The team also unveiled a pair of new tee-shirt designs that are available in the team store for $12 each.
The Redskins said the designs were inspired by the way they feel about veterans and their families.

The NFL also released a video that features a tribute to former Redskins running back Chris Thompson, who died last year after battling brain cancer.

Thompson was drafted by the New York Giants in the fifth round of the 2001 NFL draft and signed as a free agent.
He spent five seasons with the team and had a career-high 1,095 rushing yards as a rookie in 2003.
