[With 24 days until the start of training camp, we take a look back at the career of punt blocking guru Bill Malinchak. Malinchak made a career out of recording timely blocked punts against some of the greatest teams of his era.]
As the Washington Redskins prepare for training camp in 24 days, new special teams coordinator Keith Burns is inheriting a special unit that features record breaking kicker Kai Forbath and five-year veteran boot Sav Rocca.
What remains to be seen, however, is who will fill the void left behind by 2012 Pro Bowler and special teams captain Lorenzo Alexander. Alexander, spent the first seven years of his career in our Nation’s Capital after going undrafted out of California, but left the Burgundy and Gold during the offseason.
Long before any current crop of Redskins or modern-day NFL players graced the gridiron on Sundays, there was one guy who made a career out of highlight reel special teams plays—Bill Malinchak.

As we wait for football to start back up, in what I like to call the offseason’s halftime, or the time between Organized Team Activities and training camp, the players are enjoying their time away from the football field.
Thankfully, with calendar’s flipping over to the month of July, we can gladly say that football is back this month!
Last week’s installment of our Social Media Spotlight series covered Josh Morgan’s fluffy new workout partner, a young Chris Baker, another chapter in the life of Mr. Outdoorsman (Reed Doughty) and more. If you did not get a chance to read last week’s Social Media Spotlight, check it out here.
In this week’s edition we follow players through different continents, their quests for treasure and more.
Today, we will discuss defensive lineman Adam Carriker’s treasure-seeking dog, offensive lineman Nick Sundberg’s travels through Europe, wide receiver Aldrick Robinson’s dedication to his community, offensive lineman Chris Chester’s thoughts on the offseason and offensive lineman Josh LeRibus’ trip to a Goo Goo Dolls concert.

Last year when the Washington Redskins claimed their first NFC East title of the 21st century, the offense was all the talk of the town.
Behind a record-setting duo of first year players Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris, the Burgundy and Gold’s offense finished in the top-five in total offense for the first time since their last division crown in 1999.
While Griffin III and Morris should be credited for their contributions in turning what appeared to be a lost season into one with January football, it’s a man on the other side of the pigskin that ESPN’s Dan Graziano has as the Burgundy and Gold’s “can’t-lose player” for 2013.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was in Las Vegas for the National Atheltic Trainers Association convention this past week, enjoying some time away from the field before the start of training camp later this month.
Being that he was in a city known for its excitement, the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year decided to stay a few extra days for some pre-wedding festivities.
Check out these photos and tweets of the Burgundy and Gold’s quarterback exciting weekend on The Strip.

With the clock striking midnight earlier this morning, it officially means that football is back this month!
In 24 days the Washington Redskins will relocate to the heart of Virginia’s Capital for the first practice of training camp.
While all eyes will be on the possible return to the gridiron of one Robert Griffin III, NFL.com’s Chris Wesseling will be keeping a close watch on a man who started 14 games last year but is rarely thrown into “must watch TV” discussions—defensive end Jarvis Jenkins.
Jenkins is one of his top-40 players he sees “Making The Leap” in 2013.
