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 | CBSSports.com
(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.


RG3: 'I could've sat out the rest of last year' after hurting ankle


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2015) 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
(1/29/2015)
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
(12/29/2014) 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.


RG3 wants to be back with Redskins in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III said he wants to return to Washington in 2015. However, Griffin -- who has one year left on his rookie contract -- said he has not had any discussions with coach Jay Gruden about his status for next season.

"We haven’t had that discussion or cleared the air on any of that kind of stuff," Griffin said, per ESPN. "My focus is, I want to be here. I want to help this team win, try to turn this thing around and change the culture around here. That’s my only focus. If coach Jay and this organization wants me around, then I’ll be here I’ll be ready to go. I’ll make sure that happens."

The Redskins finished last in the NFC East in 2014 with a 4-12 record. Griffin went 2-5 in seven starts this season and missed several weeks due to an ankle injury. He is 14-21 in three seasons with Washington. He was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III continued his miserable season during a 44-17 loss to the Cowboys Sunday.

Griffin struggled throughout the game, completing 27 of 41 pass attempts for 336 yards and two interceptions. His main highlight came in the first quarter when he connected with DeSean Jackson on a 69-yard touchdown pass. Griffin also scored on a 2-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter and finished with 19 rushing yards on six attempts.

He finished the season with six interceptions and only four touchdown passes. Griffin did not throw multiple touchdown passes in any game this season.


Redskins release final injury report for Week 17 against the Cowboys


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) Redskins defensive end Jason Hatcher has missed practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Hatcher has missed Washington's last two games with a knee injury.

Trent Williams (shoulder), Chris Baker (toe/elbow), Gabe Miller (ankle), Keenan Robinson (knee) and Stephen Bowen (ankle/illness) are all listed as questionable for the game. 

Robert Griffin III (shoulder), Bashaud Breeland (thigh), Barry Coefield (shoulder), Tom Compton (knee), Will Compton (shoulder), Jackson Jeffcoat (calf), Kory Lichtensteiger (stinger) and Darrel Young (ankle) are all considered probable.

The Redskins are currently 5 1/2-point underdogs at home against the Cowboys. 


Robert Griffin III dealing with 'mildly sprained shoulder'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III suffered a "mildly sprained [throwing] shoulder" when he was sacked by Fletcher Cox in the Week 16 win over the Eagles, coach Jay Gruden told the Washington Post. Griffin was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Gruden said Griffin did some throwing Wednesday and should be fine with rest and treatment, but a final determination will be made Friday. Kirk Cousins would start Sunday if Griffin is unable to play.

Washington is a 6.5-point home underdog to the playoff-bound Cowboys.


Redskins' Robert Griffin does just enough to secure win over Eagles


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III did not find the end zone, but was able to manage a 27-24 home victory over the Eagles in Week 16.

Griffin was picked off by Nate Allen in the fourth quarter on a pass intended for DeSean Jackson for his only blemish of the night. He completed 16 of 23 passes for 220 yards, registering an 81.8 passer rating. He was sacked twice and also rushed for 11 yards on five carries.

Griffin has combined for 456 yards with one touchdown and one interception through his last two starts. He'll look to end the season on a high note Week 17 against the Cowboys.


Redskins' Gruden: Plan is to start RG3 over McCoy vs. Eagles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Monday the plan is for Robert Griffin III to start at quarterback Saturday against the Eagles.

Griffin replaced Colt McCoy in Sunday's game against the Giants after McCoy aggravated a neck injury on the opening drive. Gruden said McCoy will continue to be monitored by doctors during the week.

Gruden added the team will try to build the offense around Griffin's strengths. He said it's important for the run game to be effective in order for Griffin to be productive.

"It's important for our offense to rally around him, and to play well around him, also," Gruden said. "Moving forward, this is Robert's team right now."


Robert Griffin III impresses off the bench


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III put together a solid effort in Week 15, as he came off the bench in place of an injured Colt McCoy.

Griffin, who was benched for poor performance three weeks ago, put together arguably his best performance of the season Sunday. He completed 18 of 27 passes for 236 yards and a touchdown, while rushing for 46 yards to finish the game with 19 Fantasy points.

McCoy's injury doesn't seem too serious, but it is possible Griffin remains in the starting lineup moving forward anyways. The Eagles come up on the schedule in Week 16, and Griffin would be just a desperation play at this point in the season. 


RG3 throws for 236 yards as he replaces injured Colt McCoy


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III fared admirably off the bench in place of quarterback Colt McCoy, who aggravated a neck injury on the first drive Sunday against the Giants. Unfortunately, the Redskins still lost, 24-13, Week 15.

Griffin completed 18 of 27 passes for 236 yards and one touchdown, while rushing for 46 yards on five carries. Sadly, Griffin was under pressure all afternoon. He was sacked seven times and fumbled three times.

While Griffin wasn't credited with any lost fumbles, he did have an 8-yard touchdown run on the final play of the first half overturned because it was ruled he was fumbling the football as he went into the end zone.

Griffin's lone touchdown pass was a 9-yarder to running back Chris Thompson in the second quarter, which put Washington ahead 10-7.

The Redskins are back in action Week 16 vs. Philadelphia.

"We've got to look at film and see where we stand," coach Jay Gruden said about his quarterback situation. "Robert's definitely in the mix. He came out here and competed, which I like."


Redskins' Robert Griffin III: 'My confidence is still sky high'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III said Wednesday that his confidence remains "sky high" despite being benched in favor of Colt McCoy and serving as a backup over the last two weeks, CSNWashington.com reports.

"Your confidence can’t be shaken by anything that happens in your career," Griffin said after Wednesday’s practice. "So, for me, my confidence is still sky high."

McCoy was limited in practice Wednesday after suffering a neck strain in Week 14. Coach Jay Gruden has yet to name a starter for Week 15.

"Whatever Coach decides as far as the quarterback position, what we’re going to do going forward, that’s up to him," Griffin said. "I’m just here to help this team win."

The Redskins enter Sunday's matchup with the Giants on a five-game losing streak and with a 3-10 record on the season.


Redskins' Jay Gruden not ready to name starting QB for Week 15


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Wednesday he is not ready to name his starting quarterback between Colt McCoy and Robert Griffin III

"I know you guys are contacting all your sources available, but you guys are not gonna know this week," Gruden said Wednesday. 

McCoy, who sufferd a neck strain in Week 14, was limited in practice Wednesday. Gruden said McCoy "has a chance" to start. 


Robert Griffin III is Redskins' contingency plan 'for now'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said if quarterback Colt McCoy (neck) can't play Week 15 at the Giants, Robert Griffin III would start, reports the Washington Post. But Gruden added RG3 is the contingency plan "for now" and that Kirk Cousins also would get consideration.

"It's hard to say right now," Gruden said, per the paper. "I don't know how healthy [McCoy] is. I'm not going to make any assumptions or conclusions until I get all the tests back from the doctor."

McCoy left Sunday's shutout loss with a neck injury and was replaced by Griffin. Gruden hopes Griffin will be more decisive if he gets another chance.

"Hopefully he's taken a step back and taken everything in and just continuing to learn the position and learning about the concepts that we run, and hopefully he'll have more of a confident air about him when he jumps back in there, and there's less indecision is what we're hoping for," Gruden said.

"That he is decisive and will just pull the trigger and make plays," Gruden added. "We've just got to get him to relax and play and have some fun and lead a team, if he's the guy to do it."

McCoy had a stiff neck Monday morning and had to turn his whole body to look left or right, the paper said. McCoy replaced Griffin as the starter two weeks ago after Griffin was ineffective in three straight games.


Redskins' Robert Griffin III won't lobby for starting job in Week 15


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III said after Sunday's loss to the Rams he will not make a push for the starting job this week. 

“If he decides to put me in, I’m ready to go, but I am not going to undermine anybody else or be that player because that’s not who I am,” Griffin said.

Griffin was forced into action late in the 4th quarter after starter Colt McCoy suffered a neck strain. Griffin was 3 of 4 for 33 yards in his one drive. 

The Redskins will head to New York in Week 15 to face the Giants. 


Robert Griffin III makes an appearance for Redskins


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III made an appearance late against the Rams.

Griffin came on in relief of Coly McCoy, who had an awful start and left with a neck issue. Griffin got just one drive, but was able to complete three of his four attempts. He gained 33 yards. Griffin did take a sack on one of his two other dropbacks, losing 8 yards. 

It's unclear if Griffin will return to the starting lineup Week 15. If he does, he would take on the Giants.
