Over the offseason, The Redskins Blog has been providing you with a different look at the franchise's past.

Unlike Throwback Thursday where we've looked at important moments on the gridiron against an upcoming opponent, this series will examine some of the lighter moments as we go through all of the photos stored at Redskins Park in Loudoun County, Va.

Stretch it out, Riggo!

We brought out this old photo – captured May 12, 1983 – as the first week of offseason conditioning has returned players to Redskins Park.

In fact, while running back John Riggins didn't have head strength and condition coach Mike Clark to aid him in workouts, it seems like he was on the same page as the Redskins' current roster.

Just look at linebacker Trent Murphy. Close right?


For the record, Riggins tallied career highs in touchdowns (24) and rushing yards (1,347) in 1983.
