Griffin already has started to throw with his receivers this offseason. And he plans to work with his teammates again in Arizona in March. Griffin also will work out again with Terry Shea, the former NFL quarterbacks coach who trained him before the NFL draft. There's a desire to improve his footwork and to speed up his release
"Everybody will see a big jump in his game and he'll look more like he did in Year 1 than in Year 2," said former Redskins quarterbacks coach Matt LaFleur.
Griffin worked with Shea before his rookie season but wasn't able to last year while he recovered from reconstructive knee surgery. The report added Griffin most likely won't wear the knee brace that limited his mobility in 2013.
"We’re definitely going to be around. Probably go to Miami. I’m trying to talk him into going to Miami. South Florida is home."
Garcon, who at one point last season said the Redskins "suck at passing," has high hopes for 2014.
"We have a good offense. We definitely have great players," Garcon said. "We have a good tight end, a good running back, a good quarterback, good receivers. What else do you need on offense?"
“With Robert, we’ll obviously use his skill set differently," he continued. "When it comes to the quarterback position, my job is to make him comfortable and productive. I’m not going to try to turn RG3 into Andy Dalton or Drew Brees. He isn’t them. They’re not him. I would be foolish to try to turn RG3 into a pocket passer. It would be foolish.
"The way he is as a runner, we have to take advantage of that. He strikes fear into defensive coordinators when he runs outside. I’m going to let him be himself.”
“Excited, man. Can’t wait to get to work,” Griffin told the paper. “Key takeaways: excited to get this thing going, get better together, have fun, win.”
Griffin said he plans to immerse himself in Gruden's system. The system "is expected to have a fair amount of familiarity to the Redskins’ previous offense because Gruden comes from the same West Coast offense coaching tree as did [fired coach Mike] Shanahan," the report said.
