A couple of members of the
Receiver Santana Moss said via an ESPN podcast that Griffin "looks more comfortable because he don't have to worry about that brace. I think the brace was the big discomfort last year. You know, he’s a young guy with those fiery legs that want to do so much, and that brace probably gave him a little pinch in the behind because he couldn't do the things that he was normally accustomed to doing. You can already see, when we're out there in conditioning and stuff, he's running around, looking like the old Robert Griffin."
And former tight end Chris Cooley, currently one of the team's radio broadcasters, said "he's another person right now. I was like, 'you're running unbelievably well.' It was silly to watch. ... When you watch him run, you're like, 'You're a freak. You're seriously a freak.'"
"He works out more than anybody I’ve ever seen," Gruden told SiriusXM NFL Radio. "If I ever felt like that was an issue, or if he was spending more time trying to create logos than he was working out and getting himself ready to play, then there’d be an issue. But there’s no issue in my mind.
"I think nowadays, these quarterbacks and these players in general, they have people do a lot of work for them," Gruden continued. "They have these mangers, these agents, and these commercial people working for them, and they’re doing all the work. I don’t think Robert’s doing any. He’s just signing off on it. Adidas is doing all the logo things for him. So if it’s extra money for him, have at it. As far as dedication and his desire to win and his work ethic, that is not to be questioned. He’s unlike anybody I’ve ever seen as far as that’s concerned."
It's unclear what number Jackson will wear.
With receiver DeSean Jackson joining the team,
“It’s an exciting time to be a Redskins fan and a part of this team because of the firepower that we have,” Griffin told the Washington Post. “Everyone needs to understand that we haven’t won anything yet, and these next few months will be about building those bonds and chemistry so that we can.”
DeSean Jackson's skill set will mesh with the
"Griffin might not have a laser arm like Michael Vick -- few do -- but it's a very good arm and it's certainly one that should connect with Jackson down the field. Oh, there's also Griffin's ability to extend plays with a group as fast as this one. That, too, should lead to headaches for opposing defensive coordinators in the week leading up to facing this offense."
