Amerson hopes to provide stability along with ‘swag’ in his second season
"Sometimes you’re going to get beat. Sometimes you’re gonna miss a tackle. Man, it’s real out there on the edge," Amerson said. Cornerback "is one of the hardest positions in the league. You definitely have to have some pit bull about yourself. … I do."
Kory Lichtensteiger makes smooth transition to center
But he noted that despite taking his job seriously, he still has had fun in the process. "Very, very good," Gruden said when asked about Lichtensteiger’s play and transition. "Kory’s done a nice job. It’s not easy sometimes for a guard to move into center, but he’s a natural center in my opinion. He’s got great movement obviously, he’s done good with the calls, and of course the snaps have been solid. We had two fumbled snaps the first day in the rain, other than that, in the OTAs and today, everything has been clean. I am very happy with Kory’s progress."

Examining the Washington Redskins' roster: Quarterbacks (3) Robert Griffin III Kirk Cousins Colt McCoy Jay Gruden only had two quarterbacks
Quarterback Robert Griffin III had one of his better throws in camp Sunday morning, tossing a deep out over corner E.J. Biggers to receiver Ryan Grant. Griffin got away with a couple passes that should have been intercepted, but were dropped. Griffin has cut down on the number of times he’s taken off from the pocket as camp has progressed (and it’s not always on him as to why he runs). He did take off one time and showed good speed getting around the edge, with linebacker Brian Orakpo in pursuit, but did not have room to do much other than get out of bounds. Also liked when Griffin whipped a pass underneath to tight end Jordan Reed, showing torque that he didn’t always display in 2013.
"Watching on film, Jordan was there and all I’ve got to do is throw to him and we move on to the next play," Griffin said. "Those are the things you see when they bring those fire zone blitzes and buzzing guys out. Sometimes you can misplace the guy. I’ll never make that mistake again.
Members of an online community of Redskins fans threw a birthday party in Richmond on Saturday night for Robert Griffin III’s mother, Jackie.
