The first week of the offseason program has concluded and the anticipation to get onto the field with pads has only just commenced.
For many players, this represents a time to reconnect with their teammates just as much as it means the opportunity to get back into the Redskins' weight room.
And for the first time since the end of the regular season, the majority of the team shared stories about their offseasons, met the new players signed and coaches hired in their absence and began the pursuit of a championship again.
Just how exactly are players feeling this week though? We asked many of them between workouts and after meetings to describe their first few days back in the building with each other in a word or a phrase. Here were their responses (Take their answers for what they're worth).
