Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III approves of general manager Bruce Allen’s moves in free agency.
“I think this offseason, based on the history I know of the team, has been great,” Griffin said, per CSNWashington.com. “It’s not a big splash, the signings that we’ve had. But it’s made our team better.”
Allen has quietly addressed the Redskins needs, adding seven players in free agency, including two on offense.
“We’ve gotten better over these last couple of weeks of free agency,” Griffin said. “[Wide receiver] Andre Roberts and [guard] Shawn Lauvao will be assets to us.”
Griffin says there been a new buzz at Redskins Park since Jay Gruden succeeded Mike Shanahan as head coach in January.
“It’s been fun,” Griffin said, asked about the offseason. “To feel the new energy that’s in the building with Coach [Jay] Gruden in there, the new players that we’re going to be get in free agency, it’s been great.”
Griffin also confirmed to CSNWashington.com Monday night at the Ed Block Courage Award ceremony that he will not wear the bulky knee brace in 2014.
“I think it’s safe to say I won’t be wearing the brace,” Griffin said.
