Robert Griffin III opted not to fuel the controversy over the firing of Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, but was very gracious in his remarks.
“I just wanted to share that Coach Shanahan has taught me a lot in just two years of being with him,” Griffin said. “I want to thank him for drafting me to the Washington Redskins and giving me a chance to live out my dreams. I also want to thank Kyle and Matt for working so hard with me every day, day in and day out. We did a lot of great things together, and I wish all three of them the best in the future.”
Griffin also alluded to the chance for a fresh start for the Redskins. “Looking forward to a new year and building this team back to where we know it should be,” Griffin said.
