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.
This week’s Social Media Weekly Spotlight is particularly exciting because, guess what Redskins fans, players are back! Yes, the players returned this morning for Phase One of their offseason workout program.
Beginning at 8am this morning, players were in the facility working out as part of the strength and conditioning portion of workouts which will last all week long. We combed Twitter to get the players reactions and there appears to be a grand sense of excitement to return and begin building off of last year’s NFC East Championship run.
But before we dive into this week’s spotlight, let’s quickly recap last week which tapped into DE Adam Carriker’s WrestleMania predictions, DE Stephen Bowen’s great bowling event for charity, and WR Pierre Garçon and QB Kirk Cousins’ shout-outs to their Mom’s. You can read it in its entirety here.
So here it is, this week’s social media weekly spotlight, highlighting the return of players to Redskins Park, Kirk Cousins furniture shopping for his new apartment, reactions to yesterday’s exciting finish at the Masters and Adam Carriker’s quote of the day!
As you already know, today marks the beginning of strength and conditioning workouts and players are excited to be back with their teammates getting a head start on the 2013 season!

Earlier we tweeted (@Redskins) a picture of Kirk Cousins roping his furniture down to the bed of his truck using who knows how many bungee cords. Well, he needs more furniture for his apartment and he’s back at it seeking YOUR advice.
If you’re a golf fan then yesterday’s Masters Tournament had yet another exciting finish between two great golfers in Adam Scott and Angel Cabrera. No Australian had ever won a Masters green jacket…until yesterday. Here’s RB Evan Royster’s reaction while watching the two golfers square off in a two-hole playoff.
