Redskins fans have been overwhelmed by good news recently. First there was the exit of Vinny Cerrato. Then came the hiring of Mike Shanahan.
The latest is the announcement that the team is planning a major upgrade at FedEx Field.
The Washington Post reports the team has started mailing out letters to ticket holders, announcing plans to add two massive high-definition video boards. According to the Post, the screens will be 30 feet tall by 100 feet wide. They’ll be placed in each end zone.
For years, Redskins fans have complained about the size of the current video boards. The new ones should be in place by the preseason.
The news comes just one week after the Redskins announced ticket prices are holding steady for the fifth year in a row.
