Robert Griffin III: "It's not a competition" for starting QB slot

Robert Griffin III appears to be comfortable in his role as the new face of the Washington Redskins. So much so that he told the Washington Post that he doesn't consider fellow Redskins rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins to be his competition.

“With Kirk, it’s fine. They brought me in for a reason. We all know they brought me in to be the starter, and I plan to be the starter, and they brought him in for a reason as well. He knows that. And it’s not a competition. Let’s just go ahead and say that. But we’re cool....We work out together, we were roommates for rookie minicamp, so there’s no conflict there.”
The Redskins turned heads by drafting both Griffin and Cousins in this year's NFL draft. Veteran QB Rex Grossman is also on the Redskins roster, and has been expected to back up Griffin.
