206 days. That’s how long its been since the Washington Redskins played a game.
While the players won’t take the field to play any opposition for a full 60-minute game until August 7 (New England Patriots at FedExField), they are in Richmond to start the 2014 season with training camp. Starting tomorrow, the players will give it their all on the Bon Secours Training Center practices field, hoping to lay that first brick to an eventual NFC East crown–the second in three seasons–and more.
Over the last few hours, some of the players have taken to social media exclaiming their joy of being back in the Commonwealth’s capital city to get it going again.
Have a look at what they’ve been saying below (click on Instagram photos for complete captions):

Back at Training camp, had an incredible offseason, back to dream-chasing, everyday I get to suit up is a blessing, I'll be grinding everyday trying to keep this dream alive, all the love and support from friends and family is surreal, I will never be able to express the gratitude I have for you guys, I put my heart and soul into this as a form of my appreciation. 2014. Hardbody. Believe.
