Morris, Cousins, Polumbus Attend International Justice Mission Event

Happy Birthday, Alfred Morris!
More On New Cornerback Justin Rogers

Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris, quarterback Kirk Cousins and tackle Tyler Polumbus, along with their three wives, attended the annual International Justice Mission fundraising event Thursday night.

IJM, a non-profit founded in 1997 and led by Gary Haugen, seeks to bring justice to countries with residents living in poverty. The theme of Thursday’s event focused on impunity, an issue affecting areas who have corrupt or lack of police authority in which criminals don’t suffer the consequences of illegal acts. For Cousins, who has attended each of the last three years, the cause is an important one.

“It’s an organization I like to spotlight because I just think they do a really good job of really maximizing their resources they have to make a real difference,” Cousins said. “I keep in touch with them year round.”

When Cousins was a rookie, Polumbus, who had been an active member and donor to IJM previously, asked if he’d like to join him at his table in an effort to fill some of empty seats. Cousins, who already knew about the organization from his days in high school, jumped at the opportunity and was delighted IJM had its headquarters in Washington, D.C.

“It’s an amazing organization that my wife and I have supported for six or seven years now,” Polumbus said. “They work with anything from sex trafficking to people who are wrongly imprisoned, or shouldn’t be imprisoned, and land grabbing cases. This is all across the world. Truly, I think they’re one of the most powerful and influential organizations in rescuing people out of situations that are terrible.”

Cousins vowed in high school that IJM would be the first charitable cause he would donate towards, once he had the resources. Now, he attends and gives to the event yearly, and is hoping he and his wife can someday travel abroad to India, the Philippines, or Central America to experience how IJM works in the field.

“IJM seeks to bring justice by going in there, investigating undercover, and prosecuting [criminals] so when their consequences are brought to the surface, hopefully it will not only free a few people but it will create a culture of change, of justice, and a lack of impunity,” said Cousins, who might pursue similar kind of work once his football career ends.

“When I come face to face with it is when I’ll really be moved.”

Redskins Talk Thanksgiving Traditions, Plans

–Families Thankful For 12th Annual Redskins Harvest Feast

According to Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, the pressure is on quarterback Kirk Cousins to host a successful Thanksgiving dinner. According to Cousins, the pressure will mostly be on his wife who is in charge of cooking the turkey.

“I just got married this summer so I guess this will be the first time we’re starting our own tradition together as a married couple,” said Cousins. “Knowing my wife, in only the four or five months that we’ve been married, she’s lived up to the hype. She’s done a really good job cooking. So no doubt, Thanksgiving for her is game day.”

Along with Kerrigan, Cousins will host several other teammates and their wives as well as his own family members.

He’ll try to find some time to peek in on some games, too.

“It should be fun hosting a few of the other guys on the team, have some fun and fellowship and watch some football,” said Cousins. “It’s the 5 “F’s” in Thanksgiving that I love: football, family/friends, fun, good food, and a four-day weekend so I’m looking forward to that.”

Running back Roy Helu Jr. will also be with his wife Thursday after the team finishes practice. He’ll go to his sister’s house and eventually celebrate the holiday at his friend’s while unable to be home in California where he grew up.

“You kind of just adapt and make a lot of food,” said Helu, who promises to watch a lot of football as well. “We haven’t really started a tradition or anything.”

“I like the leg of the turkey, the dark meat,” he added.  “I want to try a deep-fried turkey because I haven’t tried one before. My pet peeve is cold Thanksgiving food. My favorite dessert is pumpkin pie or pecan pie– I switch in between– and cheesecake.”

Tight end Jordan Reed doesn’t plan to have the television on when he makes the trip to his brother’s home in Baltimore. He’ll be happy to lie around, talk to family and enjoy the macaroni and cheese his mother, the specialty cook, will pass around the table.

Kerrigan meanwhile is looking forward to his aunt’s sweet potato casserole and linebacker Trent Murphy expressed his excitement to try the fried turkey long snapper Nick Sundberg is preparing.

Wide receiver Santana Moss will also be with family Thursday, including his kids, whom he hasn’t seen for a while.

“I’m always thinking about the life that we get to live, that we don’t appreciate much,” he said. “I know some of us do. A lot of us don’t. We all complain, but at the end of the day it could be worse. So you’ve got to appreciate and love up your family.”

Posted by Stephen Czarda on May 15, 2014 – 11:15 am

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It may be hard to believe, but it’s has indeed been two full years since the 2012 draft class was just starting their collective nascent career.

Headlined by quarterback Robert Griffin III and bolstered by the hard-nosed efforts of Alfred Morris and quality fill-in appearances from quarterback Kirk Cousins, the 2012 class is certainly one that lives in a special place in Redskins Nation’s heart.

With the 2014 rookie minicamp getting ready to start-up, here’s a look back at just some of the highlights from the 2012 class’ first season:

OK, so we know Kirk Cousins has switched his uniform number from 12 to 8.

And we know Robert Griffin III isn’t giving up No. 10 anytime soon.

But what about the uniform number for recently-acquired Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy?

Well we’re here to help you get the answers you so rightfully deserve, so here you go.

Kirk Cousins Switches Back To Trusty No. 8

There’s been lots of chatter lately about Redskins uniform numbers — who’s wearing what, who’s not wearing what, who wants to wear what, etc. — so this topic certainly isn’t just simple offseason fodder (and see the bottom of this post for more uniform number updates, including DeSean Jackson’s).

But when two players make an arrangement for a uniform number that benefits children, well, that’s just the deal of all deals.

That’s what’s happened between third-year Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins and recently-acquired wide receiver Andre Roberts

Kerrigan Draft Day

They laughed. They cried.

OK, they didn’t really cry, but several Redskins players and team personnel Wednesday evening enjoyed a special screening of the movie “Draft Day,” which is due to be released in theaters nationwide April 11.

I won’t be like that guy on Facebook that spoiled the “How I Met Your Mother” finale, so if you’re looking for a full recap of the flick, you’re in the wrong place.

But here’s the gist of the movie — which stars Kevin Costner, Jennifer Garner, Denis Leary (and even former Redskins player Terry Crews) — according to IMDb.com:

Combine Look Back: The Class Of 2012

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 21, 2014 – 1:42 pm



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.
