Former Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden accepted the Washington Redskins head coaching job on Thursday, which led to some immediate discussion about what the future would hold with the team’s quarterback competition.
Gruden convinced the Bengals to draft traditional style quarterback Andy Dalton over Colin Kaepernick when he was calling the shots in Cincinnati, so what could that mean for Robert Griffin III?
Apparently not too much.
Wasting no time and putting an immediate end to the speculation, Gruden announced that Robert Griffin III was the team’s starting quarterback moving forward.
