Redskins' Garcon visits Richmond

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

The entire Redskins team will visit Richmond for training camp this summer, but one of Washington's bigger contributors stopped by the River City on Monday.

Redskins' wide receiver Pierre Garcon stopped by Capital One West Creek Town Center to help teach kids financial skills. Capital One and the NFL were teaming up to teach children ages eleven through 18 knowledge of finances using the financial football video game.  The game is football themed and allows players to pick their favorite teams.  Answering financial questions right allows the player to matriculate the ball down the field towards the endzone, but a wrong answer results in a play of negative yardage.

Garcon said during his stop that he's looking forward to spending time with Richmond area Redskins' fans come July.
