Robert Griffin III's Redskins and Tom Brady's Patriots will hold joint practices in Richmond, Virginia, next week and Griffin hopes to learn something from the three-time Super Bowl champion.

“If I get a chance to sit down and talk to him, I’d love to, just to pick his brain,” Griffin told CSN Washington. “But he’s also still playing quarterback in the NFL. It’s a competitive position, a competitive sport. So I don’t expect him to give me any groundbreaking secrets.”
