CSN Washington dot com. Actor Redskins nation now is for his weekly visit on the show talked -- this year. From CSN Washington dot com add before we talk about Richmond I understand you'll be coming into the column by we talked about -- last week is the anticipation building for you. I am pumped up I would I roll my sleeves last night and I started digging into the awesome and invite t.'s first group I looked that was safeties I think the Redskins have a keen eye on that position and are covered the Indy 500 a number of times like no all of the good steak house so if you say I'd like to think perhaps the elbows with the each. Cocktail but there -- quality players at I was you have to ask and talk till this year to -- the forty. At Lucas Oil is. That's at least to me but -- do it would be easy and I'm willing not to operatives and I don't -- one time you know get up there -- do it again didn't really wanna open -- Don't but it's OK so you want to Richmond yesterday I would think it's all the construction going on it looks like it's fast -- brought you know I spoke. Briefly with -- one of the construction guys not only date twenty -- it was amazing to see. The fact they'd already corrected. Parts of the building and they had levelled the -- -- -- with a fueled gonna go that level the playing field yes they've leveled the playing field and be the one thing that. -- concerns me but I mean that's a lot to do and a very short amount of time yet that but you know I was told. Look we have to do it there is no you know oops -- we weren't quite ready to have to get it ready so looks like there and putting a lot of eighty hour weeks. Mother nature's been very very beneficial because of the lack of real cold weather no -- no -- But that brings with the conversation you have with Bruce Allen. A lot of the media that you had a chance to do one along with Bruce at some of the topics obviously Robert Griffin the third what are your thoughts on his progress. Well I mean. You know Bruce Allen made it sound like they're the -- -- obvious are keeping a very close I don't how things are going in their very pleased with how things are going. IA he did stop short of confirming something that was reported by ESPN earlier in the week that Griffin. Is looking like he's going to be able to play week one he said no we're gonna let the doctors decide that and you know what and in reality -- -- worse still seven months away how can you really know if five if a guy's going to be ready to start after such a major knee surgery but at least the team feels like there's a chance so looks. Yet my thought is you know there are are like three weeks in six weeks and nine weeks or milestones I -- the doctors have a feeling where he should be an. But you're right long way to go still now. The -- salary cap penalty and -- and again Bruce heck didn't say what exact what do you what do you think might be going on. Well I mean he's certainly made it sound like without giving any specifics that the Redskins are still fighting us right now you know if I'm a fan. I'm hopeful now -- I'm like well maybe there's chances of -- get reversed but the reporter in me thinks you know what. I mean they've already had one appeal shot down there's only twenty something days to -- -- And I don't really see of an avenue where it's gonna get overturned but you know the one thing that that is. Working well for the Redskins as it's not gonna get dropped on the last the last hour. At least they can go into free agency understanding where they are in terms of proximity to the -- and can make moves according. How about the Trent Williams situation that was brought up what are your thoughts on that well I you know robbers -- confirmed what we've heard from the police out in Honolulu that you know Trent was the victim diary you know. He said this the stitches have been removed from his head and looks like he's going to be good to go I mean it's it's an embarrassing thing for sure for Trenton but you know the good things ever -- saying he had nothing to do with it. You excited about training camp as much as you want I know our whole body your family man and he got a lot of obligations. So he has not abandoning. The whole front but you're gonna be spent a lot of time at Richmond ultimately spent a lot of time at Richmond.
