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.
If you missed it, make sure you go back and read last week’s spotlight. It looked at a little (non-serious) tiff between two roommates, Mother’s Day wishes from players to their Mom’s, tight end Logan Paulsen‘s mistaken identity and more!
But moving on to this week and what Redskins players are doing and saying in the socialsphere.
Organized Team Activities (OTAs) start today and that means one thing Redskins fans, football is back and the season is just around the corner. All of the players have returned to Redskins Park for three days of OTAs (Monday, Wednesday and Thursday). The exact practice time’s for the next two weeks of practice sessions has yet to be determined but, if we base it off of years prior, should have a somewhat similar look to this week’s sessions.
Here’s a basic overview of the schedule:
- First Week: May 20-23
- Second Week: May 28-30
- Third Week: June 3-6
So without further ado, we bring you this week’s Social Media Weekly Spotlight, stacked full with an inspirational quote from defensive lineman Jarvis Jenkins, an update on the progress of quarterback Robert Griffin III (from Griffin III himself), offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus visits RGIII in Texas, and safety Reed Doughty goes fly fishing with his son.
It’s fair to say that most fans are eagerly anticipating the healthy return of Robert Griffin III. So far all we have to go by is the word of doctors and similar past injuries that other players around the league have suffered. But last Friday Griffin III tweeted a message updating Redskins fans on his progress.
Treadmill Run…..Threw the football around & a couple roll out throws…
But some take Friday off…—

As mentioned above, OTAs are underway and offensive tackle Adam Gettis is excited to be back at the Park with his teammates.
OTAs start today. Lets get it 🙏🙏🙏—

There’s not much else to say, Gettis pretty much sums it up perfectly.
During the latter parts of last week, defensive lineman Jarvis Jenkins had a message for not only Redskins fans but for people everywhere to “make a difference today”; a message that transcends time.
He made no mistake, he woke you up this am to make a difference whether u think so or not. Take advantage of it 🙏—

Safety Reed Doughty took his four year old son fly fishing last week…long story short, his son apparently is a natural.
Many o-linemen protect their quarterbacks on Sundays from opposing defenvise linemen. Tyler Polumbus, however, goes the extra mile (or a few thousand miles). This past week, Polumbus paid Robert Griffin III (BLVD) a visit.
