on

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III knows  this year will be  a make or break year for him as a quarterback in the NFL.  New coach Jay Gruden thinks he has the answer for Griffin  who brings his knowledge as an offense guru from the Cincinnati Bengals.  after a standout rookie year in 2012 Griffin struggled last year with an 82.2 quarterback rating that led to widespread criticism about his play.

“It will come,” Gruden said. “He’s got the ability to do it, he’s got the smarts to do it, he’s got the wants to do it. He’s just got to do it.”

“I’ve learned that not everybody’s going to like you, and that’s just the nature of the business,” Griffin said. “You just have to move on from that kind of stuff. I think Jay being here has helped me grow as a person. Trust me, I’m not worried about anybody liking me.

“Our job is to ignore the noise and stay focused on what we have to.”

Alfred Morris  will be the featured back for the Redskins  And Griffin will have former Philadelphia standout receiver DeSean Jackson and  Pierre Garcon, who led the league last season with 113 receptions.

New Houston Head Coach coach Bill O’Brien has number one pick Jadaveon Clowney  joining an already stout defense that features JJ Watt,  who recently signed a new $100 million contract extension.

“Money doesn’t motivate me, greatness does,” Watt said. “I’m so fortunate that I don’t have to worry about the money, so I can focus on the greatness. At the end of the day, I want to play this game because I want to be the absolute best I can be.”

Veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick, who will be starting for his third team in as many seasons as is the health of running back Arian Foster. Andre Johnson is still with the Texans although the thought was he would not make it through the preseason without being traded.
