From Redskins PR:

LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they will host joint training camp practices with the New England Patriots at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center in Richmond, Va. on Monday, Aug. 4 – Wednesday, Aug. 6.

“Thanks to the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center, we have a facility that has the capabilities to host joint practices of this nature where both teams can come together to prepare for the 2014 season,” Executive Vice President/General Manager Bruce Allen said.

All joint practice sessions will be open and free to the public. The practices will lead into the teams’ 2014 preseason debut on Thursday, Aug. 7 at FedExField.

“Who would have guessed that we’d have two NFL teams playing football right in the center of our city,” Richmond Mayor Dwight C. Jones said. “Our state-of-the-art training facility is generating excitement and exposure for Richmond, Virginia even beyond what I envisioned. Welcoming the New England Patriots to Richmond for practice sessions with the Washington Redskins this summer couldn’t be more thrilling.”

Times and details for each session will be announced at a later date. All other training camp dates will be released at another time.

    Rich: I need your help here as I seem to recall something like this is the past. I think 1988 when I saw Stan Humphries for the first time in a live (or taped) practice (not a preseason game) against another team. I also recall Sonny J saying how well Humphries did. Please check your Redskins data base and let me know what really happened as I can not recall any details (where, what, why). Thanks. Archives
