There’s been lots of chatter lately about Redskins uniform numbers — who’s wearing what, who’s not wearing what, who wants to wear what, etc. — so this topic certainly isn’t just simple offseason fodder (and see the bottom of this post for more uniform number updates, including DeSean Jackson’s).

But when two players make an arrangement for a uniform number that benefits children, well, that’s just the deal of all deals.

That’s what’s happened between third-year Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins and recently-acquired wide receiver Andre Roberts

The Story Behind The Photo Behind DJax

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on April 3, 2014 – 11:45 am

The Redskins official Twitter account announced the team signed DeSean Jackson Wednesday with a picture of the receiver signing his contract from a conference room at Redskins Park.

The photo incited jubilant reaction from Redskins fans, vitriol from Philadelphia and a lot of questions about the photograph on the wall behind Jackson.

I have been in that room many times, and I can tell you the photo behind the receiver was not hung for the occasion. It’s been there since I’ve worked for the team, and it has an incredible story. Read more »

Redskins Players, Coaches Enjoy ‘Draft Day’ Screening

Posted by Andrew Walker on April 3, 2014 – 10:50 am

Kerrigan Draft Day

They laughed. They cried.

OK, they didn’t really cry, but several Redskins players and team personnel Wednesday evening enjoyed a special screening of the movie “Draft Day,” which is due to be released in theaters nationwide April 11.

I won’t be like that guy on Facebook that spoiled the “How I Met Your Mother” finale, so if you’re looking for a full recap of the flick, you’re in the wrong place.

But here’s the gist of the movie — which stars Kevin Costner, Jennifer Garner, Denis Leary (and even former Redskins player Terry Crews) — according to IMDb.com:

Fifty Years Later, Another Splash on April 1

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on April 3, 2014 – 8:00 am

DeSean Jackson closed out his first interview with Larry Michael on “Redskins Nation” with an assurance.

“It is a reality that DeSean Jackson is a Washington Redskin,”Michael said. “It’s not April Fools, man,” Jackson said. “We’re here.”

Although the team did not officially announce signing Jackson until the afternoon of Wednesday, April 2, reports of the news first surfaced late Tuesday night. The Philadelphia Eagles cut Jackson on March 29, making the three-time Pro Bowl receiver available for Washington’s wooing.

On April 1, 1964 – 50 years earlier to the day – the Eagles traded a Hall-of-Fame quarterback to Washington, and Sonny Jurgensen really did think it was an April Fools gag according to an excerpt from Jim Gehman’s book “And Then Gibbs Said To Riggins…”
