Despite the forecasted heavy downpours across the DMV, rookie defensive backs Bacarri Rambo and Phillip Thomas spoke with a conglomerate of local media and one lucky fan to spill the beans on being with the Redskins as well as some of their off the field passions.
So sit back and listen to what two-thirds of the 2013 rookie DB trio had to say in the newest installment of the team’s Google+ Hangout series after the jump.
There’s no better way to spend a rainy afternoon.

Over the next few weeks we will be looking back on some Redskins greats for their heroics on the field as well as off of it. With 42 days until the start of training camp I looked back at the magnificent career of Charley Taylor.
The current Washington Redskins squad is one of the most exciting teams to watch in terms of pure offensive power thanks in large part to the fireworks of duel-threat Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris’ touchdown swings.
Behind the shadows of the two second year stars is a man who has been through it all with Redskins Nation over the past eight seasons—Santana Moss.
Moss became a fan favorite the minute he arrived from the Big Apple after the Redskins acquired him via trade with the New York Jets.
If Moss can rack up another 2,000 yards before hanging up his gear, he will pass Taylor for second place on the Redskins all-time receiving yards list—an incredible feat when you remember the greatness of the 1984 Hall of Fame inductee.
This is the (brief) story of No. 42.

Mike Shanahan will be spending the rest of the offseason doing everything he can to impress NFL coaching staffs.
You read that correctly ladies and gentlemen.
Mike Shanahan is working to show off his ability to be an effective passing threat and run-blocker.
Now you’re all probably wondering the same thing I am–‘What is Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan doing blocking and catching passes?’
Well, he isn’t.

For decades football facemasks remained relatively conformed in terms of the position that you played. Often, offensive lineman wore full facemasks to protect their eyes while running backs would sport a sleeker two bar look to complement their position duties (you wouldn’t want a view of bars blocking your vision).
Nowadays though with the NFL’s increased awareness on ensuring the safest game possible game, players are sporting quite the elaborate facemasks regardless of where they line up on the field.
NFL.com released a gallery of the “wildest facemasks” in the league and per the norm a Redskin is found.
