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."

link to story Redskins | Robert Griffin option picked up (Mon Apr 27, 08:30 AM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III will have his fifth-year option exercised in 2016. The team views it similar to a franchise tag situation. Our View: Washington invested a lot in Griffin when they moved up in 2012 NFL draft to select him with the second-overall pick. This move keeps Griffin at his rookie salary of $16.1 million in 2016. This is a cheaper alternative than using the franchise tag. Griffin has to show that he can stay healthy and be a reliable pocket passer in 2015. Picking up his fifth-year option would give him two more seasons with the team where they could evaluate his progress.

Our View: We see 2015 as a make-or-break season for Griffin. He needs to stay heatlhy and start playing better or Washington could move on without him next season. Jackson added that the offense needs to build their camaraderie and increase its chemistry for them to improve on a four-win 2014 season.
link to story Redskins | Robert Griffin OK without option? (Mon Apr 20, 06:00 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III said he wouldn't be 'bummed' if the Redskins did not pick up his 2016 option. 'I just want to win. I want to win games and have fun doing it. The rest will take care of itself,' Griffin said. Our View: Does anyone think Griffin will be a long-term solution for Washington? We certainly don't, and we're expecting Griffin to move on for a fresh start when he can. Griffin had a fine rookie season, but injuries and inconsistencies have derailed his pro career. We'll see if he can get things back on track this year.
