The drama in D.C. continues.
"My job is to do everything we can to win," Gruden said on a conference call. "... At this time, I just feel like Colt gives us a better opportunity."
Griffin's passing mechanics and footwork have regressed, while his confidence has clearly taken a shot. The Baylor product who once froze defenses with his elite speed and pinpoint accuracy has now resorted to dinks and dunks while failing to win a single game this season.
Griffin is entering the final season of his rookie deal and a big decision looms. The Redskins will have to figure out whether to exercise Griffin's fifth-year option by May 3 -- if he's still on the team then.
