Team Bonding: Paintball Style

There’s nothing quite like a night out with the guys to create a stronger bond.

Some of the Washington Redskins spent a night playing a little paintball and Robert Griffin III gave us a pre-paint explosion photo.

By the looks of this picture, if they wanted to break into units similar to that on the gridiron during practice (offense vs. defense) offense would win—in a landslide.

Pierre Garcon may run away from Griffin III on Sundays in pursuit of a field-stretching play, but he may have been escaping his personal space bubble on this day to avoid a flying paintball coming his way.

As for Alfred Morris, this wasn’t his first go-round on a paintball course.

Last June, Morris joined a group of fans for what they thought would be a casual game. That casual game turned into a three-hour excursion with the running back followed by some go-karting. Check out this story for more.


ABOUT THE REDSKINS: Headquartered at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia, and owned by Daniel Snyder, the historic Washington Redskins Football Club has won five World Championship titles including the 1937 and 1942 National Football League Championship games, as well as Super Bowls XVII, XXII and XXVI. Founded in 1932 as the Boston Braves in Massachusetts, the team changed its name to the Redskins in 1933 and relocated to Washington, D.C., in 1937. Since then, the team has become one of the most recognizable professional sports franchises in history, featuring multiple Hall of Fame coaches, 19 members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame (with seven others who also were Redskins) and becoming the first team in the NFL with an official marching band and fight song, "Hail to the Redskins." The Redskins have been owned by Dan Snydersince 1999, and beginning in 1997, began playing their home games at FedExField in Landover, Md.
