NFL training camp previews, Part I: NFC
Washington Redskins: The Redskins will begin training camp on July 30 at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center in Richmond, Virginia. A revamped offensive line will be a key focus in camp for Washington. With improvements made at a number of levels, including first round draft pick Brandon Scherff, the team’s offensive line is expected to perform significantly better than last season. Behind the revamped offensive line, running back Alfred Morris will be evaluated in the hopes of bouncing back from a disappointing season last year. On the other side of the ball, the Redskins have completely transformed their defensive look and strategy by bringing in a new defensive coordinator, secondary coach, and defensive line coach. In addition, the constant debate about quarterback Robert Griffin III will be a continued point of contention.

Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer had thrown for 1,146 yards, eight touchdowns and only two interceptions over those four games, while the Cardinals defense had forced eight turnovers.
