The Washington Redskins officially signed wide receiver DeSean Jackson on Wednesday morning, and excitement has been high since news of the deal surfaced. While fans may be looking forward to the team's new-look offense in 2014, quarterback Robert Griffin III wants fans to keep their expectations in check.
“We are excited to have him join our team,” Griffin told 106.7 The Fan via text message.
“Our team and this city will be there for him. I understand his drive and his competitiveness to win. Always doing it for his dad and now doing it for this city. It’s an exciting time be a Redskin fan and a part of this team because of the fire power that we have with all our guys. Everyone needs to understand that we haven’t won anything yet, and these next few months will be about building those bonds and chemistry so that we can.”
The Redskins have made multiple splashes in recent years that have led to high expectations heading into the regular season, but those moves have rarely led to immediate success on the field (see: Haynesworth, Albert).
