Derrius Guice posts picture lifting weights with Reuben Foster at Redskins Park

Derrius Guice injured his knee in August and has been working out at Redskins Park for months to get ready for the 2019 season. And now he has a new workout partner. 

In the picture with Guice is Reuben Foster, the linebacker the Redskins claimed off waivers last week after he was released from San Francisco. The 49ers released Foster after he was arrested for domestic violence in a Tampa hotel incident two weeks ago, his second domestic violence arrest this year.

The NFL placed Foster on the Commission Exempt list in the hours after the Redskins claimed him off waivers. That means he can't practice or play for the Redskins, but it doesn't completely preclude him from being in the facility. 

The reaction to Foster's signing came swift and furious against the Redskins, and on Thursday morning, his accuser told the story of their most recent encounter

It's unclear if Foster will ever play for the Redskins, as the team has repeatedly said if the charges are true he will not suit up in Burgundy and Gold. Bruce Allen told ESPN that the Redskins did their own investigation into the incident but will let things play out in court and by the league before the team makes any decisions. 

Foster was a first-round pick in 2017 by the 49ers after a stellar career at the University of Alabama. He slipped nearly out of the first round after failing a pre-draft drug test and having an altercation with a hospital worker during the NFL Scouting Combine.

Former Redskin D.J. Swearinger pays tribute to Sean Taylor with new tattoo

Former Redskin D.J. Swearinger pays tribute to Sean Taylor with new tattoo

D.J. Swearinger may have had short, yet quite eventful, two-year tenure in Washington, but he may have just endeared himself in the hearts of Redskins fans forever. 

The former Washington free safety recently inked a new tattoo paying tribute to one of the best free safeties and Redskins legend in Sean Taylor. Swearinger was signed in the offseason heading into the 2017 season before starting all 31 games he played in the Burgundy and Gold. 

He made eight interceptions, 132 tackles, and one Pro Bowl appearance as a part of Greg Manusky's secondary. Now, he cemented a roster spot on the New Orleans Saints -- the third time he's switched teams in two years following his release from the Redskins. 

Taylor was killed in a 2007 armed burglary and remains a fan favorite of Redskins fans everywhere.

Joe Burrow has small hands AND a big sense of humor

Seeing that Joe Burrow is a potential No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft, it makes sense that all eyes are on him. However, the attention right now is centered around only one part of him: his hands.

According to ESPN, the LSU quarterback’s hand measurements came in at nine inches, making Burrow’s hands the smallest of any first-round quarterback the NFL combine has seen since 2008.

While followers of the NFL draft and sports fans alike grappled with this statistic, Burrow took to Twitter to joke about the reaction to this information being released.

Burrow’s dash of humor was received well by Twitter users, with many people replying with praise of him and his response to this potentially touchy situation.

Burrow may have small hands, but he certainly compensates with his big sense of humor.
