Robert Griffin III embracing Jay Gruden's approach
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III declined to compare new coach Jay Gruden with former coach Mike Shanahan, but RG3 made it clear he's enjoying working with Gruden.

"I just know that Jay sees things from a quarterback’s perspective, having been a quarterback, and being a younger coach," Griffin told the Washington Post. "He knows quarterbacks need weapons, so we’ve added weapons. He knows quarterbacks need protection, so we’ve added protection. Really, in this league and this game, it’s about making the quarterback comfortable, and that’s what he’s in the process of doing, and at the end of the day, it’s on me to make everything work, and that’s what I’m going to do.

"Coach is giving me all the proper tools, and he’s putting the tools in the shed," Griffin added. "I’m ready to go to work. I’ve got my hard hat on, and I think everybody else [does] too."

Griffin told the paper his top offseason priorities are to re-establish sound fundamentals and regain confidence after a year he described as “a whole journey of second-guessing and wondering."

DeSean Jackson has 'something special' for Eagles
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Denying that he was ever a problem in the Eagles locker room, new Redskins receiver DeSean Jackson said on The Arsenio Hall Show that he's planning to play big when he takes on his former team this season. 

"Not once, twice," Jackson said about how often he'd play the Eagles. "There's going to be something special about those two games for sure."

Jackson also claimed all the discussion about him being a bad teammate is off base.  

"As far as being a bad energy in the locker room, none of that stuff ever occurred," he said via NFL.com. "I love my teammates, I love to go out there and do the things I can to help my team win and at the end of the day, that's all it's about."

Robert Griffin III looking like old self
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

A couple of members of the Redskins organization have started raving about how good quarterback Robert Griffin III looks this offseason, reports the Washington Post.

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.'"
