Landon Collins touches on Chase Young, roasts Dave Gettleman and more during Twitter Q&A

Many back-and-forths on Twitter are inane and shouldn't be talked about outside of that platform. When athletes engage with fans, though, it can be entertaining and even insightful.

There are a ton of creative Redskins jersey mock-ups on Twitter, so let's rank them

There are a ton of creative Redskins jersey mock-ups on Twitter, so let's rank them

It's a Saturday in early June and live major sports haven't happened in like nine years. That means it's the perfect time to rank Redskins jerseys.

There's a twist to this set of rankings, though — the threads you're about to see don't even exist. Trippy, right?

While Ron Rivera is changing just about everything about his new franchise, it sure seems like Washington's uniforms aren't getting any sort of update. But that hasn't stopped tons of Twitter users from coming up with some very interesting mock-ups.

So, here's a list of some of the more notable ones that are out there, starting with the worst and working up to the sweetest.

What, you have something better to do this weekend than check out hypothetical unis? Course you don't. Get to scrolling...

6) Here, the Burgundy and Gold becomes the Gold and Gray/Grey (why does such a boring color have multiple spellings?):

No thanks. Analysis over. Moving on.

5) OK, so the look above is really the only heinous one. The rest, starting with this white-on-white proposal, are all varying levels of fresh:

The white facemask in this mock-up is a subtle yet excellent idea, because white facemasks always work. The simple number with no trim is nice, too.

The problem here, though, is that Dwayne Haskins appears like he's taking snaps for USC and not the Redskins. This is a solid concept, yet one that still needs some adjustments to make it top-notch.

4) The selling point for No. 4 is that it brings back the beloved spear, then puts the beloved spear on a matte helmet:

The rest is fine, but the helmet on its own is a 24/10. 

3) This ensemble delivers, as it gives off some serious Capitals-at-the-2015-Winter-Classic vibes:

Some fans seemed to get upset over the inclusion of some Cowboys-like stars (nothing like getting mad over something that isn't real!), but overall, this is sharp, even though it's not that complex. 

2) Bruce Allen was never pro-Color Rush (or pro-winning games), so the Redskins never got close to wearing gold jerseys. If they ever did in the future, however, hopefully they'd be as gorgeous as these:

The DC flag on the shoulders is dope and, yep, so is the white facemask. Unfortunately, this creation just barely lost out to the winner of this theoretical list.   

1) Here's a uniform that would feel totally new and throwback at the same time:

That helmet? Beautiful. The grey facemask? Nailed it. The gold on the shoulders? Uh-huh. The white numbers with no outline? Yes please.

In all, this is a perfect design, and one that would make every contest more pleasurable to watch. Even the ones that end with mostly visiting fans having a party at FedEx Field.

WATCH: Dwayne Haskins throws a dart to Steven Sims during Friday workout

WATCH: Dwayne Haskins throws a dart to Steven Sims during Friday workout

While coaches and staffs across the NFL were allowed to report to team facilities for the first time in months on Friday, the league has yet to allow players to return just yet.

But not being able to work out at Redskins Park has not stopped second-year quarterback Dwayne Haskins and some of his receivers from getting some work together during this pandemic-ridden offseason. Just last week, the QB posted a picture of him with three of his fellow second-year veterans, wideouts Terry McLaurin, Steven Sims Jr. and Kelvin Harmon.

On Friday, Haskins was seen throwing deep passes to Sims, and popular burgundy and gold fan page Redskins Today reposted the footage on Twitter.

On this route, Haskins hits Sims perfectly in stride on a vertical route down the seam, and the second-year receiver caught the pass perfectly in stride. Sims had a fantastic end to the 2019 season and the undrafted wideout could play a much bigger role for Washington next season.

Haskins, too, is expected to make a significant jump in his second season. New Redskins head coach Ron Rivera has stated he intends to enter training camp with Haskins as the starter, and the quarterback has used this offseason to get into, in his words, "the best shape of [his] life."

Videos from the workout were documented on filmmaker Joey White's (@officialjoeyw) Instagram story.

Redskins fans hope the extra work Haskins and his receivers are putting in this offseason will translate to success on the field, as Washington finished 31st in total offense and dead last in points per game last season.
