You know those April Fools' Day jokes that zoom right past, "Hey, that was pretty funny!" and end up more in the, "Yo, that was kinda messed up," territory? Well, Will Compton just added another entry into the list of pranks that are really well-executed but also NOT COOL, BRO.
Early on Saturday afternoon, at a time when many still haven't realized what day it is and what that day entails, the Redskins linebacker sent out this tweet:
On any other of the 364 days on the calendar, that message would signify that the Redskins and Kirk Cousins have come to some sort of contract agreement, something much of the fan base has been craving. But on April 1, all that message is good for is some laughs from its sender.
Many weren't happy with Compton after they figured out what he was up to, including Dale Earhardt Jr.:
Agreed, Dale. Agreed.

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?
Thanks for participating. Feel free to leave your comments here on the site or just respond to the tweet. Thanks.
