The Pro Football Hall Of Fame on Tuesday evening announced 26 semifinalists for the Class of 2015 and former Washington Redskins offensive lineman Joe Jacoby is still up for possible inclusion.

Jacoby — a Louisville product — signed with the Redskins in 1981 and spent his entire 13-year career in Washington.

From 1983-86, Jacoby earned four Pro Bowl berths and was named a first-team All-Pro on two occasions.

A member of the most famous offensive line in NFL history — “The Hogs” — Jacoby won three Super Bowls before retiring following the 1993 season.

This marks the fifth time he’s been a semifinalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Check back with Redskins.com later for more on Jacoby’s possibly enshirement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Inaugural ‘Movies With Morris’ A Success

Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris in June hosted the inaugural “Movies With Morris” fundraiser. Hosted at the Alamo Drafthouse in Loudoun County, Va., the event was designed by Morris to combine his passion for watching movies and his work in the community.

That night, Morris, along with teammates Robert Griffin III, Ryan Kerrigan and Nick Sundberg, enjoyed one of his all-time favorite movies –“Fantastic Mr. Fox.”

On Tuesday, shortly after dancing beside hundreds of local elementary schoolers, Morris presented grants to four Loudoun County schools on behalf of the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation and Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association.

“Movies With Morris” raised $5,000 for each school, while the Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association contributed $2,500 as well.

The funds presented to each school will be used towards physical activities and healthy lifestyle education.

“Daddy does kindergarten!” Fletcher captioned the photo.

Fletcher, of course, spent the final seven seasons of a magnificent 16-year career with the Washington Redskins. Originally a college free agent, the John Carroll product would sign with the St. Louis Rams before the start of the 1998 NFL season.

He would go on to start 215 straight games — the last 112 with the Redskins — before retiring following the 2013 season.

Since calling it a career, Fletcher’s been spending a lot of time with his wife and three kids:
