By most accounts Robert Griffin III did not look great on the first day of Redskins training camp in Richmond. Jay Gruden said so.
Jay Gruden said that Robert Griffin III, like every quarterback, will be working on the mental aspect of the game for his entire career.
What will be most important for Griffin during training camp and the preseason, Jay Gruden said, will be the repetitions he'll receive in practice. Griffin said his greatest mental development during the offseason was his ability to learn the playbook, but it will be up to him to now show that he's been able to handle it.
It's no secret that at times in his two year NFL career, there has been too much exposure to RG3. So what's the best plan for Griffin?
Robert Griffin III is well aware that there is a lot of work involved in being an NFL quarterback.
With a steady rain slightly delaying the scheduled start by a half hour and subsiding only with roughly 30 minutes remaining, Griffin and his Redskins teammates had to slog through less-than-ideal conditions for their first practice since the end of offseason workouts in mid-June.
While this Redskins campaign does not lack for story lines, two stand out: RG3's return to form, and the addition of wide receiver DeSean Jackson.
Jay Gruden said that he doesn't anticipate any issues in his relationship with Robert Griffin III -- as long as they win.

Robert Griffin III acknowledges that the Redskins deep and talented corps of receivers will see fewer targets. But he's also confident they'll check their egos at the door.
Need to Know: For his first two years with the team, fans were anxious to read almost anything about RG3. This offseason, not so much.
"Every coach does things differently, so this whole offseason with Jay and Sean, I've had the opportunity to learn a lot," Griffin said. "I've learned what they want to work on. I've learned what they deemed is necessary to be successful. Every coach has his own philosophy, and I feel like I've learned a lot from them already. I look forward to continuing to learn from them."
"It's really just a good thing to have two coaches that believe in you," Griffin said. "Sean and Jay have done a great job of giving me a lot on my shoulders in that quarterback room, and you know, I cherish that. You want to be asked to do more — or just to do the bare minimum. As a quarterback, you have to have that fire in your heart that says when things are going wrong, you're going to get it right."
