ASHBURN, Va. -- Trent Williams got several of his fellow Washington Redskins offensive linemen to fly to Texas during the offseason. His pitch was pretty good.Williams wants to harken back to the days of the Redskins famous Hogs -- the offensive linemen of the 1980s and early 1990s who paved the way to three Super Bowls. Williams has branded the 2016 Washington line as Hogs 2.0, complete with shirts, hats and the mentality that the group will follow the footsteps of Russ Grimm and Joe Jacoby.The four-time Pro Bowl left tackle hosted a three-day workout at a training facility in Houston attended by starters Morgan Moses, Spencer Long and 10 other linemen. Williams debated the Hogs 2.0 name because he didnt want to add extra pressure, but the goal of the workout was to set a goal for a work ethic.Not putting the expectation that we plan on being the Hogs, but were just showing that respect that we want to play like them and we admire them and we know thats the standard, Williams said during the teams training camp in Richmond, Virginia. I didnt want to just bring a bunch of guys together to come and hang out and have beers or whatnot. I told them before they came we were going to work pretty hard. You cant get in shape in three days, but we were going to put it to the test, see where everybody was, and we were going to (enhance) fellowship at night over dinner.Offensive line coach Bill Callahan sees the benefit as twofold: not only did Williams put younger, less experienced linemen through drills and help them with fundamentals, but the group got to bond. For all the extra work Callahan puts linemen through after practices, theres already the buy-in for voluntarily going to Williams event, and the memories from going through it.Williams said that made the players closer as a group.We put the hard work in the bank, the 28-year-old offensive line leader said. We did it together. We can go in the locker room and sit and talk about how hard it was to get through it.The workouts took place at O Athletik, a new facility Williams owns along with Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and others. According to the Houston Chronicle, O Athletik includes a boxing gym, sand pit, indoor artificial turf, a steep man-made hill and underwater treadmills.The workouts were really challenging and that helps when you have to rely on each other to push each other through that kind of stuff as an offensive line, because thats what we do in games, said Long, whos competing with Shawn Lauvao to start at left guard.Tight end Niles Paul didnt attend this specific workout but said he threw up after Williams put him through the rigors before. He has noticed a marked improvement in the offensive line over the years, with Williams as the guiding force.Williams, entering his seventh NFL season, sees strides in his teammates even since last year. He missed the first two preseason games with a sore right knee and liked what he saw from backup Ty Nsehke.He definitely got a lot better over the offseason, Williams said Monday. I think if you watch him closely you can see the improvements. Its glaring. It (isnt) anything you would have to search hard for. Thats just a good credit to Ty and the coaching and how hes received the coaching.And its a credit to Williams, who has taken a leadership role for the Redskins as a whole, not just on the offensive line. Kirk Cousins carries some of that now as the starting quarterback, but Williams has the seniority and the long-term track record as an elite performer.Trents one of the guys in the locker room that people gravitate to, Paul said. Hes probably the most respected guy in the locker room. His leadership is important out here, and to have him step up and say, `Hogs 2.0, thats a big thing, thats a big deal and he means that.Game notesCoach Jay Gruden said Tuesday he has a total expectation rookie WR Josh Doctson will be ready for Week 1 against the Steelers. Doctson still hasnt practiced with the team because of an Achilles tendon injury. ... Gruden said WR Jamison Crowder hurt his knee in the second preseason game against the Jets and doesnt know if hell be ready to play Friday against Buffalo.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFLYeezy Boost 350 V2 Sesame Cheap .

To get the job done yesterday was significant.Quinn likes that its not just quarterback Matt Ryan, receiver Julio Jones and cornerback Desmond Trufant, the teams most talented defender, making plays this year.After starting last year 6-1 and missing the playoffs in Quinns first season, Atlanta is getting contributions from unexpected sources like receiver Taylor Gabriel, tight end Austin Hooper and veteran safety Kemal Ishmael.Two veterans, receiver Mohamed Sanu and defensive end Adrian Clayborn, stepped up in Sundays 33-32 win over Green Bay to fill big roles.Sanu, whom the Falcons signed early in the free agency, caught the winning touchdown pass as the Packers double-teamed Jones, the NFLs leading receiver at kickoff, on seemingly every snap.Jones tweaked his knee early in the game and was targeted just five times, catching three passes for 29 yards, but he freed up Sanu, Gabriel, Hooper and others to get free in man-to-man matchups.Sanu was targeted 10 times and finished with a team-high nine catches, five on the winning drive, for 84 yards.For a guy with his size to have that kind of catching radius -- Matt can put it away from a defender -- hell go get it, Quinn said. That totally shows up. Weve thrown some screens to him where he has to lower his shoulder and become a runner to earn some extra yards after contact. I like that part of his game as well.Clayborn had a third-down sack in the third quarter and another early in the fourth. The Packers had to punt from midfield both times.Gabriel, a second-year veteran originally signed as a college frree agent by Cleveland, caught a stunning 47-yard touchdown pass late in the first quarter.ddddddddddddooper, a third-round pick, took charge after starting tight end Jacob Tamme went down with a shoulder injury on the first possession. He caught all five of his targeted passes for 51 yards.Ishmael, with a team-leading 50 tackles, filled in earlier this year for starting rookie safety Keanu Neal and played a couple of games at linebacker when Atlanta had injuries to DeVondre Campbell, Deion Jones and Sean Weatherspoon.Sanu said the players have bought in to Quinns message of resiliency.We were going back-and-forth, back-and-forth and once we had the ball with four minutes left, I was like, `We got to go down and score, Sanu said. It was me and Julio on one side, and so I motioned out to where we were. But Julio ran outside and drew two guys and left me one-on-one with the linebacker.Game notesJones was checked out by doctors and cleared to practice Monday. Quinn said he will be ready to start against Tampa Bay. ... Tamme, the teams fourth-leading receiver with 22 catches for 210 yards, will not play this week because of an injured shoulder. ... RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) and DE Dwight Freeney (quadriceps) did not practice. ... Jones, LG Andy Levtire (foot), DT Grady Jarrett (shoulder) and CB Brian Poole (foot) were limited in practice. ... Three of the Falcons seven penalties came in the first half for an illegal formation as Gabriel, RT Ryan Schraeder and Jones were flagged. Quinn said the officials penalized Atlanta for covering up the receiver at the line of scrimmage. We just backed our tight end up more, he said. They were treating it as a shift and it was a motion. More of a procedural call for them.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
