Redskins mark 80th year with bubble, throwbacks

The Washington Redskins will celebrate their 80th anniversary

season with a new dome and some old-looking uniforms.

The Redskins unveiled their new indoor practice bubble Thursday

and the throwback uniforms they’ll wear for two home games this

season.

The uniforms feature a deeper burgundy jersey with burnished

gold pants and helmets. The helmets have been designed to resemble

footballs.

The bubble has been a priority since Mike Shanahan became coach

two years ago. The Redskins and Cincinnati Bengals had been the

northernmost NFL teams without an indoor practice facility.
