–Social Media Recap: 12th Annual Redskins Harvest Feast
–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.”

Redskins Kids Club Tackles Mini-Combine

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on February 22, 2014 – 2:28 pm


While NFL prospects underwent a gauntlet of drills at the NFL Scouting Combine Saturday in Indianapolis, more than 100 members of the Washington Redskins Kids Club ran through a mini-combine at the team’s indoor practice facility in Loudoun County, Va.

Tight end Niles Paul waited at the 7-yard line with football in each hand and told his receiver to score. A girl in neon rainbow-colored leopard socks reached for Paul’s pass as she dove onto the cushy red mat in the end zone and completed the final stage of an obstacle course. Read more »

You might be asking yourself, is this guy luring us to a football blog with puppies? Yes. Yes I am.

Look at that face. You can thank long snapper Nick Sundberg, his love for animals and his iron stomach for that photo to power you through the work week.

Last Sunday, during the bye week, Sundberg attended the WOOFSTOCK pet festival in Ashburn with Josh Morgan and Larry Michael in support of community animal shelters.

There he found Pistachio, a beagle pug mix.

Near Or Far Nick Sundberg Loves To Snap

A few weeks back The Redskins Blog had a piece on Nick Sundberg’s trip across Europe filled with famous monuments and pictures of the long snapper trying out some customary traditions on the other side of the pond.

Sundberg is known for his incredible strength and willingness to do whatever it takes to help his team win. His Herculean courage was on full display when he shook of a broken arm (a necessary body part of long snapping) in the team’s 40-32 Week 1 victory over the New Orleans Saints.

That takes an unprecedented level of passion that only a competitor like Sundberg possess– and a no days off mentality.

Check out this photo gallery of Sundberg, with pigskin in hand, showing Europe the art of long-snapping.

Redskins Social Media Weekly Spotlight

Posted by Jared Ross on July 1, 2013 – 3:00 pm


As we wait for football to start back up, in what I like to call the offseason’s halftime, or the time between Organized Team Activities and training camp, the players are enjoying their time away from the football field.

Thankfully, with calendar’s flipping over to the month of July, we can gladly say that football is back this month!

Last week’s installment of our Social Media Spotlight series covered Josh Morgan’s fluffy new workout partner, a young Chris Baker, another chapter in the life of Mr. Outdoorsman (Reed Doughty) and more. If you did not get a chance to read last week’s Social Media Spotlight, check it out here.

In this week’s edition we follow players through different continents, their quests for treasure and more.

Today, we will discuss defensive lineman Adam Carriker’s treasure-seeking dog, offensive lineman Nick Sundberg’s travels through Europe, wide receiver Aldrick Robinson’s dedication to his community, offensive lineman Chris Chester’s thoughts on the offseason and offensive lineman Josh LeRibus’ trip to a Goo Goo Dolls concert.

Redskins Social Media Weekly Spotlight

Posted by Chris Herting on March 18, 2013 – 3:28 pm


Welcome to your weekly Redskins Social Media Spotlight, where we highlight the trendy topics and social media campaigns going on this week in Redskins Nation. Check it out and make suggestions below.

As we continue to bring you updates each week to let you know how Redskins players are spending their offseason, we’re happy to inform fans that players are beginning to slowly trickle back in to Redskins Park after a few months away following the season. Believe it or not, the draft is a little more than a month away which means that OTAs and Redskins football is just around the corner.

In the meantime, we’re here to at least try and keep you engaged until that time comes.

You can check out last week’s Social Media Spotlight which debated the hot topic of whether it’s acceptable for men to wear yoga pants at the gym (still undecided) as well as recapped LB Ryan Kerrigan and K Kai Forbath’s golf outing, QB Robert Griffin III and Baylor’s upset over #4 Kansas, and LB London Fletcher announcing, via Twitter, his plans to return.

This week, we’ll catch a glimpse of WR Dezmon Briscoe working out and working hard, including what Griffin III thinks about the wide receiver’s workout. We’ll also take a look at DE Jarvis Jenkins’s inspirational quote, Kai Forbath’s comments on the return of LS Nick Sundberg and P Sav Rocca, and, last but not least, we’ll bring you WR Pierre Garçon’s take on March Madness.

Plus, does anyone remember the movie Space Jam? We sure do and so does G Chris Chester. We’ll let Chris give his thoughts on Bill Murray’s role in the film and more. Welcome to this week’s Redskins Social Media Weekly Spotlight!

Griffin III Wants To Convert LeBron James

Last night, the Washington Redskins defeated the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants at home to extend their season-long winning streak to three games.

Tonight, several Redskins players were on hand to watch the struggling Washington Wizards take on the defending NBA champion Miami Heat in D.C.

Not many gave the Wizards a chance to pull off the upset; but, wouldn’t you know it — Washington was victorious once again.

The Wizards earned their second win of the season by hanging on to defeat the Eastern Division-leading Heat, 105-101, in front of a standing-room crowd at the Verizon Center.

Among those taking in the game from the Redskins were quarterback Robert Griffin III, outside linebacker Brian Orakpo, wide receivers Leonard Hankerson, Santana Moss and Joshua Morgan, tight end Fred Davis and long snapper Nick Sundberg.

Griffin III — who was sitting courtside next to the Wizards’ bench with his fiancée, Rebecca, to his right and Orakpo two seats to his left — tweeted this immediately after the game:

Sundberg Feels Good After 1st Game Back

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 19, 2012 – 5:49 pm

Washington Redskins longsnapper Nick Sundberg on Sunday appeared in his first game since suffering a broken arm Week 1 against the New Orleans Saints.

Sundberg — who suffered the injury just before halftime but decided to play the rest of the game — said he felt like his old self Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, who the Redskins defeated 31-6.

The injury occurred when, after snapping the ball to punter Sav Rocca, Sundberg threw out his arms to block. His left arm was squeezed between a helmet and a facemask and the bone snapped.

It didn’t take long for Sundberg to test his arm for the first time on Sunday, as he was sent out to snap for an extra-point attempt after the Redskins scored not even two minutes into the game.
