Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 28, 2014 – 4:52 pm

Blood is burgundy for a reason.

On Saturday, Washington Redskins players and coaches, in conjunction with Inova Blood Donor Services, partook in a blood drive at Redskins Park.

Part of Inova’s “Give Local, Save Local” campaign, the blood drive drew citizens of the DMV and beyond looking to support those in need to include head coach Jay Gruden.

“Gave some blood Saturday which was exciting,” Gruden said Monday before Brian Orakpo’s fourth-annual Leukemia Golf Classic at Trump National Golf Club. “Got to see some people and help some people. It’s a great opportunity to help people that desperately need it.”

Here’s Gruden shortly before needle’s first poke:

Combine Look Back: The Class Of 2012

Although 40-yard dashes, broad jumps and bench press reps don’t really give us an idea of a prospect’s viability as a football player, the physical tests can give a glimpse at a man’s raw athletic potential and ability to thrive in a competitive atmosphere. Over the course of the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine, the Redskins blog will take a look back at how Washington’s past three draft classes fared in Indianapolis.

In 2008, David Gettis caught the second completion of Robert Griffin III’s decorated college career. On Tuesday, the Redskins announced a roster move reuniting the quarterback and the 6-foot-3, 220-pound receiver.

Washington signed Gettis to a reserve/future contract, adding to the list of seven players the team announced last Friday. Read more »

Robert Griffin III Surprises Offensive Linemen With The Gift Of Xbox One

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 24, 2013 – 2:25 pm

Robert Griffin III backed up his black sedan to the double doors at the entrance of Redskins Park, hopped out and plopped a red and white stocking cap on his head.

The offensive line anxiously waited in the lobby while the quarterback grabbed handfuls of gratitude from within the trunk.

On Christmas Eve, Griffin III surprised his protectors with green bags full of Xbox One consoles. Read more »

Waiter Ryan Kerrigan Gets A Huge Tip

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on December 3, 2013 – 11:07 am

“Would you like a crabcake?”

The burly waiter extended a silver tray of hors d’oeuvres, but the patrons were more interested in his autograph.

A black, rectangular name tag reading “Ryan” was affixed to a Ruth’s Chris apron over a crisp white dress shirt and a diagonally-striped gray-and-white tie.

Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan and nine of his teammates hustled for tips Tuesday at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Arlington, Va., as part of a Celebrity Waiter night to raise funds for Kerrigan’s Blitz For The Better Foundation.

By the end of the night, Kerrigan’s group had raised $108,000 for seriously ill, special needs and physically challenged children throughout the greater Washington, D.C., area. Read more »

Redskins–We Have A Bobsled Team

If you saw rather large men running down the streets with a bobsled this weekend in matching uniforms it may or may not have been the Washington Redskins. After all I’ve heard summer is the best time to practice for the Winter Olympics.

Sure it felt more like the middle of July than September, but as Derice, Sanka, Junior and Yul taught everyone in the mid 90’s, it doesn’t matter how high the mercury rises on the thermometer as long as you have your team.

So as the rest of the team wore various (and somewhat hideous) Hawaiian shirts to an island themed party, Josh LeRibeus, Adam Gettis, Kirk Cousins, Ryan Kerrigan and Tom Compton found some extremely large spandex body suits and paid homage to Cool Runnings.  Mon trust me when I say you’ll never see a pushcart team like this anywhere else.

Guards LeRibeus, Gettis Wait Their Turns

Posted by Brian Tinsman on August 7, 2013 – 10:08 am

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Redskins’ quarterback play was not exactly spectacular in 2011, but Rex Grossman and John Beck didn’t receive much help from their offensive line.

Injuries–coupled with a high-profile suspension–exposed a severe lack of quality depth. Offensive line coach Chris Foerster was forced to shuffle the lineup more than a half-dozen times that season.

It thus made perfect sense for Mike Shanahan to select two versatile offensive lineman in the 2012 draft. Enter guards Josh LeRibeus (SMU, 3rd round) and Adam Gettis (Iowa, 5th round), who would ostensibly crack the Redskins starting lineup sooner rather than later.

But a funny thing happened on the way to the stadium. Read more »
