Brad Labanow, 28, has a tattoo that leaves its mark deeper than the skin. Labanow, who lives in Marana, Ariz., has a 1970’s-esque Redskins logo on his right shoulder.

And even though he was wearing a vintage Redskins shirt around downtown Phoenix during the week of Super Bowl XLIX, he said he does not need to wear a shirt or hat to show his love for the team.

His decision was easy.

“I was like, ‘Yep, that’ll work. I’ll do that,’” said Labanow, pulling up his sleeve over the weekend to expose the tattoo to the Arizona sun. “Even though we haven’t done well since ’92 it seems like, it’s still something I’m proud of. It’ll always be on there.”

No. 46 in the burgundy and gold helmet on Sunday got one final opportunity to break a few tackles before officially getting his offseason underway.

Redskins running back Alfred Morris, playing for Team Carter, played in his second-straight Pro Bowl, collecting 29 yards rushing and receiving in the 32-28 Team Irvin victory at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

Here’s a recap of the Redskins’ social media activity during the game, beginning with an injury update on left tackle Trent Williams, who was supposed to play Sunday for Team Irvin in his third-straight Pro Bowl appearance:

This just keeps getting better and better.

Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson is in Miami this weekend, and will serve as a celebrity judge for the Miss Universe contest.

Pretty cool gig in itself, if you ask me, but he’s also getting the chance to rub elbows with some other hot shots.

Above, via denisewhite_eag on Instagram, Jackson is seen with boxing legend Manny Pacquiao, businessman Donald Trump and skateboarder and TV star Rob Dyrdek.

Below is the original post from tonight, in which Jackson and Pacquiao posed for a photo together at dinner earlier in the night:

It takes a lot of hard work for a professional football player to stay fit and healthy.

For the Washington Redskins, the team has two individuals who ensure the guys are able to eat right on a daily basis: executive chef Jon Mathieson and team dietician Rob Skinner.

On Saturday, Mathieson and Skinner were special guests at the annual NBC4 Health & Fitness Expo in Washington, D.C., where they demonstrated a meal that they would cook for Redskins players at the team’s cafeteria in Loudoun County, Va.

Dexter Manley, Gary Clark, Ken Harvey and Ricky Ervins certainly gave it their all each and every time they took the field for the Washington Redskins, so they were more than happy to spend some time on Saturday with hundreds of locals willing to give something, themselves.

The four Redskins alums were special guests at Saturday’s Inova Blood Donor Service’s blood drive at the team’s indoor practice facility in Loudoun County, Va.

Those who came out to give blood on Saturday were treated to photos, autographs and smiling faces from the former players, who talked about the importance of such an event.

“Donating blood is something that you don’t think about until you need it and sometimes you don’t realize how valuable it is until you need it,” Harvey told Redskins.com. “Hopefully no one does, but if you do, these people are real heroes because they’re taking the time to donate blood.”

You can read more about the event by clicking here — which includes a full photo gallery — but here’s a social media recap from the @Redskins accounts:

Washington Redskins defensive lineman Chris Baker, along with the Chris Baker 92 Foundation, hosted a book drive event at a nearby pizza restaurant in Ashburn, Va., Monday night.

Baker, whose foundation promotes children’s literacy programs in Washington, D.C. area schools, collected kids books and posed for photos with fans who were encouraged to bring books for students in grades K-5.

Joining Baker was wide receiver Pierre Garcon:

Last month, Baker visited the Wheatley Education Campus and spoke to fourth and fifth graders about the importance of literacy, bringing in a computer program to the campus as well.

This month, the program will be implemented in Windsor, Conn., and The Chris Baker 92 Foundation Reading Challenge will take place in January of next year.

“It’s something they can do here [or] at home,” Baker said in November. “They can take it home to have their parents help them out with their education programs. It’s something to help them reach their scores in reading and writing.”

Some fans need the perfect setup to watch the Washington Redskins play each week.

Carroll Nickens, who shared some photos on the “2014 Redskins Nation” Facebook group, certainly does.

She makes sure that people who come through her living room know what team she supports, covering up her couch with a burgundy blanket and seven different styled team hats.

She also has a Redskins helmet tucked away in the corner, too.

A few weeks ago we caught up with Christopher Bishop, who had turned one of his rooms into a Redskins “man cave,” painting his walls with team logos. People have also gotten creative with their personal offices, turning their bland cubicles into bursts of burgundy and gold, like this office we found in October.

Keep sending us your pictures of your colorful dedication!

Redskins Team Store Hosts John Riggins Meet-And-Greet

Posted by Jake Kring-Schreifels on December 13, 2014 – 6:14 pm

Legendary Washington Redskins running back John Riggins provided fans passing by the Tysons Corner Mall team store the unique opportunity to get an autograph and chat with the Super Bowl XVII MVP Saturday afternoon.

Riggins, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, sat with sharpies and signed jerseys, posters, and footballs for those who purchased tickets. For many, Riggins’ game-clinching 4th-and-inches touchdown run against the Dolphins has solidified their fandom and became a canonized play in their sports history.

As a fan brought him the poster of the iconic run, Riggins, who played for the Redskins from 1976-1985, joked that the image had been reproduced so much that now you can’t see Dolphins head coach Don Shula’s angry face in the background.

“Some of [people’s] greatest moments are wrapped around their football team. To be a part of that is pretty special,” Riggins told the Redskins Blog. “You get to meet a lot of interesting people so that’s what makes it kind of fun and seeing how you’ve impacted a lot of lives. I never think of it that way, but the truth of the matter is, it does happen.”

Rob O’Neill, Doug Williams; Doug Williams, Rob O’Neill

By now, you’ve probably already heard that Rob O’Neill — the Navy Seal who reportedly shot and killed Osama bin Laden in 2011 — is a huge Redskins fan.

In fact, this season alone, O’Neill has already given the team a rousing pregame speech the night prior to their Week 11 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (one that resulted in several selfies with players), and then was seen roaming the sidelines on gameday.

Well, O’Neill late Wednesday unleashed another classic Redskins-related selfie — but, this time, it was with an all-time great, and not a current player.

O’Neill tweeted a photo he took with legendary Redskins quarterback Doug Williams, a current team executive and, of course, Super Bowl XXII’s Most Valuable Player.

I bet this was a huge thrill for a lifelong fan like O’Neill.

But, knowing Williams, it’s pretty much guaranteed the thrill was all his.
