To be fair, he said he was declining all private workouts. His Pro Day was going to be his only workout.


That said, I think he privately wishes for the Redskins. The Redskins didn't request a workout because, hey, they're taking whoever the Colts don't want. They don't have a choice.

Shanny's happier a rat in a dumpster, isn't he?

And look at Lil Danny, he's trying to grow a 'stache. Magnum Snyder, PI?

Yeah, to be fair you should have mentioned that the Colts story broke first, then it was revealed he wasn't working out for anyone.


This guy is hoping Irsay doesn't change his mind

Report: RGIII already learning Skins' offense

Redskins OC Kyle Shanahan will reportedly meet with Baylor QB Robert Griffin III a couple of times per week leading up to the draft.
If it's true, the report speaks of the level of confidence by both the Redskins and Griffin's camp that the Colts are locked into Andrew Luck with the first pick. RGIII will get a head start on the Redskins playbook in the meantime, expediting his NFL learning curve.


I'm no NFL expert, but I'd think this would be in violation of draft tampering rules....


...that is, unless the headline is a bit sensationalized.

Since Griffin isn't a NFL employee yet or signed with any team, I'm not sure tampering would apply. Definitely no CBA violation for the same reason. Looks like the Redskins are taking advantage of a loophole.

Of course, I'm sure all of the teams agreed not to exploit this loophole, so the Skins will be fined cap space and draft picks next year.

Yes, that mighty Shanaweasel offense would be exposed for all to see. :?

But it would be funny just watching the battle of wits between Irsay and Snyder.

I don't think it's even a loophole - anyone in the country is allowed to share their playbook with anyone. If the playbook belongs to a specific team or company, they would have to approve it and I suppose they did.

I guess the NFL could pass a rule stating that no team can share their playbook with any player not in the CBA but it would probably create more problems than it's worth. And it wouldn't be able to stop one of Shanahan's buddies or ex-coaches from sharing it either.

The skins and RG3 are doing the right thing here - get as big a jump on everyone as you can with learning the playbook and getting ready for the season. It does give the teams with the first/second pick a bit of an unfair advantage but i suppose when you're drafting that high you could use a bit of it.
