âThey offered me a private workout and we refused. I didnât do any private workouts for anybody,â Griffin said, according to The Washington Post. âAfter that, I think feelings mightâve been hurt or something like that. I went to D.C. on a visit and (Indianapolis) didnât offer a visit at all, and so we kind of knew what direction they were going. But Andrewâs their guy. You canât be mad about that.â
And in a statement that supports all the positive press Griffin gets about his makeup, he explained his view of himself will change in the next day.
"As of Thursday as of 8 and 8:10 (p.m.), me and Andrew are two of the worst quarterbacks in the NFL," Griffin said. "Thereâs Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, Eli, I could go on for days -- sorry if I didnât mention you; donât be mad. Theyâre great quarterbacks and weâre back at the bottom of the totem pole. Maybe we wonât be the worst, but by no means are we 1-2. We know that we have to compete."
That doesn't sound like a "selfish" guy to us.
