About 40 Redskins Show Up for Three-Day Mini-Camp

Nearly 40 Redskins gathered at a Northern Virginia high school for a 1-hour, 40-minute workout to start a three-day, players-only mini-camp.

It was an odd scene, for sure. London Fletcher directed the defensive walk-through at one end of the field, John Beck and Rex Grossman went through a practice script at midfield and Casey Rabach gave tips to newcomer Maurice Hurt in one end zone.

“Definitely not [normal],” said receiver Niles Paul, still wearing his Nebraska gear. “At least it’s something.”

Paul and first-round pick Ryan Kerrigan were two of 10 draft choices who traveled to the area Monday and are staying at local hotel between crash-course, on-field sessions. The only draft picks not present were second-rounder Jarvis Jenkins and sixth-rounder Aldrick Robinson.

Kerrigan is the only rookie with a playbook – he visited Redskin Park during the day-long period when the lockout was lifted. The veterans realized they needed to get the draft picks involved.

Beck contacted running back Roy Helu a few days after the draft.

“I felt like if I was a rookie that got drafted and didn’t know what was going on, I would want to have somebody call me and say, ‘Hey, this is the plan. This is when we’re getting together. This is what our offense looks like. Let me send you something so you can start looking at it,’” Beck said.
