The 2017 Burgundy and Gold football season is officially underway as training began Thursday at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center in Richmond, VA.

The team will spend about a month working on conditioning, drills and game-plans as they work towards finalizing a 53 man roster that hopes to make it to the post-season.
