âI mean, you have to give respect where respect is due,â Griffin told The SiriusXM Blitz, according to The Washington Post. âSo before I even talk about football with them, I just try to express to them that I was a Broncos fan growing up, so coach Shanahan coached those teams that I watched and that influenced me to play football."
The Redskins have limited their discussions with Griffin in accordance with league rules, avoiding specifics of the team's offense. But Griffin said "they didnât trade up to the second pick for no reason.â
Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay said Monday his team has not decided whether to take Griffin or Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck with the No. 1 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. But Griffin will not work out for the Colts, general manager Ryan Grigson said.
Griffin said he would not be offended if the Colts select Luck.
âYou know, I donât mind playing in Indy, I donât mind playing in Washington -- itâs just a matter of whatâs the best fit and who really wants you," Griffin said. "And weâll know on draft day, or maybe even before that ... In my opinion, for myself, I feel like I can do both systems. But itâs all about having fun, and itâs all about winning.â
