Redskins Players Hit The (Pokemon) Gym


In five days, Pokemon GO has dawned a social revolution (the above photo is Junior Galette's Pokemon avatar, not exactly a spitting image).

While Redskins players may seem superhuman, many of them are just as addicted to the game as everyone else. The defense is particularly obsessed with catching them all, hopefully foreshadowing plenty of interceptions in 2016.

With players in the midst of their offseason workouts, Pokemon GO has done the unthinkable: Get Redskins players to spend even more time in the gym.
