I'm sure here so I guess you know the great thing about training camp is you lose sight of everything because you're with the players from six AM to eleven PM yeah and we are we're inundating them with football football football understandable and then not not running with the bulls or anything like that no we had a talk did you have a conversation with Mister Norman about you know I wasn't a fan of you dancing you know with the debt limit stars yet but I have you dance with the women that dance with the book yeah I think it probably a good choice hi this is your fourth year now in Richmond for our six year is six I'm so sorry for under and and what it turned out it was today I we're on break right now but the fans will be coming back relationship still strong with the city here it's it's strong with the city with you know Richmond is really one of the big NFL markets there in the top ten in television ratings while for every Monday night game the Super Bowl the draft so there's a lot of foot NFL fans here and obviously this is rights can country can you know the time pretty well could you at the governor just won't come on my show I don't I'm not sure why he's been in the news a lot lately could you could you give me a hook up there we've we've heard from the office and we're expecting him to come to practice either Friday maybe this weekend so give me a heads up on that I'll swing by for fat all right let I got to talk about the Redskins in the season ahead of us who's your starting quarterback Jeez I was wondering if you'd asked me that question that hasn't been determined yet the Philly is anybody's job yeah that would Jay's been doing as you saw in the first practice is each player's a cold case and Wayne are all getting equal amount of wraps and they're working with the first in the second and the third groups and we're not going to worry about that for a while now I know why shouldn't loves a quarterback controversy as much as independent counsels yeah right now we're going to let him continue to work and continue to grow and and of course it was talking about do what's happening with your left guard right now the the offensive line seems a little a little different without without are at the heart of the team without Trent there what's what's happening there you have news on that old out no news on it he's not here we love them but he's not here and is everybody talking I mean either you having conversations at least to work through this yeah it's really Trent tranice explained his position to me and we'll see what happens but right now we have to focus on the guys were here well if it listed as we had a great time last season obviously it was an incredible start you superseded everybody's expectations of the B. first half of the year and then these injuries com and it does ask question in that it's got to kill you obviously when you see these injuries in these guys are a part of your family and and you get to know them so much what is it about the red skins it seems is it is it the turf is it the the the program that you've got for strength and conditioning I mean I've seen your facilities there their top of the line you know Larry we we brought in some independent people to try and analyze the different injuries and after spending about eight weeks of our time and their time they came back with the you know there's no correlation is just the fleet demand yeah you know if it was just pulled muscles are growing sin and things soft tissue type of things then it would be the training regimen but we broke some bones we separated some shoulders we pulled some calf muscles we pulled we did it we did a mall you got everything that we share it was hopefully goes in the cycle and and it and it all happened the cowboys I don't wish injuries on any but I do but not us our receipt with Bruce Allen president of the red skins here on day one of training camp that between now that Lester yeah the jets here and they they were thugs right they were day beaten up on our players and our fans what team comes in at the end of this season will be the bangles because that's the first preseason game it didn't work out with the bangles okay so we're we're not gonna have any team come to Richmond we're just we're gonna work is our our own units and then get ready to play the Bengals ran by the way you this goes through what August fourteenth I want to say off the top of my head I believe a right right in there if you guys want to come down here for a beautiful long weekend or just take a couple of days off Richmond is incredibly hospitable and it's a really cool atmosphere don't cost anything to come in the gate no it caught the cost nothing I I do know someone bought a beer a Budweiser very early this morning that that was that I just bought that for the picture I can actually drink the beer I'm workin Bros an hour but it's not it's not get me in trouble or allies I have more questions if you'd like me to ask the group if we're trying to get each other in trouble well no we appreciate the business thank you for let's let's talk about what your expectations are for this season I know on the first day of training camp everybody thinks that we got a chance at the Superbowl instructing the parity in the NFL is incredible but the if you read the press accounts you guys don't have a chance to make it past the first week it all and that's a good thing that's motivating right yeah it's it's it's our players understand that expectations with you don't national outlets is in great for us the the cowboys in the eagles on the eagles have been a very good team that won the Superbowl couple years ago but we can make our own history and that's that is the message here and if you see the shirts that the players are wearing they say everything matters and so we're gonna try and get the details down here in Richmond and trying to get ready for opening gaming and win again when I was talking to the fans here during the the first half of the day for the first practice they were all raving about the draft and do something about this draft in particular that has given so much hope and excitement to the fans odd that talk about your draft talk about the strategy that you have there and who you really look I mean obviously you want all of them to to start eventually but who are you really looking after this season from at twelve each day is very important for the young players and and any new player that comes in to to the red skins or any team because I got to learn the new terminology the new systems and learn their new teammates and what they can count on from their teammates so the young players it's very important for him they're working really hard and we are excited about a week we see great things for them here's where those so you you want to make it a starting quarterback right now is pretty much up for grabs a everybody yes several out of that out of the next ten minutes there goes that that career option starting running back kind of the same situation right even Adrian Peterson obviously coming back but he's not necessarily in you know every down kind of running back right we use a group runny back system for a number of years eight Adrian obviously looks beautiful and is the best body out here him in Vernon Davis it's a tie between who the best body is in any way once again you're not station but Chris Thompson's been such a valuable asset for us on third down and out of the backfield but getting various guys back yeah watching the compile competition for them I was injured right around this time like third day of training camp last one of the first preseason game against overstressed hatred and that and and awful awful but having various guys back and he's he's healthy hundred resign and he's he's healthy knock on wood please not cancel that service thank all right so no conversation with you is complete we're gonna have plenty conversations I understand we're gonna we're gonna you're gonna be a regular here on the program over the course of the year so what's going on with the stadium the stage where we gonna be where we gonna be we do not have that announcement yet you'll you'll get to hear when we do expect to make an announcement about a new stadium new home for the Redskins sometime this year I would say within a year of that if that is the time table we're looking at our deadline for making the decision is really twenty twenty two because our lease and in Maryland and sin and twenty twenty six and so yeah but they don't build around here like they do in Vegas like that they they made the that stadium for the raiders was built in like three months out there I it's going to take a longer to building here well there's history in this city for when they're motivated they can do anything they want to do when I interviewed the president and he said he'd like to come to a red skins game what was the reaction in the front office there an aspirin when you were when you were here and that we look at that residence we have we have pictures of red skin park of the presidents of come over the years and it's it's it's it's part of the greatness of this franchise legacy is we're in the nation's capital and we think that's remains as a present wants to go to a game the president redskin says you'd love to have him at the game so I got to be the mediator I got to work this out I get get everybody in the same room and a negotiated down your your on board for this yeah but I thought you had the secretary of state coming to the game no no I left him down and when is that our Bruce down as a present right you want the president to come to the game alright we got a lot of Redskins fans here want that T.

"Fetters thirty five thirty six. Thirty seven thirty seven. Well, that was a sport where Bjorn Borg retired at the age twenty five or twenty six whatever it was. And, you know, once you approached your late twenties, you're considered to be done there for a long period of time. I think that's it. I think that's all I have for today. Did you have anything else? Oh, the Texans fired their GM, and one of the names on the list of people that they're thinking about hiring is Martin Mayhew, who's been out of football. I believe since losing that job in Detroit. He's always been one of those guys, I wish the Redskins would consider, I think Nicosia area in, in New England is also a guy that the Texans are considering as well. But I would have loved to have seen, like Martin Mayhew to me is a guy that when the Redskins finally do you know it's gotta happen. At some point finally decide to go in another direction. If he's, you know, he's not in the league right now, by the way, just to emphasize apply. I've made over the last few weeks. I know I'm bouncing around here but, you know if the Redskins scouting staff, and all these guys like Eric Schaeffer and Kyle Smith were so brilliant, and so talented. And so sought after why are they interviewed for any of these positions? Why they're not even mentioned Todd. Mcshay told me was mentioned, the ESPN mock drafter was mentioned for the jets opening. And how is it that Eric shea for hasn't gotten interviewed for team president or GM role or wise and Kyle Smith? Interviewing for some of these jobs. I don't know. All right. Anything else church just to the new assistant, I drew Hanes from Michigan. Yeah. I did see that over the weekend. I thought he was on beeline staff, right? Yeah. So tergence filled out his staff, replacing Kevin Broadus replacing Kevin Bodas who's the head coach at Tulsa. Right. Telsar Morgan one of two. We're lost on on that, that's you know, we're not in season right now. Morgan Morgan state. All right. That's it. Tommy will be here tomorrow..

"But it just I think sometimes the Redskins because of their location that players miss out on a lot of that stuff. Totally and in season those guys don't have time to do. So I think it makes sense. Yeah, it was cool, all the rookies were there and kinda shaking hands of the mayor. It seemed like they were enjoying themselves JP has a podcast, that, of course you can listen to Redskins talk. And he also and I just noticed this. But I think you actually mentioned it as well. JP just put together a post minicamp, fifty three man. Redskins roster projection Sofala JP on Twitter at Jp Finley, NBC, s and you can see his latest, fifty three man roster projection, which I'm sure will change many times between now and September first. Yeah. We know interest. The defense is starting to look fairly stable. I don't see a tremendous amount of change coming defensively, barring injuries or them signing somebody else. I think what will be interesting. Is that often the line I don't think we're anywhere close to seeing what the finished product is. I think. Is going to be guys that are currently on other teams will finish on the Redken drowsy. I'm interested in that. I'm interested in how the receiver position, you know, sort of Volvo between now and the opener and I'm interested to see, you know, Geiss in whether or not, you know, this is a guy that's healthy enough in ready enough to be a fulltime guy. I mean are we gonna see Adrian Peterson for the first four or five games primarily, you know, that's always interesting. And of course there is the quarterback thing to that will be intriguing between now and the opener. I got him keeping some Agyei p Rhine right now, which I never expected. But when you watch him minicamp, it's hard to hard to say, no, we got a lot of time. Well Jay as he usually does with running backs in particular, mentions all of them, but he did single out p Ryan is a guy that was having that had really looked sharp. And you know that's done that every point this off season. All right. Hey, thanks preciado it as always, I'll talk to you soon. Thank you got. All right.

You know, an NFL content in particular, like NFL dot com. Late last week, a story about predicting every NFC. Team's most valuable player and the Redskins most valuable player, guess was Landon Collins and the writer who wrote this story, who was, Dan. Hands us for NFL dot com rights that it might be. It might be a time of transition on offense for the Redskins while sort of been a time of transition on offense here for over a year now, but this team has serious potential on defense. He writes the unit imported a key playmaker. When Washington signed former giants all pro Landon Collins counts field, fills, a huge need on Greg Muskie's defense and won't be held back, by the shoulder injury that nagged him nagged at him during his final season in the Meadowlands. It doesn't hurt that he's playing in the same division..

"It is my honour improves to have on next guest on the line. He is the president of the Washington Redskins who obviously had a very very good week. It particularly in the first. Round of Thursday nights NFL draft two thousand and nineteen Reckitt ratings for the NFL the Redskins don't give a damn about that they give a damn about themselves and winning and doing what they can to put themselves position to win. And Bruce Allen, the president of the franchise would have a lot to do with that. What's going on Bruce? How are you? I'm doing great, Stephen. How you doing? I gotta tell you. I'm a bit compromise on this afternoon this morning and the out west coast. And here's why I like it. I like talking to you. I was gonna be nice to you anyway. But our man, Tony Wiley your guy media relations for the Redskins. I mean, he's a bully. He's a bully. He calls me up. And he said look man, you'd better be nice to my God. This is what he does to me, Bruce. This is what he does. He's got to look for me all the help. I can get. Listen, let's get right into it. I mean, first of all put into words, how excited you guys were when you realize you were going to be in position to draft somebody who was considered to be at the very least the second best quarterback in the draft and away in Haskins out of Ohio State talk to me about that for second. Well, Well, you know. you know, as you go through the draft process and Doug Williams and Kyle Smith did a tremendous job with all the scouts starting to set the board.
