Welcome to your weekly Redskins Social Media Spotlight, where we highlight the trendy topics and social media campaigns going on this week in Redskins Nation. Check it out and make suggestions below.
As we continue to bring you updates each week to let you know how Redskins players are spending their offseason, we’re happy to inform fans that players are beginning to slowly trickle back in to Redskins Park after a few months away following the season. Believe it or not, the draft is a little more than a month away which means that OTAs and Redskins football is just around the corner.
In the meantime, we’re here to at least try and keep you engaged until that time comes.
You can check out last week’s Social Media Spotlight which debated the hot topic of whether it’s acceptable for men to wear yoga pants at the gym (still undecided) as well as recapped LB Ryan Kerrigan and K Kai Forbath’s golf outing, QB Robert Griffin III and Baylor’s upset over #4 Kansas, and LB London Fletcher announcing, via Twitter, his plans to return.
This week, we’ll catch a glimpse of WR Dezmon Briscoe working out and working hard, including what Griffin III thinks about the wide receiver’s workout. We’ll also take a look at DE Jarvis Jenkins’s inspirational quote, Kai Forbath’s comments on the return of LS Nick Sundberg and P Sav Rocca, and, last but not least, we’ll bring you WR Pierre Garçon’s take on March Madness.
Plus, does anyone remember the movie Space Jam? We sure do and so does G Chris Chester. We’ll let Chris give his thoughts on Bill Murray’s role in the film and more. Welcome to this week’s Redskins Social Media Weekly Spotlight!
Every now and then we all need that extra kick, the extra motivation to get up out of bed in the morning and tackle whatever the day may bring. Like the movie Office Space we all get a case of the Monday’s from time to time. If that statement rings true for you, Jarvis Jenkins provides the wherewithal to fight the “I really don’t feel like going to work today” feeling.
Keep grinding, Jarvis, and HTTR!
Following his inaugural season in Washington, Kai Forbath was one-third of a special teams crew consisting of P Sav Rocca and LS Nick Sundberg whom could bank on the fact he would be returning. So he was ecstatic to hear about the return of both Rocca and Sundberg! #ThreeManWreckingCrew
Next up: Griffin III likes seeing his receivers working hard. In fact, he liked seeing Briscoe’s Twitter status enough that he deemed it worthy of a RT.
Keep up the good work, Dezmon!
It’s fair to say that we all remember the high school or college days where we’d keep an eye on the March Madness Basketball Tournament in class, and so does Pierre.
You’re not alone, Pierre! Now we just do it at work. #NeverTooOld
Did you know that Chris Chester was a Bill Murray fan? Neither did we, but needless to say we can all appreciate the movie Space Jam.
Bill Murray's performance in Space Jam way underrated.—

In dedication to Chris Chester, here’s a short clip of Bill Murray getting ready to take on the aliens of Moron Mountain. Enjoy!
