Redskins offensive lineman Tyler Polumbus has been impressed with Robert Griffin III since Griffin was drafted last year.
“He had every right to come in and act like one of those draft picks who thinks he’s a big deal,” Polumbus said via Bleacher Report. “But he didn’t. He was a pretty relaxed guy. Trust me, I’ve seen rookies come in and act the opposite. He didn’t. He was professional beyond his years.
“I’ll never forget how he came up to me one day and said, ‘I’m not going try and tell veterans what to do just because I’m the quarterback. I’m a rookie. I don’t know anything. You’re the vet. I’m going to listen to you.’ I had never heard a rookie talk like that before.”
Polumbus says Griffin III hasn’t changed at all.
“I don’t think he’s changed since the first time I met him,” Polumbus said. “He has always been one of the hardest-working guys in the weight room and classroom. That’s still the same. Nothing has changed.”
