With offseason workouts finished, Redskins players and coaches are ready for some time off

Members of the Washington Redskins take to social media to explain their plans for the upcoming offseason break.

With all workouts, OTAs and minicamps now complete, the Washington Redskins are ready for a six-week break prior to the beginning of training camp.

Head coach Jay Gruden explained the plan for the players and coaches during the hiatus:

"The players will have a set of instructions or what have you from Coach [Mike] Clark. [That] is the big one – conditioning, the test they have to prepare for. But a lot of these players have their own trainers, their own facility where they work out and they are very diligent about it. That’s a good thing. They’re going to come back in good shape. But we’ll have a plan to give them that if they don’t have anywhere to go, they’ll have some steps to take and follow along with. Coaches, we take the time off. It’s a time off for coaches. It’s the benefit of being an NFL coach – you’ve got this month here where you can take off."


Defensive linemen Ricky Jean Francois and rookie Matt Ioannidis as well as guard Spencer Long and safety David Bruton are proud to have completed minicamp and ready for training camp in Richmond.





Middle linebacker Will Compton put his usual humorous spin on things with a joking tweet for DeAngelo Hall.


Second-round draft pick Su'a Cravens will be returning to his hometown of Los Angeles for part of his break from football.


Safety Duke Ihenacho's travel plans were momentarily delayed, but he will have plenty of time to get where he is going.


Sophomore guard Brandon Scherff looks to be on a road trip with man's best friend.

Former Maryland standout Vernon Davis has already caught a Nationals game with the time off.


Days after meeting President Obama at the White House to honor the Denver Broncos' Super Bowl win, Bruton continued spending time with good company in Basketball Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins. 


Wide receiver Pierre Garcon and defensive back DeAngelo Hall got into charitable mood to help a couple of good causes.



And wideout DeSean Jackson is organizing a youth football camp similar to what quarterback Kirk Cousins participated in this past weekend.
