Csnwashington.com. Everybody I'm Jennifer Williams alongside of rates -- Breaks today the Redskins held their OTAs in Ashburn Virginia -- inside the bubble and there was a lot -- theory you actually need an interesting point. About what OTAs for like two years ago what. Tom tell me more about that compared to the cup. Well things first it was my champions' first year and we had the B Albert Haynesworth. Being with with him not showing up for many camp. Even though he had to learn a new position in the new 34 defense. That was kind of hanging over everything. And the other thing was that you know this team you feel like in 345. Years. A lot of these guys are still going to be here. What Belichick team yet two years ago you'd look to beat the even the starters ago. -- has not going to be around next year he then maybe next year and not two years you know you could just picked through and you know and it was guys that. You just knew could do -- do -- age are just they just weren't very good. Weren't going to be around itself not to get that's a big difference as well. Well and Richie just said guys that won't be around they're still Lotta competition. What would you say you know everyone wants to hear about RG three what we're going you know position by position what wary of some observations you pats. On that yet no accomplishment RG three yeah. So that's for sure. But I didn't know Taylor what tiger and is in his shape up to be. Heck of a competition. You've got Fred Davis of course is is that the the franchise for a -- player at least in terms of money. But Chris Cooley just watching him and talking to him after practice he's. He's fired up he's healthy he wasn't wearing a wrap on his knee was -- a brace on his name he was he was fine it was good to go. Niles Paul was catching passes all over the field for Margie three. So it's going to be -- can be quite it quite a battle they're both were for jobs. Logan Paulsen and that would -- the fourth guy probably the only and keep three so. He's the guy but. Some both in terms of jobs and for playing time. Now rich we got a question via Twitter about Brandon Banks and we talked about Niles Paul making the transition from wide receiver to tight and you. We saw banks trying to out some. Receiver outstanding. Yeah -- I last year in training camp which is course all we had. Banks he was very limited in trying to trying to run pass patterns because of his knee gives -- wrapped up. -- they kept them they won the same for return duties they did use a whole lot receiving today he was working out with the receivers that the whole time. And it's like -- tell people I -- you know -- he's a big topic on Twitter. -- -- people until I see somebody you can do his job who could catch virtually every hunt for not Hendry thought those -- yardage right. For the for the prize that's out there and let our minor yet exactly for a third year like they're here on minimum yeah yeah exactly. And who have to see exactly what Graham who has the explosive an ability that he does mean he can still he -- show a lot last year he had the knee problem. If he's healthy. And he's back here again I'm not -- yankees and make the team but I need to see somebody who can do that job. Final question for you might see -- hand showed us why he's one of the toughest guys on the field today and what RG three called up pretty scary moment. Why Marcus you know he was he got blind side and basically abide by Brandon Thompson -- covering Pierre Garcon and you did it right now. Hi it's kinda it's kinda tight. Quarters in here and I've known as a full -- football field. You know you get two teams running plays on it you know you can't you can't watch everything self. I think Mike Shanahan can develop some eyes in the back of his head he appears to be okay probable for tomorrow as a -- Rich thank you so much and thank you for are watching make sure to log on to CSN Washington dot com for all your Redskins coverage CSN Washington dot com.
