RICHMOND — For the third straight year, the Redskins have partnered with athletic equipment provider Good Sports to donate more than $60,000 worth of athletic equipment, apparel and footwear to youth programs in the Richmond and Greater Washington area.
To date, they have distributed more than $180,000 in new equipment to youth programs and impacted more than 74,000 children in Richmond, Va. and Washington, D.C. areas.
“Our partnership with Good Sports allows us to do more within the community and ultimately help children get active,” said Jane Rogers, Executive Director of the Charitable Foundation.
WASHINGTON — After an offseason with changes on and off the field, the Redskins report to training camp in Richmond with a number of question marks. They are coming off back-to-back winning seasons, but just missed the playoffs, which led to some front office moves. General Manager Scot McCloughan was fired — along with defensive coordinator Joe Barry — and Doug Williams was promoted to Senior Vice President of Player Personnel, to name a few.
But the big questions of the offseason still remain.
RICHMOND, Va. -- Just as they were a year ago, all eyes were on Kirk Cousins on the first day of Redskins Training Camp. Cousins enters camp ready to play on another one-year deal after failing to reach a long-term contract in the offseason.
"I feel good," Cousins told the media Thursday. "I'm ready to go. I've been feeling good the last several weeks, and I believe we've done a good job communicating between myself and the team. We're all on the same page. We've done everything we possibly can do to get that settled and move forward."
By not getting a deal done, the perception is that Cousins has elected to bet on himself for a second straight season. He sees it slightly differently.
