While the offseason is meant for players to rejuvenate from the grind of a long season, Redskins fullback Eric Kettani has been doing the opposite. In fact, he may be doing even more traveling now then during the season where players travel at least 10 times, including preseason games.
In February Kettani, who attended college at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, was the guest of honor at the 59th Annual Touchdown Club of Annapolis Football Awards banquet. The Touchdown Club of Annapolis is a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing youth programs at the community and school levels in and around the city.
His return to Maryland, however, has been just one of several states that Eric has set foot upon this offseason.
Find out why Eric has been racking up frequent flier miles and how his night back in the Chesapeake Bay State went here:

Washington Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman is a 10-year veteran at the professional level. Currently, Grossman joins AP Rookie of the Year Robert Griffin III, Kirk Cousins and Pat White to form one of the best quarterback units in the league.
Before the Redskins drafted number 10 and number 12 last April at the 2012 NFL Draft, Grossman was the man behind center for the Burgundy and Gold during the 2011 campaign, starting 13 games and throwing for over 3,000 yards.
Grossman was drafted by the Chicago Bears with the 22nd overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft after a stellar career at the University of Florida.
In his three years in Gainesville, Grossman threw for nearly 10,000 yards and 77 touchdowns. Even after deciding to forgo his senior season, Grossman ranked in the top-10 SEC history in passing yards at the conclusion of his junior season. No small feat when you consider just how dominant the conference has been for the last few decades.
Recently, the Gators honored the 2001 Heisman Trophy finalist for his days in the Sunshine State. Find out what accolade number 8 can add to his collection here:

Make your own audition memories by getting tickets to the final auditions, this Saturday from 2-4 p.m.
No matter how much you love your job, there are times when the boss asks you to complete a task or make a business trip you’re not excited about. There are even instances in my line of work where I am called upon to complete the not-so-glamorous tasks.
This is not one of those moments.
Last Saturday, I was enlisted to judge the opening round of the 2013 Washington Redskins Cheerleaders auditions. The prospective First Ladies of Football arrived early at FedExField and prepared themselves accordingly, while I waited in the Cheer Studio inside the South Field Tunnel.
A complementary Starbucks breakfast was ready for the judging panel, which totaled roughly 20 Cheerleader coaches, trainers, alumni and enthusiasts. There were approximately 30 women that tried out to be ambassadors and 148 hopefuls for the cheer squad.
I felt a little bad eating coffee cake as the candidates entered in groups of six, but grabbed my clipboard and got ready to make some tough decisions. Read more »
