"When you break the salary cap rules, you’re gonna pay a price," he said. "That’s your own fault. When you go out and give a lot of draft picks for one player, that’s your own fault. That’s your bed.

Robert Griffin III preparing for shootout with Peyton Manning
"I mean, you want to have a challenge. Obviously, we don’t want them scoring every time we score. We want our defense to go out there and shut them down, but you’ve got to be ready for anything, and that’s what we said at the beginning of the year. You’ve got to be ready to win any kind of game. Whether it’s a shootout or it’s a tough, hard-fought defensive battle, you’ve got to be able to win either of those, and so, if they score, we score, they score, we score, hopefully, we’re the last ones to score."

Redskins officially re-sign safety Jordan Pugh

Top 10 candidates to swap teams at the trade deadline -
1. Fred Davis, Washington Redskins tight end The Redskins are shopping Davis around the league now that rookie Jordan Reed has emerged as one of Robert Griffin III's most reliable weapons. As a suspension and injury risk with an expiring contract, Davis would be a cost-effective addition for teams in need of offensive punch at tight end. The Jets might revisit the possibility of adding Davis after showing interest in free agency. The Ravens, Chiefs and Packers all have injury concerns at the position, though it's not Green Bay's style to fork over draft picks for veterans. Possible fits: New York Jets, Baltimore Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers
