As reporters gather around the locker of Washington tight end Vernon Davis, there is a mutual understanding between the player and the media: Davis is ready to answer questions, but only after he gets his protein shake.
The 33-year-old NFL veteran, who consumes the viscous brown liquid daily before addressing reporters, has played his entire professional career with personal health at the forefront of his mind.
“I just figured in order to be a pro, a real pro, you have to do what professionals do,” Davis said. “Just from having common sense, I ... Read More

Three Reasons Your Resolutions FAIL
We are officially a few weeks in to 2018, meaning that many of us are knee-deep in taking on our resolutions.

Amanda Sauer's path to midfield at Ohio Stadium, wearing the white hat as referee of Ohio State's spring football game, started in the stands at a high school north of New York City. Ironically, she complained about a call.

Our May #WOWWednesday for May is Renelle Cannon.
Renelle has been a fan of the team her entire life. She has been on a mission to get every Redskins player that she has met to get a special sweatshirt signed in honor of her father.

Her favorite Redskins memory was at training camp at the WOW VIP day and she was able to meet Doug Williams and Joe Theismann. It was a cloudy day, but when she met them and got their autograph, the sun came up!

Washington Redskins running back Samaje Perine had an incredible career at Oklahoma where he became the all-time leading rusher in just three seasons, amassing 4,122 rushing yards.
In February, Perine proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Meg, and just like he dazzled throughout his collegiate career, Perine added a little bit of magic.
Perine did need a little help in order for the proposal to go smoothly, so he requested help from a few of his Sooner teamates, other college football standouts and YouTube magician Daniel Fernandez.
During the act, Fernandez wanted to test Perine ... Read More
