206 days. That's how long its been since the Washington Redskins played a game.
While the players won't take the field to play any opposition for a full 60-minute game until Aug. 7 (against the New England Patriots at FedExField), they have arrived in Richmond, Va., to get the 2014 season started at training camp.
Starting tomorrow, the players will give it their all on the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center practice fields, hoping to lay that first brick to an eventual NFC East crown -- the second in three seasons -- and more.
Over the last few hours, some of the players have taken to social media, exclaiming their joy of being back in the Commonwealth's capital city to get it going again.
Have a look at what they've been saying below (click on Instagram photos for complete captions):
