The Washington Redskins know how to but a bow on training camp.
The team was ready to break camp in Richmond, Va., and head back to the team facility in Ashburn, Va. But before that, a lineman had to field a punt. Hilarious footage ensued from this unorthodox challenge.
Chris Baker stepped up to give it a crack, but squandered multiple opportunities to end practice. That prompted 313-pound defensive end Ricky Jean Francois to step in and show everyone how it’s done.

And with that, practice was over. But Francois wasn’t done telling Baker all about his catch. The eight-year veteran took to Twitter to add some more salt to the wound.

Baker was full of excuses.

Perhaps this rivalry will be renewed next summer when the Redskins head back to Richmond to begin training camp. Until then, Francois holds the bragging rights.
