The Redskins won't be featured on the 2017 version of HBO's Hard Knocks, but two of their prominent former players will surely get airtime this summer. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced today that they will be the team that gets HBO's brightest spotlight during training camp.
That means DeSean Jackson and Chris Baker, who both signed with the Bucs as free agents, will get some attention.

Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston will undoubtedly be the biggest star of the show, but it will be cool to get a behind the scenes look at how Jackson forms a connection with his new quarterback and fellow wide receiver Mike Evans.
Baker, of course, has never seen a camera that he didn't like, so Hard Knocks is a perfect, unfiltered outlet for him to let his personality shine. With Baker's love for dancing and pulling pranks on his teammates, we are sure to get a few good laughs out of him on Hard Knocks.

During a chat on the #RedskinsTalk podcast last month, Washington's running back coach Randy Jordan clued in CSN Redskins Insider JP Finlay about the way he teaches his players and the things he wants to see from them.
Now, though, thanks to an exclusive Redskins Nation video, you have a chance to truly watch and listen to how Jordan and his students approach their on-field work.
In this all-access Mic'd Up segment (which was filmed at minicamp and which you can watch in the player above), you'll see the assistant encourage Samaje Perine, correct Matt Jones and compliment Rob Kelley. You'll also hear every grunt, bump and cut, an important ingredient that these types of packages must have.
It's clear from the footage that Jordan cares about the details. Now, don't blow this assignment, and go check out the video above.

Special thanks to Redskins Nation for the video.
Three weeks from right now, Kirk Cousins will either have a new long-term deal or he will be playing on the tag. Which will it be?
