Wilson Dances To Help Fight Obesity

Posted by Chris Herting on March 13, 2013 – 7:52 pm


Earlier today, CB Josh Wilson represented the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation by participating in National Health Through Fitness Day in Washington, D.C. as part of Capitol Hill’s campaign to “Get America Moving to Improve Health”.

The program’s goal is to help overcome America’s obesity crisis which falls in line with the Redskins Charitable Foundation’s commitment to health and wellness through the NFL’s Play 60 initiative.

There was much anticipation for Josh’s arrival and the students wasted no time challenging him to a game of Dance Dance Revolution.

What To Watch For: Maryland Pro Day

While most of the NFL is tuned into the lukewarm stove of free agency, front offices are also keeping an eye on amateur talent, via school pro days. In our own backyard, the University of Maryland holds its in-house workouts today over in College Park.

For the non-rabid Terps fans, Redskins.com intern Eric Avissar gives a preview of who to watch for coming into Wednesday’s workouts:

Matt Furstenburg, tight end:  As the only Terrapin invited to the Combine, Furstenburg did plenty to help his draft stock, running his 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds and logging a 35.5 inch vertical jump.  His speed and agility should allow him to get open against NFL linebackers.  Furstenburg was a three-year starter for Maryland, and had his best season statistically as a junior catching 31 passes for 348 yards and two touchdowns.  In order to firmly establish himself as a blocking tight end in the NFL, Furstenburg (6-3, 242 pounds) will need to get stronger and prove he can gain leverage against bigger opponents.

After signing his contract, Golston took to Twitter (@Golston64) to thank the fans and celebrate his return to the Burgundy and Gold: Read more »

Saul Family Took The NFL By Storm

In 1982 a legendary group of Redskins’ offensive lineman were assembled and during a training camp drill, coined ‘The Hogs’ by o-line coach Joe Bugel.

The name caught on with players and fans, giving an otherwise unheralded group the recognition they deserved.

‘The Hogs’ would prove the weight of their nickname was no joke, winning Super Bowls XVII, XXII, and XXVI.

For Ron Saul, one of the original Hogs, a victory over the Dolphins in Super Bowl XVII was the perfect ending to a 13-year NFL career. Even though he was injured earlier in the season and had to watch the game from sidelines, he remained a constant presence with the team.

At 6-2, 255 pounds, the grizzled veteran had seen it all. Football was a major part of Ron Saul’s life–and his family’s as well. Read more »
