RICHMOND — Jay Gruden gave the team the afternoon off from pads, which was a good decision. Tensions are riding high as we are now almost two weeks into camp, and the Redskins are definitely ready to see another team on Thursday. Preseason game No. 1 is Thursday in Baltimore against the Ravens.
This morning during a walk through, corner Bashaud Breeland and Terrell Pryor got into a shoving match and Gruden sent Breeland off the field.
“Get me another corner!” he yelled.
RICHMOND — Cornerback Josh Norman feels the NFL is singling him out when they say that the imaginary bow-and-arrow celebration that Norman does is prohibited. He says he enjoys it when other teams have celebrations and wants to see more of it. He notes the fans expect the celebration and emphasizes that it’s all in good fun.
“They look forward to it,” he said of players’ celebrations. “I agree, I enjoy seeing it and people getting active with it. Just like there’s joy in shooting a bow-and-arrow. I enjoy that, the crowd enjoys that. The fans get up for it.”
Norman was flagged last year against the Browns and then fined $10,000 for the action.
He mentioned that before he did it, others demonstrated it as well including Brandin Cooks in New Orleans in 2015. He was never fined.
