The Redskins will release their full preseason schedule this afternoon, but we already know when it will start thanks to the Ravens.

Washington kicks off preseason on Thursday, Aug. 13 at Baltimore at 7:30 p.m. That also means training camp should start on Wednesday July 29.


The Redskins, meanwhile, will play host to the Patriots in the third preseason game: Friday, Aug. 28 at 8 p.m. at FedEx Field. That game will mark the return of cornerback Shawn Springs, a Redskins starter from 2004 to ‘08.

More to come, shortly.
