Robert Griffin says he’d take sliding lessons from Nationals Bryce Harper


Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, despite his recent struggles, doesn’t have too many weaknesses. However, when it comes to sliding, RGIII could use a little help.

So why not get some assistance from fellow D.C. superstar Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals? It’s a meeting Griffin is up for, assuming Harper wants to help his cross-town buddy out.

Per ESPN:

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III knows there’s someone in town who might be able to help him with his sliding.

And he’ll be available soon.

“I mean, if Bryce [Harper] wants to do that, I’m definitely up for that,” Griffin said. “Bryce, we can do that if you want to, buddy.”

Harper will have some extra time on his hands after the Washington Nationals’ season ends Sunday. But even the 20-year-old phenom might not provide enough help in teaching Griffin how to do the one thing his coaches want him to do more of this season: get low and avoid big hits.
