Quarterback guru Terry Shea told USA Today that embattled Washington Redskins star Robert Griffin III has “looked 100-percent healthy” this offseason.
“He looked 100-percent healthy,” said Shea, who worked with RGIII prior to the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine. “Reminded me of the old Robert Griffin. I liked everything I saw.”
The 24-year-old Griffin, who clearly never recovered from reconstructive surgery to repair the ACL and LCL ligaments in his right knee, didn’t resemble the 2012 Offensive Rookie of the Year after hastily returning from a severe wound to compete in a collision sport.
Employing hideous mechanics as a quasi gimp, Kim Kardashian’s wet dream regressed and only hit 60.1 percent of his 456 attempts.
Overall, Griffin tossed 16 scores, against 12 interceptions, for 3,203 yards over 13 contests.
Reportedly again able to finish the 40-yard dash in 4.3 seconds, RG3 also rushed 86 times for 489 yards.
While stranded in the basement of the NFC East at 3-10 and directing the league’s 23rd ranked attack, axed Redskins coach Mike Shanahan benched Griffin in favor of Kirk Cousins.
Considering that Griffin had displayed horrific footwork, looked slow as a runner and was tentative in the pocket, Cousins deserved an opportunity under center.
Regardless, now “100-percent healthy,” expect Robert Griffin III to reemerge as a dominant playmaker this autumn and eventually guide the Redskins to their first championship since the 1991 campaign.by
