SEEN AND HEARD AT REDSKIN PARK

Tight end Chris Cooley treated 25 patients from Children’s National Medical Center and the Hospital For Sick Children to a day with the Redskins. The children were given a tour of Redskin Park, attended practice and were showered with autographs. Cooley also provided each child with about $300 worth of Redskins souvenirs, games, handheld game systems and videos.

“I really feel like I’m a big part of this city, this community,” Cooley said. “Everyone has been so great to me. I feel like I owe it to give back.”

QUOTABLE

“What I saw today is … is a confident decision to throw the ball even when the receiver is not super open. … Today was the first day he got it in his mind and said, ‘I’m going for it.’”

LONG SHOT OF THE DAY

OT Tavares Washington, 6-3, 320, Florida

The 2006 undrafted free agent spent the past two seasons on San Francisco’s practice squad. Washington also played for the Rhein Fire of NFL Europa in 2007. The Redskins have five players on the roster with starting experience at the position (Chris Samuels, Jon Jansen, Todd Wade, Jason Fabini and Stephon Heyer), along with third-round pick Chad Rinehart, who has made a positive early impression.
