Washington Redskins Robert Griffin III report: Strong finish - ESPN
Another reminder was provided Monday when Griffin connected with DeSean Jackson on a shallow route versus a blitz. The play would have resulted in a good chunk of yardage. It makes me wonder how often teams will blitz knowing the speed Washington has at receiver -- if they don’t get to Griffin. The key for Griffin will be reading the blitz and being decisive with his throw. The Redskins’ defense has helped him by giving him multiple looks and using a variety of blitzes.
"It’s been a grind," Gruden said. "When you’re around the same guys for five days in a row for about 18 hours a day, you get tired of looking at them. I’m tired of looking at them and I want them out of the building for a few hours; enjoy themselves and get a nice dinner and be ready to work on Wednesday."
RICHMOND, Va. -- Some notes from Monday's Washington Redskins training camp practice.

Garcon, who had a couple of practices early in the team-drill portion of Monday’s practice, said that he felt some soreness in the hamstring, and this early in training camp didn’t believe it would be wise to push it. "I’ll be good. No need to rush," he said.
"Boom. Pack a bag. Let’s go," the 6-foot-1, 263-pound Brown said he told himself. Monday morning, Brown had a good workout, signed his contract, got fitted for pads and helmet and 24 hours after walking into the church, he stepped onto the practice field. And shortly after he was lining up for a one-one-one drill against 6-foot-6, 314-pound tackle Morgan Moses – one of the biggest lineman on the roster. "I definitely had to get my mind right," Brown said with a laugh. "It’s a mindset. When I got lined up, I said, ‘You’re in full pads, so the bullets are flying, so you’d better be ready.’ "
RICHMOND, VA. -- The starting job isn’t up for grabs, which is wise considering that player is a guy who has rushed for nearly 3,000 yards in hi
Kirk Cousins has a new ride, and it's pretty hot.
"I think it’s been excellent," Griffin said. "When you start off Day 1, by Day 5, you need to be a better football team, and I think that’s what’s happening. It’s not just offense, but defense, special teams. I think we’re coming together, and that’s what you want to see throughout camp."
Ryan Clark returns to D.C. after eight seasons in Pittsburgh. The veteran safety believes this unit possesses the most talent of any he's played on during his 13-year NFL career.
The Redskins donned full pads Monday for their fifth day of training camp, and, in contrast to four years under previous coach Mike Shanahan, current coach Jay Gruden permitted them to get particularly frisky.
With NFL training camp underway, let's look at the biggest storylines to watch for in camp the next month.
