Redskins mark 80th year with bubble, throwbacks
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) The Washington Redskins will celebrate their 80th anniversary season with a new dome and some old-looking uniforms.
The Redskins unveiled their new indoor practice bubble Thursday and the throwback uniforms they'll wear for two home games this season.
The uniforms feature a deeper burgundy jersey with burnished gold pants and helmets. The helmets have been designed to resemble footballs.
The bubble has been a priority since Mike Shanahan became coach two years ago. The Redskins and Cincinnati Bengals had been the northernmost NFL teams without an indoor practice facility.
