Redskins first-year offensive coordinator Sean McVay hinted that QB Robert Griffin III shows none of the effects of his rookie-year knee surgery and saying of Griffin: "I don't think there's any question: He looks explosive."
"He looks like he is exactly what he was in the 2012 season," McVay recently told ESPN Radio, via The Washington Post. "I think people underestimate when you have a brace on your knee how much that truly restricts you. ... So I think being able to take that off, he looks extremely explosive."
Griffin owned the #3 PPG in his rookie season, but that fell to #17 last season due to the inefficiency of the team’s offense and his ability to run on his surgically repaired knee. The knee should be close to 100 percent entering the season, but there is a new coaching staff in town, led by HC Jay Gruden. The team added DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts in free agency, so RG3 has a great receiving corps at his disposal.
