Another Way The Lockout Situation Benefits Fans…


How would you like to workout with your favorite team in an actual practice setting?

Well, one lucky Redskins fan got to live that dream today when defensive captain London Fletcher asked a small group of fans if anyone would like to participate.

"He said he played high school football and his favorite team was the Redskins, so the workout was a huge thrill.“The terminology is crazy,” Richards said. “I told them I would be ready if they needed me.”"

This story would only be better if it was an actual regular season practice, he was signed to the roster as a walk on, benched for the entire season only to make one play at the insistence of crowd chants, and he sacked the QB on the ensuing play a la Rudy Ruettiger. THAT would be a story…. but this is pretty damn cool if you ask me.
