VIDEO: Ricky Jean Francois catches punt, ends Redskins training camp

Aug 15, 2016, 9:40 AM EDT

The Redskins ended their final practice in Richmond on a fun note as Jay Gruden challenged Chris Baker to catch a punt from the JUGS machine. If he did, practice would be over and training camp would end.

Baker couldn’t get it done in a couple of tries so in stepped fellow D-lineman Ricky Jean Francois. He didn’t make it on the first attempt but after some punts to gauge the wind, this happened:

Ricky Jean catches the punt and camp ends. #Redskins

    Why is Mason Foster wearing a hoodie? Because it’s only 80 and not 100 yet?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

      Real talk. Why is Foster wearing a freakin hoodie? Is he cold?

        It was already hot and humid at 9 a.m. I have no idea why anyone would be wearing something like that but a lot of player wore multiple layers and hoodies every day, even the ones with 105 heat index.

          Okay. That’s crazy especially when the same guys go out in just short sleeves when it’s below freezing.

    Also, did RJF do his dance?

      I doubt it, the teammates mobbed him.
