Nose tackle Chris Baker chatted with a quartet of Redskins fans today after the conclusion of minicamp as part of the team’s Google+ Hangout series.

No. 92 has been a fan favorite since he was picked up by the Burgundy and Gold at the beginning of the 2011 season.

For you video game diehards out there, I am sure you have been keeping an eye on the festivities at the E3 convention in Los Angeles.

Behind all of the hoopla of several new consoles being highlighted before shipping off to your local malls by the conclusion of the calendar year is another glimpse at what the 25th edition of Madden will bring.

Robert Griffin III may not be on the cover (a positive) of the quarter century version of the annual virtual gaming experience, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t heavily featured in the trailer.
