Redskins: Picking up Robert Griffin's option a 'no brainer'
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(6/1/15) The Redskins picked up the option on Robert Griffin III's rookie contract last month, and the decision wasn't a difficult one.
Team president Bruce Allen said it was a "no brainer" to keep Griffin for a fifth season at $16.155 million, per NFL.com.
"We think Robert is a starting quarterback. We've seen him win; we've seen him win big games," Allen said. "We know his talent. It really was a no-brainer. I think if you asked us six months before, it would have been the same decision."
Redskins' coach says RG3 was 'doing fine' in first OTA
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/26/15) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said quarterback Robert Griffin III looked good and was "doing fine" during Thursday's OTA. Gruden also said Griffin's work ethic "has never been a question", according to the Washington Post.
Gruden went on to say that he still believes familiarity will help Griffin's confidence this season.
For his part, Griffin said he felt good being on the field and he's glad to have some continuity this season amongst the league, coach, and himself.
Shanahan: Struggles of Robert Griffin III unrelated to injury
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) Former Redskins coach Mike Shanahan does not believe injuries have prevented quarterback Robert Griffin III from maximizing his potential in the NFL. Rather, he feels it was the team not creating an offensive system that best fits his talents and his own belief that he could play a traditional role at that position.
Griffin sustained a serious knee injury in the 2012 playoffs. He then struggled in 2013 in an offense designed to transform him into a drop-back quarterback rather than one that took advantage of his mobility. He suffered another knee injury last year and did not perform well in the offense of new coach Jay Gruden.
"I don't think getting hurt has anything to do with it," Shanahan told 106.7 The Fan. "In college he didn't have a route tree, didn't have a playbook. That does take some time. ... If you take a quarterback like that you must run the kind of system that allows him to be successful. ... I really believe Robert thought he was more of a drop-back quarterback. He hasn't done things the NFL asks you to do. It does take some growing pains. You better really work on it inside and out."
Some have wondered why the Redskins went so hard after Griffin if they weren't willing to create an offense that maximizes his skill set.
Redskins' Robert Griffin III only focused on this season, not contracts
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/12/15) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III knows he will have to prove to those in the front office he should be their quarterback of the future this season. Because of that, Griffin is only worried about the upcoming season, according to CSN Washington.
"I'm not worried about next year. I'm worried about this year."
Griffin has played 37 of a possible 48 games so far in his career, throwing for 8,097 yards with 40 touchdowns and 23 interceptions. Griffin noted he's feeling better heading into Year 2 in Jay Gruden's offense.
"Yeah, you definitely feel a difference," Griffin said. "The day you stop changing and adapting yourself and growing as a player is the day that you shouldn't be playing anymore. Every year you step on that field, you find those things you want to work on. You listen to your coaches and work on the things they want you to work on. You become a better and better player."
Redskins pick up QB Robert Griffin III's fifth-year option
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(4/27/15) Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan announced Monday that the team will pick up quarterback Robert Griffin III's fifth-year option for the 2016 season, a move worth $16.155 million, per The Washington Post.
The Redskins have already announced that Griffin will be the starter this season, and locking him up would not affect the team's plans, if they have any, to draft a quarterback. NFL Media insider Albert Breer said the team views the option as a franchise tag of sorts.
The risk comes in that if Griffin is hurt during this season, the Redskins would be on the hook to pay the full $16 million. If Griffin does not perform well in 2015, the Redskins could release the quarterback without taking a salary-cap hit.
Griffin threw for 1,694 yards and four touchdowns with six interceptions last season.
|You should know what to expect from Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III by now. He was great as a rookie in 2012, but he has been a colossal disappointment each of the past two seasons. Injuries have been part of the problem, but he has also struggled to repeat his rookie success when he was the No. 6 Fantasy quarterback in standard leagues. Coach Jay Gruden plans to keep Griffin as his starter, but Fantasy owners have little faith in him as a starting option. He should be considered a low-end No. 2 quarterback on Draft Day worth a late-round pick in the majority of leagues. If he is able to rebound -- his rushing totals will be crucial since he had 815 yards and seven touchdowns in 2012 and 665 yards and one touchdown the past two years -- then you could be looking at a steal based on what he showed in 2012. But that season seems like a long time ago based on his performance the past two years, and we're not optimistic he can ever regain that form.
