Last year, the focus was on Robert Griffin III getting well from a physical standpoint.
But this offseason, he’s impressed his coaches mentally to the point they’re letting him try new things.
According to John Keim of ESPN.com, Griffin will be given the opportunity to call some audibles this year, unlike his first two seasons under Shanahan rules.
“He did an excellent job above the neck,” Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay said, “as far as absorbing the new system, some of the terminology, . . . He’s done an excellent job translating his knowledge in the meeting room onto the field, recognizing some of those looks.
“Some of the audible situations we’ll give him the opportunity to call things at the line. He’s shown he’s fully capable of doing it and that’s what gives him a great chance to have success this year.”
Given Griffin’s ability — when well — to make plays with his feet, giving him some options at the line of scrimmage can only add to his potential.
