What would a birthday be without a picture of a teammate hug? (FYI: This photo was taken last August.)
Things have been awfully serious on the blog recently, and it’s time to freshen things up. Fortunately, defensive end Jarvis Jenkins was kind enough to be born 24 years ago today, and is celebrating his one and only “golden birthday.”
For those of you that don’t know, the golden birthday is the year you turn the age of your birth date–so in this case, age 24 on the 24th. Jenkins is the third Redskins player to celebrate a golden birthday this offseason, with fellow lineman Stephen Bowen turning 28 on March 28 and receiver Anthony Armstrong turning 29 the next day.
Jenkins announced his birthday early this morning on Twitter and has been fielding congratulatory messages all day:
Happy birthday Double-J, and back to work tomorrow!
