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."
