As most of you already know, social media is more than ever beginning to play a huge role in our lives and in the lives of your favorite Redskins players. It was no different yesterday when quarterback Robert Griffin III and fellow Redskins teammates welcomed the newest members of the team, David Amerson and Jordan Reed, to Washington, D.C. last night via Twitter.
With two picks late last night and five picks again today, Head Coach Mike Shanahan and his staff were busy again today as the team added five talented players to the roster on Day 3 of the 2013 NFL Draft; however, the Redskins front office weren’t the only ones turning their attention to the draft.
Redskins players, old and new, went to Twitter to congratulate their newest teammates and we tried to compile as many congratulatory tweets as we could find for YOU!
Fifth round pick, Chris Thompson, is excited to be playing in the Nation’s Capital with Robert Griffin III. But who wouldn’t be excited to play with the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year?
Similar to last night, Adam Carriker wanted to personally welcome all of the newest members (starting with Phillip Thomas) to the team.
DeJon Gomes and Phillip Thomas appear to be on the road towards developing a close friendship.
Brandon Meriweather and Richard Crawford provided somewhat of a congratulatory challenge for fourth round pick, safety, Phillip Thomas basically saying enjoy it now rookie but it’s time to go to work!
Phillip Thomas joined in on the action, giving Redskins fans his sincerest form of flattery before responding to Crawford.

Florida State alumnus and one of Tampa Bay’s all-time leading rushers, Warrick Dunn, offered some kind words that should get Redskins fans excited for fifth round pick Chris Thompson.
Rutgers Football also joined in on the action sending their well wishes to Jawan Jamison, your newest Redskins running back.
So congrats to all five of the newest Redskins players on their accomplishments! We welcome you on behalf of Redskins fans to the 2012 NFC East Champions and to the beginning of what will hopefully be a ceremonious journey.
