Dysfunction seems to be running rampant in the Redskins organization as the team is trying to deal with the concussion situation plaguing quarterback Robert Griffin III. Or that's what some reports would lead folks to believe anyway.
An earlier ESPN report suggested that a disagreement was emerging between Redskins owner Dan Snyder and GM Scot McCloughan on what to do with RG3, including the possibility of releasing the former Rookie of the Year.
A new report from Pro Football Talk disputes that there was any disagreement, and uses some colorful language in the process. From PFT:
Multiple sources tell PFT that, contrary to a Sunday afternoon report from ESPN, no schism exists between owner Daniel Snyder and the people he has hired to run the football operations regarding the status of quarterback Robert Griffin III.
ESPN claims that the coaching staff and front-official officials want to move on from Griffin, but that they are “meeting resistance” from owner Daniel Snyder. Three different sources have told PFT that this simply isn’t true. (One source calld it “spaghetti journalism,” with reports being thrown against the wall at a time when a situation that seems to be disintegrating cries out for more and more efforts to advance the story.)
As one source explained it to PFT, everyone in Washington is on the same page regarding the roles and responsibilities. G.M. Scot McCloughan is in charge of the roster, which soon will be at 53, and coach Jay Gruden decides who will play.
Like most things with RG3 and the Redskins, stay tuned for more on this story.
