Gruden: Robert Griffin III 'on steady climb'

CSN Washington - [Full Article]

The Redskins have been in training camp for five days now, and reports are that quarterback Robert Griffin III has looked sharp. On Monday, head coach Jay Gruden echoed that sentiment.

"I feel like he's on a steady climb," Gruden said in a press conference. "And we just gotta keep him that way."

But while Griffin's reported progress is a great development for the team overall, Gruden knows that having all the focus on #10 isn't the way things need to be.

"We're trying to make this more about the team than Robert," he said.

Gruden said it's more knowledge of the system and repetition that's helped RGIII look more comfortable. The coach added they want to keep building him and build his confidence and surround him with a good running game and defense.
