Gruden: Robert Griffin III won't run as much
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Redskins coach Jay Gruden told NFL Network Thursday morning that quarterback Robert Griffin III won't have as many designed runs as he had in his first two years in the league, but that he does have the green light to scramble when necessary. 

"As far as him running in the pocket, quarterbacks make those decisions, not me," Gruden explained. "On game day, it's hard for me to tell them, 'Stay in the pocket -- don't scramble!' But we'll have some designed plays where we get him outside, let him use his legs, obviously it would be stupid not to."

Gruden did add that RG3 has made "some serious strides" this spring in knowing when to throw and when to bail out of a pass play and run.

Robert Griffin III getting some extra help
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will work with quarterbacks coach Terry Shea next week, reports ESPN. Griffin worked with Shea earlier this offseason for a week, but wanted another tune-up before training camp begins July 24.

The last time Shea worked with Griffin they focused on Griffin's fundamentals, including narrowing his base, getting his feet to turn with his body in the pocket and raising where Griffin held the ball -- at times last year he held it too low, leading to a wind-up throw.

Robert Griffin III excited for chance to change calls
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

One of the new benefits of working with Redskins head coach Jay Gruden that Robert Griffin III didn't have with Mike Shanahan is the ability to change calls at the line of scrimmage. The Washington Post did a nice job showing examples of what RG3 couldn't do last season but the Bengals, Gruden's old team, did do. 

The end result should be Griffin being comfortable behind center and able to adjust on the fly to what he sees on the field. 

"If you're going to give me more opportunities and allow me to control the offense more, that's all a quarterback can ever ask for," Griffin said. "So, I'm excited for the opportunity to do everything, and I think Jay is going to allow me to do that. That's no pressure. That's what you want."

It remains to be seen if Griffin can clearly decipher defensive blitzes before and after the snap and adjust accordingly, but having the chance to make changes should cut down on the number of sacks he takes. Griffin has been taken down 76 times since entering the NFL.

McVay: Robert Griffin III doing 'an excellent job'
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay said he is "really excited" to see quarterback Robert Griffin III back on the field, reports the team's official website.

"I think going into his third year, you see a lot of progression both from a physical and a mental standpoint," McVay said. "Some of the things that we've done with him the past two years are similar and some are also different. He's done an excellent job of transferring his knowledge in the meeting rooms to on the field recognizing some of those looks and audibles and recognizing things at the line of scrimmage. We will give him the chance to have great success this year."

RG3: 'We will have definite mismatches'
by Larry Hartstein |

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III said he can't wait to start working with an offensive cast that includes running back Alfred Morris, receivers DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts, and tight end Jordan Reed.

"I'm eager to see how we mesh together," Griffin told "That's exciting for a quarterback. We can work matchups. We will have definite mismatches and then it will be good to distribute the ball around."

Griffin is excited about the variety of routes his receivers can run.

"All those guys can run," Griffin said. "None of them are limited to routes. It's not a limited route tree, which is exciting for a quarterback and exciting for an offensive coordinator calling plays. Now you know I can put these guys in any position and they can all run the routes."
