A quick look at five highlights of the Redskins’ second and final minicamp practice.
—Will Compton picked off a Kirk Cousins pass during a two-minute drill, eliciting whoops and cheers from the defensive players.
—The team has been spending a lot of time practicing onside kicks. They would do it occasionally last year; this year it’s been almost every day that the media has been able to watch. Special teams coach Ben Kotwica said that they are practicing more special situations in general.
—I don’t think that anyone kept stats but it seems to me that the leading receiver during OTAs and minicamp was Jamison Crowder. He caught a touchdown from Cousins and has generally caught anything thrown near him throughout the helmets and shorts phase of preparations.
—There was a lot of trash talk going on between DeSean Jackson and Josh Norman whenever they lined up across from each other. It wasn’t loud but it was constant. It seems to be a friendly rivalry but we’ll find out for sure in six weeks when the pads go on in Richmond.
—The defense seems to be ahead of the offense; they got the better of things today. As they made plays and the offense committed some false starts, a chant of “De-fense, De-fense” came from the far side of the field where the defenders were. Even when that wasn’t going on there was plenty of chirping and trash talking by the defense.
