even with the big acquisitions of Pierre Garçon and Joshua Morgan in free agency, one of the biggest additions to the receiver corps in 2012 is expected to be position coach Ike Hilliard.

Redskins fans will remember Hilliard as a member of the New York Giants from 1997-2004, during which he caught 690 yards and seven touchdowns against the Redskins.  Hilliard will be the first to tell you that his 12-year career was founded on sound fundamentals, something that he was brought here to impress on the Redskins wideouts.

You don’t see it in the videos, but Hilliard likes using tennis balls and small cones in his drills.  More on that later.

Time will tell how he adjusts to the job, but he’s a fast-riser in the coaching ranks.  After retiring as a member of Bruce Allen’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Hilliard got right back on the sidelines, volunteering with Jim Haslett’s UFL Florida Tuskers in 2009.  He was promoted to wide receivers coach in 2010, and made it back to the NFL as an assistant receivers coach with the Dolphins last year.

Only four years removed from his playing days, he’s now in Washington to prepare the next generation.  Here’s footage of him working with the rookies and first year players at this weekend’s rookie mini-camp, courtesy of Redskins.comTV’s Larry Michael:

    Thanks for posting videos viewable on the iPhone. Any 80th anniversary uniforms slated to be unveiled?
