RICHMOND (WAVY) – Tempers flared on Sunday as the Washington Redskins and New York Jets began their joint training camp sessions. A brawl broke out between the Redskins’ offense and the Jets’ defense during the morning session, but cooler heads prevailed on day two.
“It was pretty cool today,” said Redskins running back Chris Thompson. “I think everybody got that energy out yesterday, and it was a very productive today.”
Fists may not have flown, but the pads were certainly popping.
“We’re ready to go,” said tight end Vernon Davis. “Whenever it’s time to line up against another opponent, guys are locked in.”
Also locked in was quarterback Alex Smith. His receivers consistently made catches during the one-on-one period, while Smith connected with new receiver Paul Richardson and Davis on consecutive big pass plays during 11-on-11.
“He looked really good,” Thompson said with a smile.
