Teammates on the field, best friends off it.
Washington Redskins defensive ends Stephen Bowen and Jason Hatcher spent a good portion of the bye week together with their wives.
Hatcher posted on Instagram several pictures of their time together, where among other things, they played Phase 10:
Bowen’s wife, meanwhile, posted this beautiful photo from the resort they were staying at:
2014 marks the sixth season in which Hatcher and Bowen are teammates. The first five (2006-10) were in Dallas. During their few seasons not as teammates, though, Bowen admitted he wouldn’t talk to Hatcher when the Redskins and Cowboys were getting ready to play each other.
Before his first game against the Cowboys in 2011, Bowen told the media that he was taking the same approach former Redskins running back took when he played against the Arizona Cardinals for the first time — remain quiet against his former teammates in the week leading up to the game.
“I’m definitely take the Tim-approach,” he said. “I don’t want to give them a vibe for how we feeling, I don’t want to give them any kind of intuition into anything.”
But now back together again, their bond is as strong as ever with the Redskins.
