Robert Griffin III, Fellow Redskins Complete Rookie Mini Camp

With a brief practice Sunday morning, Robert Griffin III and his fellow rookies completed the 2012 Redskins Rookie Mini Camp. After the practice wrapped up, Griffin met with the media where he offered some insight on his first workouts with the team.

Although Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said that Griffin is the team's starter "period", RGIII isn't viewing it that way.

"You go from being top dog at your college to bottom of the barrel in the pros even if you are supposed to be the starting QB."

Griffin also spent the mini camp rooming with fellow rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins. The two spent some study time together, and while the selection of Cousins baffled many, Griffin was told that the Redskins were going to take another quarterback if available in the later rounds.

Those who watched Griffin workout over the past three days say his skills are as advertised, including Washington Examiner columnist Rick Snider who was quick to compare him to a Redskins legend.


Griffin will be practicing with the first team during OTA's, which begin May 21.
