RG3 meeting with independent neurologist later in the week


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2015) Redskins backup quarterback Robert Griffin III will be evaluated later in the week by an independent neurologist to check for lingering concussion symptoms, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Tuesday. He is expected to be re-tested Thursday or Friday.

Redskins name Kirk Cousins Week 1 starter


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/31/2015) The drama never stops in D.C. and according to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora, the Redskins have informed players that they are planning to have Kirk Cousins start their Week 1 contest against the Dolphins and not Robert Griffin III, who is apparently battling a concussion problem. 

There are reports of a rift between the football operations and ownership regarding Griffin, who has struggled this preseason before getting injured in the team's second preseason contest against Detroit. Griffin was cleared to play in the team's third preseason game before an independent neurologist reversed course, saying Griffin was still dealing with concussion-related symptoms.

Cousins has played well during the preseason, going 40-for-53 for 435 yards. 


Report: Redskins front office, coaches want Robert Griffin III out


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/30/2015) Members of the Redskins front office and coaching staff want the Robert Griffin III era in Washington to be over, but are being met with resistance from team ownership, according to ESPN.com.

Griffin is out with concussion-like symptoms and quarterback Kirk Cousins has already been tabbed the starter for Week 1 against the Dolphins.

Washington has had trade discussions involving Griffin with other teams, but have not received much interest in return.

Griffin was the second-overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. He was named the 2012 Offensive Rookie of the Year after a dynamic season in which he amassed over 4,000 yards of offense and scored a combined 27 touchdowns.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Griffin left early in the second quarter and will now undergo concussion protocol. Jay Gruden claimed the shoulder was OK, per NFL.com.

"I would imagine, depending on how long he's out, he's still going to be our starter," Gruden added. "But we have to wait and go through the whole process and see how he recovers."

Griffin took some hard hits during his time in the game as the line failed to protect him. But he was hurt on a play in which he fumbled without being touched. He got nailed by several Lions after falling on the ball and remained on the ground for a few minutes.

Redskins: Picking up Robert Griffin's option a 'no brainer'


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2015) 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
(5/26/2015) 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
(5/22/2015) 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
(5/12/2015) 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
(4/27/2015) 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.


Redskins' Jay Gruden: RG3 'still in the developmental stages'


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) Redskins coach Jay Gruden is entering the offseason with hopes that Robert Griffin III will develop into the quarterback he needs for his system. 

A year ago, Griffin struggled offensively when healthy, which helped contribute to a 4-12 overall record. 

“Robert has a good understanding of our system and what we want and I think I have a good understanding of what he is as a quarterback,” Gruden said, via ESPN.com. “He’s a quarterback still in the developmental stages. I have a good understanding of what he needs and he has a good understanding of what we’re looking for, and hopefully, moving forward, he’ll be a more confident and decisive quarterback, and I’ll have a better understanding of what he’s comfortable with and give him opportunities to succeed.”


Redskins' Gruden wants confidence, improvement for RG3


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said that he wants to see improvement from quarterback Robert Griffin III, according to the Washington Post. He also added that he would like to see Griffin's confidence level raised after being named the starter going into the 2015 season.

“I don’t know how much of his confidence has wavered up and down. You’ll have to ask him,” Gruden said during the NFC coaches breakfast at the NFL annual meetings in Phoenix. “But I think Robert has always been a very confident guy, a very confident quarterback, and I don’t think he’s ever lacked in that department. But if he has wavered a little bit because of the last couple years, then it’s good for him to come into this year, knowing that he’s the starter and that the guys are behind him, and the coaches and we’ll see what he can do. He’ll have every opportunity to succeed.”

The team recently said that they would consider the possibility of taking a quarterback with the fifth pick of the draft this year.

Griffin III, 25, has thrown for 8,097 yards with 40 touchdowns and 23 interceptions in three seasons. He has also rushed for 1,480 yards and eight touchdowns.


Redskins' Gruden backs GM on potentially drafting QB with fifth pick


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Redskins coach Jay Gruden echoed the sentiments of general manager Scott McCloughan, who said Tuesday the team would not hesitate to take a quarterback with the fifth pick in the NFL Draft.

With the Bucs widely expected to take Jamies Winston with the No. 1 pick in the draft, Marcus Mariota could still be on the board when the Redskins pick.

“It’s something we have to talk about in-house,” Gruden said Wednesday, per CSNWashington.com. “If we think it’s worth the risk to hit the reset button, if he’s that good of a football player, if we decide in the building that he’s that good of a football player that we think we should do that, then we should do that.

“We’ll see. That has not been determined yet, obviously. We have some time to determine whether or not we want to go that direction. [Mariota] is a heck of an athlete, I’ll tell you that. And Jameis is a heck of passer. Two very good options to have if you are in need of a quarterback and you think you want to go that direction, then they are both worth going that direction for probably.”

The Redskins are still debating whether to pick up the fifth-year option for quarterback Robert Griffin III.


GM: Redskins could take QB at No. 5; undecided on RG3's option


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan said his organization has yet to decide if they will pick up quarterback Robert Griffin III's fifth-year option, according to CSN Washington

“We’ve had some early discussion on it,” McCloughan said. “We’re still talking it through.”

McCloughan also said the club would consider drafting a QB at No. 5.

Griffin is entering the final year of the rookie contract he signed in 2012. After a great first season that ended with a torn ACL in the playoffs, Griffin has struggled on the field the past two seasons. 

May 3 is the deadline for teams to pick up fifth-year options. 

Griffin's 2014 season saw him only account for 1,694 passing yards and four touchdowns with six interceptions. He was benched in favor of backup Colt McCoy during the year. 


Jay Gruden: Robert Griffin 'has to do a good job' if he wants to start


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Although Redskins coach Jay Gruden has named Robert Griffin III the team's starting quarterback for the 2015 season, Griffin will have to play well to maintain the job, reports ESPN.com.

"It's not etched in stone," Gruden said. "Guys will still come in and compete. Kirk and Colt won't lay down, but they understand their role. But for Robert moving forward it's important for him to know that everybody is excited for him and will work hard for him and he just has to do a good job."

The Redskins also have quarterbacks Kirk Cousins and Colt McCoy on their roster and Gruden said it's good to establish a hierarchy early.

"It's important for somebody to have a starting block," Gruden said. "This is where we are now and this is where we'd like to be."


Orakpo on RG3: 'He'll be able to turn it around once' he's healthy


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2015) He may be now with the Titans, but former Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo still thinks Robert Griffin III can succeed in Washington, D.C., according to NFL.com. Orakpo said in an interview with Sirius XM on Thursday that if the 25-year-old quarterback can stay healthy, he'll "prove everybody wrong."

"I always tried to stay positive with him when he was handling all that adversity that he was going through," said Orakpo, who shared a locker next to Griffin when he was in Washington. "I think he'll be able to turn it around once he's able to stay healthy, and (he'll) prove everybody wrong. And don't be too much worried about the criticism and the bad stuff that goes around being the quarterback of a big-time franchise like the Redskins. I think it will turn around eventually for him, once he stays healthy and kind of, you know, eliminates all the negativity around him."


Report: Redskins re-signing QB Colt McCoy


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/17/2015) The Redskins are re-signing quarterback Colt McCoy, leaving them with the same trio of quarterbacks as last year, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. McCoy played well in five games last season, completing 71.1 percent of his throws for 1.057 yards and four touchdowns with three interceptions.

He and Kirk Cousins again will be ready to step in if Robert Griffin III gets hurt or is ineffective.


Redskins' Jay Gruden: We'll go into 2015 with Robert Griffin as 'No. 1 guy'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) 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
(2/5/2015) 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.
