The Redskins are topic A in DC these days, and while most are rightly focused on the availability of Robert Griffin III this Sunday, the team took time off the field this week to give back through their charitable organization. A number of players went down to Macy's at 12th and G streets to donate 300 coats and other winter clothing items to underprivileged youths. Josh Morgan, a DC native, talked about giving back to his hometown community, particularly around the holidays (via Andrew Walker of Redskins.com):

"I'm basically just doing it because that was basically instilled in me growing up as a child," he said. "My grandmother and my godmother always told me that God was going to bless you with all the blessings that God was going to bless you with; you've got to continue to bless other people."

Joining Morgan were several other offensive stars, including Alfred Morris, Fred Davis, and Logan Paulsen. Sav Rocca and Doug Worthington also participated in the afternoon.
