RGIII Appreciative Of Tom Brady’s Wisdom, Hopes To Pick His Brain More


NFL: Washington Redskins-Training CampRobert Griffin III wants Tom Brady to carve some time out of his busy schedule this week to chat after one of the New England Patriots-Washington Redskins joint practices.

Griffin briefly spoke with the Patriots quarterback Monday during practice.

“I got a chance to talk to Tom,” the Redskins quarterback said in Richmond, Va., per The Boston Globe. “He’s been saying that he’s been in the same offense for 15 years, which is astounding. That’s amazing. (He) said this is only my third year, said I have a lot of football left in me, and that’s great coming from a guy like him. I appreciate that. Hopefully I get a chance to sit down with him if he’s not too busy. We’ll both be watching a lot of film and getting ready for tomorrow’s practice. Hopefully I get that chance.”

Griffin won’t be ogling Brady during practice this week, however, since he has his own work to do. The two teams hold joint practices Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday before playing their first preseason game Thursday night.

“That’s not really time for us to watch him like we’re at a zoo and try to figure out things that they’re doing,” Griffin said. “I will evaluate them because that’s what quarterbacks do, but at the same time, I’m still focused on what we’re doing as an offense.”

Griffin had a down year in 2013, after coming off a torn ACL. He still completed 60.1 percent of his passes with 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
