RGIII says he can 'play free' in Year 2 under Gruden

Robert Griffin III is optimistic Year 2 in Jay Gruden's offense will be much different than his disappointing 2014 season.

"Second year in it, I feel like you can go out there and you kind of know what to do, and I think that helps," Griffin said, via the Washington Post. "You can play free and not be worrying about a thousand different things at one time going on in your head.

"I just feel more comfortable in the office, comfortable with where I'm at and comfortable with the coaches. That's all you can ask for."

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported last week that the Redskins plan to help out RGIII by pounding the ball on the ground a lot more than last season.

Griffin understands his sensational rookie season is long behind him. Now he says he's willing to be any type of quarterback Washington needs to win.

"Whatever they ask me to do, that's what I'm trying to do," Griffin said. "So if they call drop-back plays, I'm a drop-back QB. If they call on-the-move plays, then I'm an on-the-move quarterback. When things break down, I'll just be myself.

"... I've just been focused on fundamentals and being consistent with everything every single day, coming out there trying to make sure that every day is a new day and playing everything honest."

RGIII also needs victories and more consistent play or his days in Washington are numbered.
