In his glory days, Redskins defensive lineman Kedric Golston could bench 500 pounds, so he told Crystal Ball and Chris Paul on the set of “Redskins Late Night.”

“That’s a Smart Car,” Paul exclaimed when hearing the weight.

“That was a younger version of myself,” Golston said. “Now it’s just trying to maintain my strength flexibilities so that I can prevent injuries and be ready to compete on Sundays.”

He should be aware that new Redskins strength and conditioning coach Mike Clark was once a competitive power lifter, with experience in Olympic training regimens.

I’m sure he’ll provide Golston some new tips on lifting heavy objects, just not any Smart Cars.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Celebrates One-Year Twitterversary

Posted by Stephen Czarda on February 11, 2015 – 3:14 pm

Dale Earnhardt Jr. is celebrating his one-year Twitterversary in grand style.

The NASCAR driver and diehard Washington Redskins fan is at Twitter’s New York City location, where he’s had a few bites out of an enormous cake that features his first tweet and took a group photo where a Redskins hat is shown.

Since we’re on the subject of Twitter and Junior, now is the perfect time to show some of his tweets about the Redskins over the last year:

Also, just for reference, here’s Earnhardt Jr.’s first ever tweet that happened just hours after rolling into Victory Lane following a Daytona 500 victory:

Keep tweeting away, Dale!

Sammy Baugh, Art. Monk, Darrell Green and Sean Taylor.

You really couldn’t go wrong with any of the four players that were a part of Redskins.com’s fan poll that asked who is your favorite first-round draft pick in franchise history, but in the end Taylor took home a majority of the vote at 44 percent.

1st-pick poll

Taken in the first-round of the 2004 NFL Draft, Taylor appeared in 53 games with the Redskins recording 299 tackles, 12 interceptions, eight fumbles forced and a lifetime of memories.

Baugh, Monk and Green are certainly fan favorites as well, as they share a common bond both in the Redskins’ Ring Of Fame and the Pro Football Hall Of Fame.

Baugh was selected with the sixth-overall pick in the 1937 NFL Draft. It’s always fun to bring up his stats as he really was a do-it-all player.

Take the 1943 season as example of his versatility.

That year he completed an NFL-high 55.6 percent of passes, recorded 11 interceptions and averaged an NFL-leading 45.9 yards per punt.

Monk — the franchise’s all-time leader in receptions (888) and receiving yards (12,026) — was selected with the 18th-overall pick in 1980 and played his first 14 seasons in burgundy and gold.

He recorded 1,000-yard seasons three straight years starting in 1984, appearing in three Pro Bowls during that span as well.

Green’s career with the Redskins, which started with being picked 28th-overall pick in the 1983 NFL Draft, has been well documented, as he spent his entire 20-year playing career here.

Last month we mentioned that Robert Griffin III would be auctioning off a team-signed cast, the one that shielded his dislocated ankle suffered in the second week of the season.

Well, the deadline to bid is quickly approaching.

Fans who want to take home one of the more unique pieces of sport memorabilia — the cast includes signatures from Alfred Morris, DeSean Jackson, DeAngelo Hall, Pierre Garcon and many more — have until Friday at 6 p.m. to place their final offers.

The winning proceeds, which currently stands at $1,035, will go to Griffin’s charity “Family of 3,” a foundation that works to support the dreams of people who need help achieving them.

I’m still waiting to see how the winner displays this on the mantle.

Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan on Tuesday evening was among the many sport stars at Sports Illustrated‘s party celebrating the publication’s annual swimsuit issue.

In the photo above, you can see Kerrigan sitting together with Carolina Wozniacki, one of the top tennis players in the world.

Wozniacki has won more than 440 matches with 22 tournament victories in singles action, while she’s also earned two doubles titles as well.

Kerrigan, of course, was drafted by the Redskins in the first-round of the 2011 NFL Draft and had his best year to date in 2014, racking up a career-high 13.5 sacks.

If more photos come out we’ll be sure to update you, but it already seems like it was a pretty fun night.

Corpus Christi. Dallas. Philadelphia. San Antonio. Indianapolis. St. Louis. New Orleans. Montreal.

Offensive lineman Ty Nsekhe is a well-traveled player, and now he’ll add Washington, D.C., to the long list of cities where he’s played.

The 6-foot-5, 325 pounder, whom the Redskins signed on Tuesday, played for Texas State and was signed by the Corpus Christi Sharks as an undrafted free agent in 2009.

After playing in the AF2, an indoor developmental league, Nsekhe joined the Arena Football League and stayed for the next three years before he was signed by the Colts in August 2012. He was cut a month later but was picked up by the Rams, where he appeared in two games during the 2012 season.

During his time in the Arena Football League, Nsekhe, because teams must become creative with their personnel, caught 13 passes for three touchdowns in his career.

You can watch a few in this highlight video. Also, notice how Nsekhe takes defenders and slams them over the wall until the end of the play.

Honoring Ed Sabol: The Hiring Of George Allen

Ed Sabol was one of a kind. His revolutionary work with NFL Films changed the way football is seen on television and through online video.

Over the coming days, The Redskins Blog will look back at some of Sabol’s work with NFL Films by showing segments involving the Redskins from years past.

Up first is a piece on the hiring of legendary head coach George Allen, which you can see above.

Allen took over in 1971 and his impact was instantly felt, as he guided the Redskins to a 9-4-1 record. Then in 1972, the Pro Football Hall of Famer led the Redskins to their first Super Bowl appearance after accumulating an 11-3 regular-season record, which, at the time, was the most wins in a single season in franchise history

Allen finished his seven-year run as the Redskins head coach a 67-30-1 regular-season record, and many of the franchise’s greatest moments during that span can still be seen to this day thanks to Sabol.

Check back with The Redskins Blog tomorrow as we’ll have a piece on Vince Lombardi’s time in Washington.
