Washington Redskins GM Scot McCloughan is very excited to see Robert Griffin III play

The Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has been out of the spotlight lately. The Redskins never picked any quarterback in the NFL draft, knowing that Griffin would be their future.

In the offseason, the competition for the starting quarterback exists, but the Griffin might have a big advantage over his fellow Redskins QB. In connection with this, general manager Scot McCloughan throws positive words on Griffin’s offseason workouts.

As per CSN Washington:

“I’m very, very excited about seeing him,” McCloughan said on ESPN 980’s The Sports Fix on Thursday. “[Getting] my eyes on him at practice and the preseason and going forward into games.”

“They’re hard to find,” McCloughan added, referring to quality starting quarterbacks. “For a guy to walk in this league and be rookie and get rookie of the year on the offensive side and win the division is few and far between [in] the history of the NFL. I’m very excited about it. All I see is positives going forward. Now there’s going to be some setbacks along the way, but I’m looking for him staying healthy and I’m looking forward to him being a really good player for the Redskins.”

Asked by host Kevin Sheehan if there was any concern about exercising the fifth-year option on Griffin’s contract given the 25-year-old’s injury history, McCloughan said there was none. The $16 million option for 2016 is guaranteed for injury.

“No,” McCloughan said. “The reward vs. the risk was much huger.”

Robert Griffin has started in the NFL on 2012, playing 15 games. Griffin completed 65.6 percent of his passes for 3,200 yards, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions. In 2013, he played only for 13 games with 60.1 percent completion for 3,203, 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. In 2014, Griffin played only for nine games, four touchdowns against six interceptions.

This might be the season for Griffin to rejuvenate his career and for the Washington Redskins to be back in the postseason.
