Robert Griffin III knows his future in Washington boils down to how he handles life under center come September.
"I'm not worried about next year," Griffin told reporters Monday, per CSN Washington. "I'm worried about this year."
The Redskins quarterback spoke with optimism about a second season in coach Jay Gruden's offense, saying "you definitely feel a difference" by sticking with the program.
Redskins wideout DeSean Jackson told ESPN 980 last week, per The Washington Post, that this year's attack was about "really going back to what (Griffin's) good at doing," adding: "Whatever that is, hopefully we're able to get back to that and let him get comfortable."
Griffin wouldn't give anything away, but he didn't dismiss Jackson's hints of a scheme dotted with RGIII-esque plays.
"I'm not here to give away secrets or anything like that," Griffin said. "I look forward to playing football to the best of my ability, and the best of our team's ability. Coach is going to put us in situations to help us succeed. That's what it's about. What we do well is what we're going to do."
We can spend next offseason wondering if the 'Skins will follow through on Griffin's $16.1 million 2016 option, which is only guaranteed for injury.
The more pressing question is whether scheme tweaks will fix what we saw last year from RGIII: A quarterback hampered by slow decision-making from the pocket and lacking the speed he brought into the league in 2012. Better game tape is required before we buy into talk of a new creation in the nation's capital.
