Yes, that’s Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather (above), posing in his little league uniform in 1996. Apparently his card was worth $3.50 dollars?

He, like many other players today, posted old photos for Throwback Thursday.

Among the sampling on social media: Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan posted his NFL Combine portrait, shaggy mane and all, while tight end Niles Paul brought back his 40-yard dash photo. Defensive end Jason Hatcher recalled a lighter moment from the team’s bus accident in the middle of the season and running back Silas Redd posted his first collegiate touchdown with Penn State.

Take a look below (linebacker Will Compton had a little fun with one photo). Read more »

Best Of ‘Redskins Late Night’: Andre Roberts Hasn’t Tried His Hometown Delicacy

Maybe this isn’t entirely shocking, but Redskins wide receiver Andre Roberts, born in Alaska, raised in South Carolina, has never tasted liver pudding. Can you blame him?

Apparently “Redskins Late Night” host Chris Paul can.

Liver pudding is a standard hometown meal in South Carolina, though standard probably doesn’t mean the same thing it used to.

“I’ve never had liver pudding,” Roberts said. “I love my South Carolina background. I love where I’m from. But I will never say that I’ve had liver pudding.”

Liver pudding, as defined by Paul, is the “best part of the leftover pig.” It’s essentially the same definition as scrapple, which is a fried breakfast side served with eggs and toast.

The names don’t sound too appetizing. But, I’ll admit, as an eater of scrapple, Roberts is missing out.

Your move, Andre.

Matt Bowen Remembers Training Camp, Joe Gibbs’ Practices

Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan and Larry Michael, Voice of the Redskins, continued their NFL Combine videocast with guest Matt Bowen, a former  NFL safety who played for the Redskins from 2003-05.

Now a writer at Bleacher Report, Bowen discussed his transition into becoming a journalist after his playing days finished.

Then he plucked a few stories from the memory bank.

He helped clarify a story, for instance, about his first training camp with the team in summer of 2003, when he caused a scuffle by placing a big hit on running back Trung Canidate.

“I was a little nuts. I was wired a little differently,” Bowen admitted. “The craziest thing about that is Trung and I were drafted in St. Louis back in 2000 and Trung and I lived together that offseason. We were both free agents and we lived in these apartments off of Route 7.”

The two lived together for two months and were well-acquainted by the time they got to camp. Then he pummeled his former roommate.

“I felt bad about it,” Bowen said. “But we were having one of those practices where the offense was whipping us, the defensive coaches were yelling at us, someone needed to do something. Sometimes you have to start a fight to get people going. Even though it’s your own teammate you’re not trying to hurt them, you’re just trying to energize them.”

A year later, Bowen remembered playing under legendary head coach Joe Gibbs, just starting his second stint with the team. In those days, Bowen described working constant two-a-days and practicing running drills without a running back, analogizing the movie “Hoosiers.”

“I loved Coach Gibbs,” Bowen said. “But his practices were extremely hard.”

One of the benefits of doing embarrassing things as a newborn baby is that you’ll never remember them, plus the fact that your parents are responsible for anything that happens to you.

One of the burdens, and possible benefits, of living in the Internet age is that any of those embarrassing things parents impose upon their baby are usually made public, just moments after they happen.

Take, for instance, three-week old Noah Bauer’s parents, who, seemingly on a whim, turned their newborn son into a very fragile, burgundy-wrapped football and took some epic “live-action” poses with him. Read more »

Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan is at the NFL Combine this week where he’s being joined by Larry Michael, Voice of the Redskins, and Redskins.com’s Andrew Walker for a few videocast segments.

During Thursday’s “Ryan Kerrigan Videocast,” the Purdue product discussed one of the interviews he went through (not with the Redskins) when he was a prospect.

“My chair is in the center of the room, and then spread out in kind of like a hemisphere around me is all the brass from this team — GM, head coach, defensive coordinator, D-line coach,” he began. “They asked me to describe myself on and off the field, and I was like, ‘Well, you know, on the field I’m an aggressive guy, I like to really mix it up, be physical. Off the field, I  like to think of myself as pretty laid back, low-key, nice guy.’ …Well, the defensive line coach said that he didn’t want any…wimpy nice guys playing for him.”

As it would turn out, Kerrigan would be selected by the Redskins just months later, and now, four years later, he’s back in Indianapolis to provide exclusive access from the combine.

Linebacker Will Compton has been having a busy offseason.

A few weeks later, he was out in Japan with tight end Niles Paul for Pro Tour Productions, visiting with military troops stationed in Misawa and helping with some football camps in the area. Plus, taking many selfies.

Last week, back home, Compton was given the opportunity to speak to a wrestling team at local Farmington High School. Read more »

By now you’ve probably heard that Ryan Clark announced his retirement on ESPN yesterday after 13 seasons in the NFL.

Clark, of course, played with the Redskins during the 2014 season, appearing in all 16 regular-season games. But that wasn’t his only time repping the burgundy and gold as he called Washington home during the 2004 and 2005 seasons.

Those that played with Clark during his three seasons with the Redskins reacted via Twitter to the news that he’s hanging up the football gear for good and replacing it with a microphone and some dapper suits:
