The Redskins are back for a new season, rolling out a more youthful, refurbished version of their 2018 selves. Seemingly gone are high expectations, replaced by cautious optimism for a future now rooted in young, untested talent.
As with recent years, the new edition of the 87-year-old franchise was met with little fanfare during its first two days of training camp in Richmond. Perhaps the quiet and lack of lofty projections are just what is needed for the young core to gel.
The team begins its preseason slate in less than two weeks. Here’s a breakdown of their four exhibition games:
Thursday, August 8, 7:30 p.m. — @ Cleveland Browns Thursday, August 15, 7:30 p.m. — vs. Cincinnati Bengals Thursday, August 22, 7:30 p.m. — @ Atlanta Falcons Thursday, August 29, 7:30 p.m. — vs. Baltimore Ravens
In the meantime, enjoy the sights of the first two training camp practices of the 2019 season. (more…)
The Redskins opened up their sixth training camp at Richmond’s Bon Secours Training Center on Thursday with tempered crowds and quiet confidence.
A disappointing 2017 plagued by injuries led to a 7-9 record and marked the fourth time in five seasons the team missed the playoffs. The team rebounded with a solid performance in free agency and the draft. Now that camp has started, the time has come to show whether those moves will pay off or not.

The 2015 NFC East champion Washington Redskins kicked off training camp Thursday for their fourth summer at Richmond, Virginia’s Bon Secours Training Center. The fanfare was surprisingly minimal but that could be attributed to the scorching heat.

Redskins training camp wasn’t quiet for long. On the second day, the team signed troubled linebacker Junior Galette while it was announced that cornerback Bashaud Breeland was suspended one game for his citation of marijuana possession during last year’s training camp.
During practice Breeland suffered an apparent leg injury and was carted off the field. He is expected to miss several weeks.
