VIRGINIA, COME OUT AND PLAY: In Richmond, Michael Phillips reported Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell on Friday "threw the commonwealth's hat in the ring" for a potential new stadium for the Redskins after the team's FedExField lease expires in '27. Redskins officials are "beginning behind-the-scenes discussions about what comes next." McDonnell said, "We'd love that opportunity. If the right group of business and government folks came together to make an offer, it could happen." Redskins Exec VP & GM Bruce Allen said, "We’ve been looking at different options. As we’ve noticed with other NFL teams, it really is a 10-year process when you’re going to build a new stadium these days. There’s people -- you know, Prince George’s County loves us, obviously the District would like to have us and we love our home in Ashburn, too" (RICHMOND TIMES-DISPATCH, 8/17).
