Starting at guard for the Washington Redskins during Thursday’s players-only practice: Quarterback John Beck.
At cornerback: Some random dude in the crowd.
Shemar Woods of the Washington Post notes that London Fletcher asked a small group of fans watching their workout Thursday if they were ready to suit up. Only one of them, 28-year-old Josh Richards, was prepared for the moment.
Richards put on his cleats and participated in the team’s individual drills. Richards assisted the players setting up cones, and jumped into an interception drill, dropping only one pass on the first go-around.
He said he played high school football and his favorite team was the Redskins, so the workout was a huge thrill.
“The terminology is crazy,” Richards said. “I told them I would be ready if they needed me.”
