Washington Redskins: Word Of Robert Griffin III ‘Shunning Teammates’ Should Be Disregarded

Robert Griffin III

Brad Mills-USA Today Sports

Word has it that Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III has been alienating himself from certain teammates on the first-team offense. According to these rumors, Griffin is not very well liked in the locker room and he has been holding those teammates at arm’s length.

Allegedly, it’s all about to come to a head.

These speculations regarding RGIII’s egotistical and juvenile behavior are amplified by his ongoing struggles to master Jay Gruden‘s new playbook and system. Of course, rumors are simply just that at this point, though the same source also suggested that the New England Patriots hailed Redskins backup quarterback Kirk Cousins as the superior signal caller during the teams’ joint practices.

It was also reported that Cousins was closing the gap on the Redskins’ QB depth chart, though it should be noted that the news are coming from unnamed sources, which do not lend too much credibility to the reports.

This is a topic that really doesn’t need to be addressed at this point of the preseason, though unconfirmed reports like this have a way of riling up the cynical section of a fanbase hungry for any bit of information coming out of the Washington camp — information that might fuel their misguided criticisms of the team.

It’s one of the realities of being a sports fan in today’s social media world, and in this case, the rumors about RGIII being involved in any locker room drama should be ignored by the Redskins’ faithful until a credible source can verify them. Until then, these second-hand and unconfirmed reports are about as legitimate as the content you’d see in the tabloids stacked in the checkout aisle at your local supermarket.
