Redskins Preparing for Season Now that Training Camp is Over


news and informationbusiness,health,entertainment,technology

The Washington Redskins ended training camp on Sunday, and have now turned their full attention to getting ready for preseason games as the season opener fast approaches. If you want to bet on Washington this season, check out the Redskins betting lines to win.

After closing camp, head coach Jay Gruden said he felt the team had a very good camp and he is excited to see how it translates on the field. Gruden said they got to evaluate a lot of talent and they will continue doing so until the end of the preseason when they have to make their final cuts.

A few Washington players suffered injuries during camp, which means the team will have to evaluate more players to figure out which ones can fill in for their injured players on a temporary basis. Players like DeAngelo Hall, Sua Cravens, Josh Doctson, and Jamison Crowder are expected to be kept out of preseason games to give them time to recover from their injuries.

Yeah, yeah, yeah… before you even start, I did this graphic up to pay homage to Sean Taylor, not to exploit him or his good name.

Cravens wore number 21 at USC.

It’s not likely Cravens will actually ever see himself in the number 21 of the burgundy and gold – nor will anyone else – so I hope there’s no feathers ruffled with a little bit of Photoshop manipulation to show what it would look like.

The composite uses Sean’s jersey AND pads, and then there is just helmet accents laid over top of the USC helmet. Yeah sure, there are some quirky bits, but it’s just for some burgundy and gold fun. See both images below to see where the composite came from.

Hail. To the Redskins. To Su’a. And especially to Sean. May he rest in peace.
