by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

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."
