33 Tryout Players Participating In Redskins Rookie Minicamp


Among the 59 players eligible to compete in the Washington Redskins' 2016 rookie minicamp this weekend are 33 tryout players.

The Washington Redskins will have 33 tryout players for rookie minicamp this weekend at Redskins Park in Loudoun County, Va.

The Washington Redskins signed 15 college free agents shortly after the 2016 NFL Draft. Take a look at who they are.

Among the 33 tryout players participating are Oregon quarterback Vernon Adams, who earned Offensive East-West Shrine Game MVP honors earlier this year, and Bowling Green running back Travis Greene, who ran for nearly 1,300 yards and 15 touchdowns last season and tallied 65 carries of 15 or more yards during his college career.

Here's the list of the rookie minicamp tryout players:

Last year, linebacker Houston Bates was among the tryout players the Redskins brought in for rookie minicamp.

Bates impressed not only that weekend, but the entire season, as he signed with the team the week following rookie minicamp and even earned a practice squad spot before being called up to the active roster on Nov. 7.

"I didn't really expect to go undrafted, so to be undrafted was obviously a chip on my shoulder," Bates said last June. "I have a point to prove by making the team, doing the best that I can, and getting on an NFL team of 53. I just want to be on a team, and to be with these guys, a great team, a great organization is a blessing honestly. I'm just going to further my dream and keep pushing forward. That's my motivation right now."
