Washington Redskins' Robert Griffin III 'looks like a different QB' at OTAs

Without question, the Washington Redskins' playoff hopes hinge on getting the rookie version of quarterback Robert Griffin III back on the field running the offense.

In that 2012 season, Griffin lit the NFL world on fire, throwing for 3,200 yards with 20 touchdowns and just five interceptions (along with 815 rushing yards and seven touchdowns on the ground).

2013, though, was a completely different story, as he battled back from the knee injury he suffered at the end of that rookie campaign. The former Heisman winner had one of the worst sophomore slumps in recent memory, throwing for just 16 touchdowns with 12 interceptions while seeing action in just 13 games.

But with the injury behind him, and a shiny new toy to play with in free agent pick up DeSean Jackson, Griffin is set to hopefully have a comeback season in 2014, and according to USA Today's Jim Corbett who was at Redskins camp on Wednesday, RGIII looks like a whole new man.

Specifically in the report, Corbett points out that Griffin looks better without the knee brace. During his struggles last year, many folks pointed to the brace as a reason for the drop-off from his rookie campaign, as it limited his amazing mobility in the pocket, thus throwing his entire game off.
