Another season begins

ASHBURN, Va.- The Washington Redskins held their annual Rookie / Free Agent camp this past weekend at the Inova Sports Performance Center at Redskins Park.

All of the 2019 draft selections along with several college free agents and invited 1st year veterans were present.

First round selections Dwayne Haskins and Montez Sweat garnered much of the attention, both standing out in their performances.

When asked about Haskins running the offense, Redskins coach Jay Gruden replied, "It’s been positive. It's been a good experience so far to get to know him, get some plays and watch him learn and then watch him take it to the field. Yesterday, he had a great day. Today the defense played a little better, but it’s just a matter of progression right now and installation. We’re at the very bare minimum right now, but I’m very impressed with his skillset for sure. He can really spin it."

Sweat was equally impressive to the coaching staff.  "I have no doubt that he’s going to play a lot," Gruden said. "The skillset that he has is quite evident. You see his length and then you watch him run after practice and he’s faster than anybody we have probably right now.
