News you need to know
General News (Thu Jan 29): John Keim, from ESPN.com, reports Robert Griffin III blames his 2014 woes on his injured ankle. Griffin said, "Last year I wasn't healthy, and it sucked, there's no other way to say it other than that. When you get broken and dragged home in the second week of the season ... When you and your team have big things in mind ... It's just getting healthy, getting the mental break, getting a chance to spend time with family, and then formulate my plan going forward for this year, and go ahead and win games and be playing again at this time next year."

Latest NewsRedskins | Washington not giving up on RG3 (Mon Mar 30, 04:57 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III isn't being given up on by the team's executives, according to executive Doug Williams. 'This is a young guy that's got some talent,' Williams said. 'There are adjustments that he has to make if I think given time, and I think that's one of the reasons why nobody has given up on him. With the talent that he does have, you're hoping that the last couple of years with the injuries and everything is out of the way, that he will develop into the guy that we all hope for him to be. I think it's fair to give him that opportunity.' Our View: Washington gave up too much to give up on Griffin...yet. This season is shaping up to be a make-or-break year for the young quarterback. He needs to stay healthy and prove that he can be the franchise quarterback the team envisioned when they paid a hefty price to move up and draft him second overall in the 2012 NFL draft.
link to story Redskins | Competition not going away for RGIII (Sun Mar 29, 07:28 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will be the first-team quarterback during offseason workouts, according to head Jay Gruden, but Gruden also said he expects QB Kirk Cousins and QB Colt McCoy to be on the roster when the regular season begins. Our View: This is shaping up to be a make-or-break season for Griffin. He'll be healthy, and he needs to improve his play if he wants to continue as the quarterback for Washington. We'll see if the team can craft an offense that best suits his talents.
link to story Redskins | Robert Griffin's option to be picked up? (Tue Mar 24, 04:56 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's option must be picked up by May 3. General manager Scot McCloughan said the team has had discussions about Griffin's option and that they are still talking it through. Our View: This is a make-or-break year for Griffin in Washington. If he can stay healthy and get his career back on track, then Washington would be happy to keep him around. They need to make that commitment now before the option to pick up his fifth-year option is over.
link to story Redskins | Washington willing to draft QB early (Tue Mar 24, 04:30 PM) - Washington Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan said that the team will go with the best player available in the 2015 NFL Draft with the No. 5 overall pick, which means that they could take a quarterback in that spot. Our View: McCloughan could be compelled to take Oregon QB Marcus Mariota if he's available at No. 5, even after the team said QB Robert Griffin III was the team's starter a month ago. McCloughan doesn't think anyone will be handed a job, and they'll have to compete to win a spot.
