"For all the turmoil I had to deal with in Washington, my corner of the world was very stable because of Danny," said Albright, who signed with the Redskins in 2001.

(I guess they're not as excited about putting Kirk Cousins in prime time.) But according to Adam's report, there's nothing the Redskins can tell anyone yet other than that Griffin is likely to start training camp on the physically unable to perform list "giving him more time to heal and the team an extra roster spot to bring another quarterback to training camp."

Wearing a dark gray suit and a burgundy-and-gold-striped tie, he walked without crutches down the red carpet.

If the Redskins want to start playing the disrespect card right now they can. The defending NFC East champs are tied for the longest Super Bowl odds in the division. The Giants, who were 9-7 and in second place, and Cowboys, the third-place team at 8-8, are both 20-1. The Eagles, who were a dismal 4-12 and will be starting over again with new coach Chip Kelly, are also 25-1.
