Redskins' Jay Gruden: We'll go into 2015 with Robert Griffin as 'No. 1 guy'
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/18/15) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said during Wednesday's combine presser that he anticipates Robert Griffin III being the starting quarterback heading into the 2015 season, per the team's official website.
"Robert ended the season as the starter and we anticipate that going forward," Gruden said. "We'll go into the season with Robert as our No. 1 guy."
The Redskins finished last in the NFC East in 2014 with a 4-12 record. Griffin, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, went 2-5 in seven starts this season and missed several weeks due to an ankle injury. He played in nine games in 2014 and threw for 1,694 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions. He is 14-21 in three seasons with Washington.
Redskins leave RG3 off of letter to season-ticket owners
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2/5/15) Either it was a simple mistake or an indication of how the Redskins truly feel about quarterback Robert Griffin III.
In a letter sent to season-ticket holders, the Redskins thanks fans for their support while mentioning the core group of players that are poised to lead the organization back into the winning column. One notable name was left off.
"Head Coach Jay Gruden, new General Manager Scot McCloughan, and Defensive Coordinator Joe Barry will lead a nucleus of Ryan Kerrigan, DeSean Jackson, plus Pro Bowlers Trent Williams and Alfred Morris. The Redskins are poised to rebound next season!" the letter read, via The Washington Post.
Griffin, the Redskins' No. 2 overall pick in 2012, was not included in this group.
Griffin enjoyed phenomenal success as a rookie, throwing for 3,200 yards, 20 touchdowns and five touchdowns while running for 815 yards and seven touchdowns. Following an ACL tear during the 2012 postseason, Griffin hasn't been the same. After returning from a dislocated ankle this past season, Griffin was benched in favor of Colt McCoy.
Griffin played in nine games in 2014 and threw for 1,694 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions.
RG3: 'I could've sat out the rest of last year' after hurting ankle
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/29/15) During a radio interview Wednesday night, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III indicated the dislocated ankle he suffered in Week 2 against the Jaguars hindered him the rest of the season. He missed six games due to the injury.
“I had never suffered an ankle injury of that severity before, so I didn’t really know what to expect,” Griffin said, per The Washington Times. “It just became more and more tough the more games that we lost, because you know how hard your guys work, and you want to get out there and help them win games.
“I could’ve sat out the rest of last year, with how bad the ankle was, but I felt like I could play, and I wanted to get out there and play with my guys and help them win games. And that didn’t happen when I got back out there. Then coach made a decision [to bench me]. That was an unfortunate decision, and something we all had to go with because that was coach’s choice.”
Griffin will be entering the final guaranteed year of his contract in 2015. The Redskins have until May 3 to decide if they want to exercise the fifth-year option on his contract for 2016.
Griffin added his focus this offseason will simply be on getting healthy.
“Last year, I wasn’t healthy, and it sucked,” Griffin told ESPN 980. “There’s no other way to say it other than that. When you dislocate your ankle in the second week of the season, when you and your team had big things in mind. So I guess it’s just getting healthy, getting a mental break, getting a chance to spend time with family, and then formulate my plan going forward from this year so we can go out there and win games.”
RG3 on Deflategate: 'I didn't know the ball had to be a certain weight'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
As Deflategate pushes into Day 11 on Thursday, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is the latest in the long list of current or former professional football players to weigh in on underinflated footballs being used in the AFC Champhionship Game. Although, his take on the issue might be a first.
“I didn't even know that the ball had to be a certain weight,” Griffin told Chris Russell in an interview on ESPN 980 on Wednesday night, per CSNWashington.com. “I know they pump up the balls and they get inspected before every game. But I wasn't aware that the ball had to be at a certain limit, or higher, which is interesting. I think it’s very interesting.”
While Griffin said he was unaware of the rules, he added he does pay attention to how he can grip the football before each game. If the football doesn't meet Griffin's standards, he said he tosses it aside.
“I think it could be something that we look at going into the future about how much we pump up the ball,” Griffin said. “But at the same time, for me, going this far in my career, all we worry about is, can we grip the ball? Not how much air is in it.
“I just think it's really funny,” Griffin added with a chuckle, “especially when you don't specify that you're talking about footballs. …I think I said balls seven times already.”
Kirk Cousins would like to be traded, if RG3 named starting QB
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/29/14) Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins said he would like to be traded if Robert Griffin III is named the starting quarterback for 2015, according to NBCWashington.com.
Cousins said there is no point to remaining with the team, if there is no quarterback competition. Cousins will be in the final year of his rookie contract in 2015.
"Isn't it obvious I couldn't stay here," Cousins said about wanting a trade, if RG3 is named the starter.
Cousins went 1-4 in five starts in 2014 and is 2-7 in nine career starts. He has thrown more interceptions (19) than passing touchdowns (18) in 14 career games. He also has a 59 percent career completion rate.
|Robert Griffin III is ready for a rebound year, and we expect him to bounce back in a big way. Griffin was miserable in 2013 in his attempt to come back from a tough knee injury in the 2012 playoffs. He passed for 3,203 yards, 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions on 60 percent completions, and he ran 86 times for 489 yards and no touchdowns before being benched for the final three games. Compare that to his rookie year when he had 3,200 passing yards, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions on 66 percent completions and 120 carries for 815 yards and seven touchdowns, and you can see the drop-off. Griffin was hindered last year by a knee brace and limited offseason work, but the brace is gone and Griffin has been working out all offseason. He also got two new weapons in DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts, and along with Pierre Garcon and Jordan Reed, Griffin's receiving corps could be dominant. We like Griffin as a Top 10 Fantasy quarterback coming into the year. He's worth drafting with a mid-round pick, and he could provide big rewards, especially if he's comfortable running again. There's obvious injury risk with Griffin, but quarterback is deep with plenty of No. 2 quarterbacks to pair him with. He could easily rebound as a Top 10 or even Top 5 Fantasy quarterback this year, and we're excited for his outlook.
