The new Redskins regime has decided to give RGIII a little more freedom this season. After two seasons of strictly running the plays called by then offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, Griffin will now be able to call audibles from the line of scrimmage.
“He did an excellent job above the neck,” Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay said, “as far as absorbing the new system, some of the terminology, . . . He’s done an excellent job translating his knowledge in the meeting room onto the field, recognizing some of those looks.
“Some of the audible situations we’ll give him the opportunity to call things at the line. He’s shown he’s fully capable of doing it and that’s what gives him a great chance to have success this year.”
With RGIII’s versatility, I can only see this working out well for Washington.
