Redskins new kicker was practicing in public park with his wife last week

Wednesday September 16th, 2015

The Redskins have a new kicker in Dustin Hopkins after parting ways with Kai Forbath following the season opener, and Hopkins may need some time to acclimate himself to the change in venue, as just last week he was practicing his craft in a public park with his wife serving as his holder.

Hopkins will not be the only one kicking on the grass of FedEx Field for the first time on Sunday, as Washington put out an offer to season-ticket holders to come onto the field after the game against the Rams to try to boot a ball through the uprights.

The Redskins are 0–1 after losing their opener to the Dolphins 17–10.
