Heres another edition of Robert Griffin III gets it. This is somewhere around volume 587.Last night Griffin decided to go out and take in a local high school football game. He has no ties to Broad Run High School in Loudoun County other than the fact that its in the community where he lives and works. But there he was last night to see the Spartans beat the Patriots 34-20.He also was there to support the Pinkd breast cancer awareness event that Broad Run was putting on that night. He apparently decided to go on the spur of the moment. Friday evening hetweeted looking for some information:What quarter is the Pink'd game at broad run high school in?Griffin appeared at the game unannounced, with the Loudoun County Sheriffs department helping with crowd control. He talked to and posed for pictures with students in the crowd and helped out selling the Pinkd T-shirts to raise funds for breast cancer research.He tweeted thefollowing after the game.Appreciate where you came & you will always appreciate where you are & where you can go. SO to Broad Run High getting the W & for Pink'dEarlier this week, Griffin said that he will wear some pink gear, including a pink edition of the trademark sleeve he wears on his left (non-throwing) arm, as part of the teams Think Pink initiative on Sunday.Griffin said he thought it was important to help raise awareness for the cause even though it has not touched his family.I know it means something to a lot of different people, he said. Sometimes, its not necessarily what youre doing for yourself that can make a difference in this world. Its what youre doing to try to bring awareness to other peoples struggles.Yeah, I think he gets it.
Jordan Reed was reportedly absent from the Redskins' voluntary OTA practice on Tuesday, but a picture on Twitter shows the stud tight end didn't skip the session just so he could lounge around on the couch.
Chad Johnson, expert on all things such as repeatedly hauling in footballs and transforming the end zone into the 18th green at Augusta National, posted this photo of him, Reed and one other fellow, presumably following a workout:
For those who want to freak out that Washington's top offensive threat didn't show up in Ashburn for his team's OTAs, it's important to remember that 1) it was not required and 2) judging by that snapshot, Reed has had no trouble staying in football shape on his own or finding people to hone his craft with.
By the way, peep that hashtag from Johnson. When a six-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro uses the word legendary to refer to someone else, that someone else should feel pretty good about himself.
Josh Norman is the third Redskins player voted to the NFL Top 100 list for 2017 (so far). The annual ranking, voted on by current NFL players, unveiled No. 60 through 51 on NFL Network Monday night.
Norman landed at No. 59, joining teammates Jordan Reed (65) and Kirk Cousins (70). This marks the second straight season that the cornerback was voted into the Top 100 by his peers.
In 2016, Norman was ranked No. 11 on the heels of a Super Bowl berth with the Carolina Panthers.
The 2016 season was Norman's first with the Redskins, signing a $75 million contract to come to Washington after being released by the Panthers.
He started all 16 games for the Redskins and finished the season with 67 tackles, 19 passes defensed and three interceptions. Two of those picks came in the same game against the Bears in Week 16.
Norman enters the 2017 season as the team's top corner and one of the leaders of the defense, which saw a change of coordinator with Greg Manusky replacing Joe Barry.
