Robert Griffin III may be known to many for his elusive skills to avoid a rush inside the pocket, but for the Washington Redskins they are blown away by his arm strength.
The Washington Redskins have held nine days of offseason practice so far — a three-day rookie camp and six OTAs — so they’ve gotten a chance to formulate early impressions of rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III.

“It’s more of running to your left and flicking your wrist and throwing the ball 70 yards,” described backup quarterback Rex Grossman, comparing Griffin’s arm action to Michael Vick’s. “His arm almost comes off like a whip.”
Redskins tight end Logan Paulsen says Griffin’s throws are made on a beeline because they “come so hard they don’t have time to rise or fall.” Read more here…
