With just one solid swing over the weekend, Washington Redskins wide receiver Andre Roberts sank a hole-in-one on the golf course.

As seen in the video above, Roberts pridefully walks up to the hole and grabs the ball. According to the caption, it’s the second time he’s knocked in the golf ball in just one shot.

The first occasion happened 17 months ago:

Keep doing your thing, Andre! Maybe we’ll see a third hole-in-one at the Ryan Kerrigan Leukemia Golf Classic in May.

Redskins tight end Niles Paul, who re-signed with the team on Friday, caught up with Larry Michael, Voice of the Redskins, on “Redskins Nation” to discuss his excitement about returning with the burgundy and gold.

A lot of that excitement was channeled toward new offensive line coach Bill Callahan.

Paul played football for four years at Nebraska, where Callahan coached him during his first season with the Cornhuskers in 2007.

Now, they’ll get to reunite.

While Washington Redskins linebacker Trent Murphy had offers from several different schools to play college ball, he ultimately chose to go to Stanford University to play under Jim Harbaugh.

For two seasons, Murphy strengthened his craft under Harbaugh’s tutelage before the coach went on the San Francisco 49ers.

Now, some five years later, Murphy and Harbaugh, who is now the head man for the University of Michigan’s football program, crossed paths out in Arizona.

Oh, and if you’re wondering why Harbaugh is wearing an Oakland Athletics jersey, it’s because he was coaching first base yesterday during the team’s spring training game vs. the Los Angeles Angels.

Rich Williams, Kansas Guitarist, Wife Debbie, Talk Redskins And Football

Rich Williams, the original guitarist from the classic rock band Kansas, has done many interviews over his lifetime. But he and his wife, Debbie Williams, were intrigued when The Redskins Blog reached out to ask them not about music, but about football.

“It’s funny with all of the hype and anticipation of the Kansas documentary release this month, a request for my Redskins story is a surprise,” Debbie wrote before she and Williams spoke to us over the phone.

The couple lives in Atlanta, Ga., where the band has relocated over the years, but Debbie, a native of Cheverly, Md., unquestionably, has remained devoted to rooting for the Redskins.

“My father was an extreme Redskins fan, and not like the kind that went to games, he was poor, but [his] family was Redskins’ lovers and it just trickled down to the rest of us,” Debbie said.

“One of the earliest memories he has was listening to the Redskins on the radio,” she said. “[The team] was kind of something that he and I had, we bonded over that, and that’s why it means so much to me.”

Williams never had the same kind of football devotion, growing up in Topeka, Kan., but supports the Chiefs and has adopted the Falcons in his new city. However, living with his wife has made him root for the Redskins on game days.

“He does love the Redskins,” Debbie said of Williams. “He doesn’t have a choice because he knows if they lose I’m going to be in a bad mood.”

“I was in Dallas at the airport,” Williams said, “and I went into this Cowboys store and I took a couple of pictures with this Cowboys hat on. We had a serious talk about that.”

According to Debbie, football season is the best time to be around the band. Everyone has their own team they root for and it’s always a topic of discussion, especially when they’re on tour.

“We see the affection people have — there’s a need to have loyalty to your team or your group,” said Debbie, who has “Hail to the Redskins” on her iPod. “I see the same intensity to your home team as you [give] to the band and the music that you hold.”

Williams said he’s mesmerized by how his wife picks out fans while the band tours. Driving in their car, which boasts a few Redskins magnets, Debbie will wave to others with jerseys on and always finds new people to interact with over the country.

“If you’re not born into it, you don’t really understand it,” Williams said.

He, along with the original band members, are preparing for the release of their new documentary called “Miracles Out Of Nowhere.”

“It’s about the original band, telling our story coming out of Topeka, Kansas,” he said. “It talks about the first five albums, coming from obscurity and the unlikely miracle of us succeeding, climbing up the mountain.”

So, you can expect to hear “Carry On My Wayward Son” and “Dust in the Wind” among their other classics in the film. It just might take some nudging from Debbie for Kansas to try out a version of “Hail to the Redskins.”

When Akeem Davis’ daughter, Carsyn, was born last August, he couldn’t muster any words to explain the moment.

Now, six months and a whole lot of growing later, the Memphis product is not only able to speak at length about his daughter, but said she’s “as tough as a two-dollar steak.”

“She’s growing like weeds,” he told Redskins.com’s Andrew Walker recently. “I walk in the house and she’s in her bouncer smiling, brightening up my day. She’s at the age now where she’s getting personality; she knows what she wants when she wants it. And when she wants it, she’s going to get it.”

The proud papa recently changed his Twitter profile picture (@Da_DREAM47) to Carsyn as well:

While Davis may be part of the exclusive fraternity of NFL players, he’s like any other parent of a young child. Sleep is very hard to come by.

“Not getting as much as I like, but I’ll sacrifice at the end of the day,” he said.

Just look at legendary Redskins kicker Mark Moseley’s jeans.

This must have been a special moment for “Grandma,” however, and it appears she didn’t pull a “Lucy” on one of the last straight-on style kickers.

Moseley played over 12 years with the Redskins, and was part of the Super Bowl XVII victory against the Dolphins during the 1982-83 season in which he won the MVP Award. To this day he is the only kicker to take home such honors.

Swaggy.  Big Swaggy. Big Bake. Big Daddy.

Those are just four of the many, many nicknames that are attached to Washington Redskins defensive lineman Chris Baker.

How exactly can one guy get so many different names?

Some were self-appointed, and some were given.

“My good friend down John Walker down in Baltimore, he gave me the name ‘Swaggy’ when we were playing a video game, and I came to the locker room and kept calling myself ‘Swaggy,'” he began. “And I think a reporter heard it, and the next thing you know there was an article up and it was called ‘Chris Swaggy Baker.’ Ever since then it’s pretty much stuck with me.”

That swag, of course, has translated to the field as well.

It’s time to let your voice be heard again, Redskins Nation.

Over the next week, fans can vote on the top 100 plays of the 2014 season.

While all 32 teams are represented on the list in a variety of ways, two Redskins plays made the list and will fall somewhere in the top 100.

The first play up is Colt McCoy eluding multiple Colts to find tight end Logan Paulsen for a touchdown:

“They had both of my first reads covered so I really didn’t have anybody open,” McCoy said of the Colts’ defense. “So I tried to make one guy miss and then one guy became three guys and I knew I couldn’t take a sack. The smart play probably would have been to throw it away, but at that point in the game, we needed a touchdown, we needed a spark, something. …We found a way in and I’m happy that Logan scored.”

The second is DeSean Jackson taking a play action pass from Robert Griffin III only to have Pro Bowler Trent Williams provide an incredible open field block:

Remember to vote for both plays now!
