The Washington Redskins on going soap opera with Robert Griffin III is not clearing up anytime soon.
ESPN’s Dianna Russini and Adam Schefter are reporting that some of the Redskins front office staff want to move on from RGIII, but are getting push back from team ownership, according to league sources.
Washington has also been in conversation with a number of NFL teams about trading the former number two pick, but nobody has shown any interest.
Russini reported just yesterday that coaches are planning to start Kirk Cousins for week 1 over Griffin.
Owner Dan Snyder still supports RGIII and is considered to be the only reason the former offensive rookie of the year has not been released.
The entire Redskins organization has handled this situation very poorly. Head coach Jay Gruden has publicly thrown his quarterback under the bus, and seems to play the I am smarter than everyone card a little too much.
It doesn’t matter who starts under center for Washington come week 1. With this type of situation fans are staring down the barrel of another losing season.
The Redskins will open the season on Sunday, September 13th against the Miami Dolphins.
