Will Compton makes crucial mistake while congratulating Sean McVay

Will Compton makes crucial mistake while congratulating Sean McVay

Will Compton just wanted to be like the rest of his Redskins teammates who have been reaching out in various ways to congratulate Sean McVay about recently landing the head coaching job with the Rams. But while his head and heart were in the right place, his spelling was absolutely in the wrong place.

An understandable place, sure, but still, the very wrong place.

Check out the tweet Compton sent on Friday, and see if you can spot his error:

Unfortunately for the linebacker, there are many ways to spell the name Sean (others include Shaun, Shawn, and Shawne, plus plenty more uncommon versions) and he just so happened to choose the wrong one. Fans quickly invaded his mentions letting him know of his vital mistake, though, so he soon issued a correction.

To be fair, after Joe Barry was fired, Compton spelled his name properly, so he's shooting 50 percent so far this offseason. Plus, the fact that S-e-a-n is pronounced the same as S-h-a-w-n makes negative — not just zero, but negative — sense.

Is it time to be concerned about the Redskins' start to the offseason?

Is it time to be concerned about the Redskins' start to the offseason?

The Redskins season ended just 12 days ago, and a lot about the team has changed — not to mention the potential changes that could still very well happen.

Sean McVay and Joe Barry, the offensive and defensive coordinators of the last two seasons, won't be back for 2017. Meanwhile, the Redskins and Kirk Cousins are at a standstill, and there seems to be a decent shot Washington loses both of its top receivers, too, in DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garçon.

Yes, it's still very early; once the coordinator jobs are filled, once the Cousins situation is given more time and once the NFL Draft is completed, things could look a whole lot better. However, as things stand now, there is a lot of uncertainty with the Burgundy and Gold.

So, should there be a level of concern about the way the franchise is headed? That's a question the Sports Junkies debated on Friday, with J.P. Flaim pleading with his fellow co-hosts to relax, while Eric Bickel and John Auville chose to start inching toward Panictown.

To watch the full discussion, check out the video player above, then figure out which side you fall on. And, as always, remember: there is never a dull moment on the NFL's calendar.

You can watch Robert Griffin III help renovate a veteran's home Tuesday night

Robert Griffin III earned an undergraduate degree from Baylor in political science, but on Tuesday night, his architecture knowledge will be on full display for a national TV audience.

The former Redskin and current Browns quarterback is scheduled to appear on an episode of Fixer Upper, a show on HGTV in which a couple based in Waco, Texas renovates homes for families in the area. In Tuesday's installment of the series — which will air at 9 p.m. — Griffin will join Chip and Joanna Gaines to help restore the house of a Vietnam veteran.

"When I found out RG3 and the Family of 3 Foundation was going to do this, it was a total shock to me that I could be that lucky," the veteran, a man named Bill Graham, says in a video on the website of Griffin's foundation.

"The Family of 3 is an initiative that truly comes from my heart, and with the help of our members I’m excited about the difference we can make in people’s lives," the site reads in its "Our Story" section. "As a collective Family, we will  strive to create meaningful networks for people in our everyday lives by providing them with access to the tools and resources necessary to reach their fullest potential."
