I’ve had fun working with the guys, Richardson said. One thing I learned soon as I got here, they don’t have big egos, so it’s easier for us to learn from one another. It’s crazy what I’ve learned over the years from my high school coaches to college, to be able to come here and be able to open their eyes to certain stuff. And then they’re helping me learn the offense and showing me how to run routes here and where the timing is.

I think it’s good. It’s not like that everywhere. Guys aren’t trying to get other guys ready that play the same position. So that’s healthy.The potential is there. The Redskins just need everyone on the same page as quickly as possible and for those youngsters to take the next step in their progression.

Watt, a three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, suffered a broken leg in Week 5. Watson was off to an MVP-caliber start in his rookie season before suffering a torn ACL in late October. The dual-threat quarterback passed for almost 1,700 yards and 19 touchdowns in seven games.

This news correlates with recent updates on both players. Texans coach Bill O’Brien said at the NFL meetings in late March that Watson was ahead of schedule, but there’s still a lot of work to put in.

The relationship is new and budding, and Stewart’s initial observations of Barkley are all positive.

The classic Sports Illustrated photo shoot of a smiling Namath, the AFL’s prize, the big apple of Jets owner Sonny Werblin’s eyes, is how it all started. A $427,000 star was born.

When Joe Namath walks into a room, Werblin said, you know he’s there. When any other high-priced rookie walks in, he’s just a nice-looking young man.

For Werblin, a former Hollywood executive, there was no business like Joe business.
