Trivia Friday: Redskins, Patriots Make Memorable Trade

As time ticks down to the start of the Washington Redskins’ 2014 Bon Secours Training Camp in Richmond, VA, Redskins Blog will highlight several distinctive facts about training camp.

Today’s post focuses on some history between the Redskins and New England Patriots, a team the Redskins will host joint practices with Aug. 4th-6th.

While the two franchises have not played since 2011, the two were most recently linked during the 2013 NFL Draft, when the Redskins held the Patriots fifth-round selection (No. 162 overall).

For some simple Friday trivia we’re asking you how the Redskins got that pick and who did the burgundy and gold select. The answer might surprise you.

Let’s start with how the Redskins got the draft pick.

Looking to reshuffle personnel after the 2010 season, the Redskins shipped off defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth after disappointing in two seasons with only 6.5 sacks to New England in exchange for a draft pick.

The draft pick turned into promising youngster Brandon Jenkins, a former second-team All-American.

Jenkins, now in his second season, is a key component of the Redskins’ talented linebacker corps.
