A week into training camp, it could be argued that left tackle Trent Williams has been the best player on the field most days at Redskins Park.Footwork. Speed. Strength. Williams has displayed it all.I feel like Im playing better, he said. But theres always room to improve. I want to be the best, not just better.After missing the final four games last season due to a drug suspension, Williams said he rededicated himself to football in the offseason by focusing on strength and conditioning training. For five days each week from January to April, and again for a month after Junes minicamp, the 24-year-old trained with James Cooper of Accelerated Bodies in Houston. Cooper has also worked with Adrian Peterson and Vince Young, among other NFL players.Its all paying off, Williams said. We did everything, including one leg box jumps. It all makes sense.Its a good thing Williams came prepared because much will be expected from the former fourth overall draft pick, who, to this point, has underachieved during his three season NFL career.Not only is Williams being entrusted to protect the blind side of touted rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, hell have to anchor a maligned offensive line thats already down two starters.Left guard Kory Lichtensteiger is expected to be sidelined for the remainder of the preseason after getting his surgically repaired knee scoped on Monday. Right tackle Jammal Brown is nursing an injured hip and is out indefinitely.Whatever dont kill you makes you stronger, he said.Yeah, we got a couple of injuries. But its nothing too serious, we hope. We know Kory will be back in no time. Jammals situation is a little bit unknown. But we cant let that distract us. We still have to handle our business.Williams said hes up to the task.I want to win, he said. I want to keep my quarterback clean. I want to be dominant.
Back in February, fans named the Redskins the third-most attractive team in the NFL. On top of that, Will Compton was tabbed the league's fifth-best looking player overall (in fact, he beat out Tom Brady, and everyone knows beating out Tom Brady in anything is always notable).
A side effect of being revered for your good looks, though, is that other people will sometimes get jealous of them. Take Compton's teammate, Su'a Cravens, for example.
According to some tweets from Cravens, the two Washington defenders were casually eating dinner on Wednesday night, but kept getting interrupted. The reason for the interruptions?
Apparently, they were happening because Compton is just really, really, really, ridiculously good looking.
Everyone who voted for that ballot was DRUNK! 😂😂😂😂 #AHHHHHHHELLNaaahhhhh— Suzy (@Sua_Cravens) March 30, 2017
Hopefully Compton picked up the tab, at least.
When most 30-year-olds earn a promotion, they'll receive a decent bump in compensation. Then, they'll use some of that bonus on that new set of golf clubs they've been eyeing, or perhaps on a fresh couch for the living room.
Sean McVay isn't one of those 30-year-olds.
The Rams head coach and former Redskins offensive coordinator bypassed those smaller purchases and has instead opted to recently buy a giant house in California. How much did McVay drop on the property? Oh, just $2.71 million. That's all.
The home, located in Encino, has six bedrooms, six bathrooms and checks in at more than 4,600 square feet. And yes, of course, it has a pool.
Here are some photos of McVay's new digs:
The Internet these days is full of hot takes. Here's a cooler, more reasonable one: McVay's house is pretty nice.
