RG3 looks relaxed as Redskins begin voluntary workouts

Ashburn, Va. (AP) Robert Griffin III was noticeably more relaxed when he reported for the Washington Redskins voluntary workouts. Maybe it has something to do with him being named Washington's starting quarterback, or that he became a father since the season ended. Or it could be a little of both. Griffin said Tuesday he was ''happy'' coach Jay Gruden named him the starter in February...

Mike Shanahan Still Has High Hopes For Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins

When Mike Shanahan was the head coach of the Washington Redskins he made some waves when he drafted Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins. Why go with Cousins in the fourth round when the team had other needs and RG3 was clearly expected to be the starter? Well--maybe it was because he didn't have much faith in RG3 or drafting Griffin was more Dan Snyder's brain child and he wanted...

What Tannehill’s contract means for Robert Griffin III

Earlier this week it was announced that Ryan Tannehill had signed a contract extension through 2020 worth up to $96 million. After exercising their fifth year option on Tannehill that would guarantee him staying in Miami through 2016, the front office wanted to make it known that Tannehill was their franchise guy.  The move may have surprised a lot of football fans and, in my opinion...

Make or Break Season for Robert Griffin III in 2015

Going into the 2012 draft, Griffin was not perceived as a first round draft pick. He suffered a torn ACL in his sophomore year at Baylor and going into his junior year not much was expected from him. Baylor was not considered a traditional powerhouse in the Big 12. Griffin exploded onto the scene his junior year and led one of the nation's best offenses. He won the Heisman trophy...

What Ryan Tannehill’s new deal means for Russell Wilson and the Seahawks

So the first quarterback from the 2012 class has gotten a new deal. It wasn’t Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III. It wasnt Russell Wilson either. Instead it was converted wide receiver Ryan Tannehill (pronounced Tanny-hill by Jon Gruden). Tannehill’s deal was for six years and 96 million dollars with 45 million guaranteed. That’s a lot of scratch for a guy who’s been above...

NFL expert expresses concern over Washington Redskins’ selection

The Washington Redskins needed to beef up their offensive line. If they didn’t do it and had no way of protecting Robert Griffin III, then his career and tenure with the team would be short-lasted. That’s a huge reason they selected offensive lineman Brandon Scherff with the fifth overall pick, even though many higher-ranked players with more upside like Trae Waynes and Leonard...
