It’s not often that you see footage of NFL coaches working out. But Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden is breaking the mold for coaches.
During Wednesday’s practice, Gruden decided that since his players were putting in a good amount of work, he should too. So he decided to drop down and do some Push-Ups. Normally when you work out, people show support, but that’s not the reaction Gruden got from the Redskins players.
Erin Hawksworth of ABC7
went into the locker room after practice to see what the players thought of Gruden’s Push-Ups. To put it mildly, they were not impressed. Gruden had poor form and did not extend or lock out his arms. Most of the players thought his form was “trash” but then gave him credit for trying.
The Redskins are 5-3-1 and in third place in the tough NFC East.
