RGIII Runs Pratices

According to NFL.com, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is leading his teammates in player-only passing practices in Waco, Texas. Players that are in Waco include Santana Moss, Pierre Garcon, Fred Davis, Anthony Armstrong, Aldrick Robinson, and Brandon Banks.

With Griffin being a rookie, this is a very impressive feat that he has accomplished. He has collected veterans of the team for private practices that he is leading. This speaks to the leadership that he is capable of. He's only been in D.C. for a couple months and he is already a bonafide leader of the team.

This will also help the Redskins be more ready for when training camp rolls around. Since the quarterback and the recievers are already getting reps together, they won't have to waste time getting used to playing with each other. Now, they will be able to dive right into the playbook and begin learning/perfecting the offense.

Already, Robert Griffin III has had a huge impact on this Redskins team. Not only is bringing a sort of hoopla that hasn't been seen around these parts in a while, he is also bringing this team together (another thing that's new).

In an interview with one reporter, Griffin said: "I think next year we'll do it somewhere more flashy, more vacation-like. Miami or Los Angeles."
