One of the best parts of spending time in NFL locker rooms comes from listening to players interact like normal friends and co-workers. Generally, that means a lot of making fun of one another, just like an office or job site.
Being the middle of February, the Redskins aren't in Ashburn every day to make fun of each other, so some of the chop busting spills onto social media. Washington linebacker Will Compton was recently named to the NFL's most attractive list by Fanatics.com. That would have led to a serious amount of ribbing in the locker room, but considering it's the offseason, Twitter took care of it.
Things started with this innocuous tweet from @Redskins.
Then Chris Baker dropped a simple reply.

Compton's retort was full-out savage.

Remember, Compton and Baker are friends, and the defensive lineman enjoyed the linebacker's burn.

Besides, with Baker staring at unrestricted free agency, he's probably much more focused with landing on Pro Football Focus' 10 under the radar free agents list. PFF wrote, "Baker gets consistent pressure on the quarterback, but is an even better run defender, as you’ll rarely find the veteran out of position." Traits like that will get Swaggy paid, either in Washington, or elsewhere.
