Robert Griffin III feels great ahead of Redskins training camp
Thursday June 18th, 2015

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III says this is the best he has felt over the last couple years as the team's 2015 training camp approaches, according to ESPN's John Keim. 

"I feel great," Griffin told ESPN. "I feel great about the guys around me...that's all you can ask for."

The Redskins finished up their last off-season practices on Wednesday, and the team's training camp begins in late July. This year will mark Griffin's second season under head coach Jay Gruden, who used both Griffin and Colt McCoy as the team's starting quarterback at the end of 2014.

Griffin, 25, missed a substantial portion of the 2013 season after undergoing surgery to repair his LCL and ACL, both of which he tore during the 2012 postseason. An ankle injury suffered at the start of the 2014 season caused him to miss six games, and he was benched for another.

The Redskins finished 4-12 last season, good for last place in the NFC East division. The team went 2-5 when Griffin started at quarterback. 

Griffin has thrown 20 touchdowns and 18 interceptions over his last two seasons. He has one year remaining on his contract with an option for 2016 that has already been picked up.

Washington can cut Griffin after the season without facing any salary cap penalty as long as he is healthy.
