A steady, annoying drizzle was the weather theme at Redskins Park Monday morning, so head coach Mike Shanahan decided to bring the team’s first round of organized team activities inside.
It was the first time Shanahan has been afforded that luxury. The team’s brand new indoor training facility was just recently completed, and its purpose is ideal for days like Monday.
“Perfect timing, eh?” second-year outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan said after Monday’s activities. “This is what we built it for, for days like this when the weather’s not cooperative.”
