Pierre Garçon, RGIII set up offseason workouts together

They’ve been on the same team for the last two years, but Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and wide receiver Pierre Garçon have had a few obstacles get in the way of working together over that period.

Garçon’s 2012 season was spent battling a foot injury that kept him out of the lineup often and limited his ability to build chemistry with Griffin during the quarterback’s rookie season. Then Griffin tore his ACL and missed offseason work last season before spending training camp focused on getting his knee ready for the regular season. Griffin was shut down at the end of 2013, costing them even more time together and making it more urgent that the pair find time to work together this offseason.

“We’ve already got that date set up. We’ve already got a place,” Garçon said with a grin. “We’re going to go to Arizona, work out there. We’ll probably do some more in Ashburn. Probably go to Baylor a little bit. We’re definitely going to be around. Probably go to Miami. I’m trying to talk him into going to Miami. South Florida is home. I don’t mind going to Arizona, going to Baylor, going to different places. I enjoy traveling.”

Getting that work in before the Redskins start their organized work is even more important this offseason because the team will be installing new pieces to the offense with Jay Gruden replacing Mike Shanahan as head coach. Getting Griffin and Garçon on the same wavelength will only help that installation be successful and get the Redskins pointed in a better direction offensively.

    I wish Flacco would set up workouts with HIS receivers…

    Pierre Garcon would be an unbelievable fit in New England. Too bad he’s under contract for the Redskins. Love this guy, he’s a younger and faster Anquon Boldin.

    Pierre Garcon is darn impressive, but he’s no Anquon Boldin.

    RGIII will make a huge comeback next year. With the knee finally healed. I expect him to be one of the best in the league again.

    Russell Wilson already has a Super Bowl ring and RGIII hasn’t even won a playoff game yet. Wow!

    and I guess Wilson being on a better team has nothing to do with it? Don’t get me wrong, Wilson is a good, young QB but he is not better than Robert. That being said, Wilson had a better ’13 and he isn’t far behind. Let’s not forget that even with no off-season, a brace, and a healing knee, Robert was right in line with what a normal 2nd year QB looks like. He will return stronger than ever.
