Washington Redskins Hall of Fame quarterback Sonny Jurgensen believes rookie Robert Griffin III is just what his former team needs.
“This is exactly what the Redskins need,” Jurgensen said. “He’s very gifted. He’s such a tremendous athlete. I’ve never seen anyone so quick playing that position.”
“I think,” added Jurgensen, “he’s going to have a great year.”
Jurgensen also believes Griffin will do fine when it comes to dealing with the hype that surrounds him in Washington DC.
“He’s smart enough to understand – just ask anyone who knows him,” said Jurgensen. “He’s from a military family. He understands there’s a lot of work that goes into making everything happen.”
