For the third time in the last five years, the Washington Redskins will hold joint training camp practices in Richmond, this time with the New York Jets.
The Washington Redskins will have some company once again during training camp this year.
The Redskins announced on Tuesday that they will be holding joint practices with the New York Jets from Sunday, Aug. 12 through Tuesday, Aug. 14 at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center in Richmond, Va.
Check out these photos of the past matchups between the Redskins and Jets.
Times and details for each session will be announced at a later date. All other training camp dates will be released at a later time as well.
"I'm extremely excited to welcome the Jets to Richmond for three days of practice," Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said. "In the past, joint practices have given our coaching staff a great opportunity to evaluate our players in competitive situations against other teams, and we look forward to having that opportunity again this year by hosting the Jets."
These practices will lead up to the Redskins' preseason home opener, which will take place on Thursday, Aug. 16.
That game will be televised on ESPN.
"The Washington Redskins' training camp in Richmond is an outstanding opportunity for Virginians to see their favorite players up close and spend a day with family and friends in one of the most exciting cities in the country," Gov. Ralph Northam said. "On behalf of my fellow Virginians, I am thrilled to welcome the New York Jets to the Commonwealth as they and the Redskins prepare for the upcoming NFL season."
This will mark the third time Washington has held joint practices since the team began training camp work in Richmond.
In 2014, the Redskins hosted the New England Patriots before the Houston Texans – who were on HBO's HARD KNOCKS -- came to town in 2015.
The Redskins this offseason acquired a new franchise quarterback in three-time Pro Bowler Alex Smith.
Additionally, this will be the first training camp for the team's 2018 draft class, which features first-round pick Da'Ron Payne along with 2016 All-American running back Derrius Guice.
Virginia Tech products Tim Settle and Greg Stroman were also selected by the Redskins.
As for the Jets, they have a trio of quarterbacks on the roster in veteran Josh McCown along with 2014 first-round pick Teddy Bridgewater and 2018 first-round pick Sam Darnold.
The Jets also have two former Redskins on their roster in center Spencer Long and wide receiver Terrelle Pryor Sr.
