Some Redskins players told TMZ that they’re happy that Robert Griffin III was benched in favor of Kirk Cousins.
One player told us, “We’re relieved. This is good for the team.”
Another player was more blunt … saying, “We have a better chance of winning with [Kirk Cousins] than Robert Griffin. Sometimes teams need a change and we obviously did.”
Even the defense is excited — with one starter saying, “The team is excited with the change. We are all looking forward to Kirk leading us this season.”
As for Griffin, one player tells us it’s not personal, it’s just business — “Robert is a professional. He will be ready when his number is called.”
