Mike Shanahan: Indoor Practice Facility For Washington Redskins Is A 'Priority'

Considering how much this team is worth, the idea of a bunch of players carpooling to go practice on a basketball court is kind of ridiculous. It's hard to argue with Joe Gibbs' logic, but times have changed. Nearly every team has an indoor facility now, and the Redskins should probably follow suit.
