Redskins' Andre Roberts expects a passing oriented offense

The Washington Redskins singed Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Andre Roberts, and he said playing with quarterback Robert Griffin III was a part of the reason he signed. It is his other subtle reasoning that is interesting though, he says the Redskins will become more pass oriented.

“You could tell he has that fire and that passion and that motivation to get better every day,” said Roberts, via ESPN. “When you have a guy that talented, that’s that motivated and willing to work, the sky’s the limit. Being a receiver, having a quarterback like that, that’s what you want, especially in a passing offense which we will be in now for the most part. When you have a quarterback that’s motivated and coming off the year he had with a chip on his shoulder, that’s what you want as a receiver.”

Despite all their woes last season, the Redskins still boasted the league’s fifth best rush offense averaging 135.3 yards per game. In 2012, the season they went to the playoffs, the Redskins had the league’s best run game averaging 169.3 yards per game. Changing gears to a pass centered offense is an interesting shift and gamble.
